It was Wednesday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 15, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Delphine Ledoux and Carl Medjani. In that special week of May people in US were listening to Don't You (Forget About Me) by Simple Minds. In UK 19 by Paul Hardcastle was in the top 5 hits. Fletch, directed by Michael Ritchie, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while Hold The Dream by Barbara Taylor Bradford was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching About Time. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Beach Head or Master of the Lamps.
