It was Thursday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 16, 1989). The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Elizabeth Olsen and Danielle Haim. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Straight Up by Paula Abdul. In UK Something's Gotten Hold Of My Heart by Marc Almond featuring Gene Pitney was in the top 5 hits. Je suis le seigneur du château, directed by Régis Wargnier, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1989 while The Sands Of Time by Sidney Sheldon was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Fauji. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Eye of Horus or DJ Boy.
