It was Saturday, under the sign of Gemini (see birth chart on June 16, 1984). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Rick Nash and Jonathan Broxton. In that special week of June people in US were listening to Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper. In UK Wake Me Up Before You Go Go by Wham! was in the top 5 hits. The Karate Kid, directed by John G. Avildsen, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while Knock Wood by Candice Bergen was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Superstar. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Grand Prix Manager or Avalon The 3D Adventure Movie.
