US date format: 7/16/1989, UK date format: 16/7/1989

It was Sunday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 16, 1989). 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 Gareth Bale and Kim Woo-bin. In that special week of July people in US were listening to If You Don't Know Me By Now by Simply Red. In UK Back To Life (However Do You Want Me) by Soul II Soul was in the top 5 hits. Khoj, directed by Keshu Ramsay, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1989 while The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Split Ends. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Baribari Legend or Gekitotsu Shiku Battle.
