The US president was Ronald Reagan (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 Madeline Zima and Max Minghella. In that special week of September people in US were listening to Money For Nothing by Dire Straits. In UK Dancing In The Street by David Bowie & Mick Jagger was in the top 5 hits. Commando, directed by Mark L. Lester, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while The Fourth Deadly Sin by Lawrence Sanders was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Equalizer. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Doctor Who and the Mines of Terror or Grand National.
