It was Friday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 15, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Serkan Kırıntılı . In that special week of February people in US were listening to Careless Whisper by Wham!. In UK I Know Him So Well by Elaine Paige & Barbara Dickson was in the top 5 hits. The Purple Rose of Cairo, directed by Woody Allen, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while Loving Each Other by Leo Buscaglia was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Fast Forward. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Doctor Who and the Mines of Terror or Pachicom.
