It was Saturday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 16, 1987). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Claudia Suárez and Can Bonomo. In that special week of May people in US were listening to With Or Without You by U2. In UK Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now by Starship was in the top 5 hits. Summer Heat, directed by Michie Gleason, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1987 while A Season On The Brink by John Feinstein was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Roxie. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Arumana no Kiseki or Crossroads.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
