It was Saturday, under the sign of Scorpio (see birth chart on November 16, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Lily Aldridge and Nick Fradiani. In that special week of November people in US were listening to We Built This City by Starship. In UK The Power Of Love by Jennifer Rush was in the top 5 hits. The Good Father, directed by Mike Newell, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while The Two Mrs. Grenvilles by Dominick Dunne was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Blind Date. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Acrojet or 4-D Warriors.
