Sunday April 15, 1990

US date format: 4/15/1990, UK date format: 15/4/1990

It was Sunday, under the sign of Aries (see birth chart on April 15, 1990). The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Margaret Thatcher (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Emma Watson and Lily Carter. In that special week of April people in US were listening to I'll Be Your Everything by Tommy Page. In UK Vogue by Madonna was in the top 5 hits. Miami Blues, directed by George Armitage, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while The Bourne Ultimatum by Robert Ludlum was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Gossip. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bonanza Bros. or Balloon Kid.
