It was Wednesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 16, 1983). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Alexia Palombo (Star Academy) and Danish Taimoor. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Baby, Come To Me by Patti Austin. In UK Too Shy by Kajagoogoo was in the top 5 hits. Sheer Madness, directed by Margarethe von Trotta, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1983 while Life Extension by Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Hard Word. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Door Door or Manic Miner.
