Famous people born on this day include Chord Overstreet and Jenn Aguirre. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Straight Up by Paula Abdul. In UK Something's Gotten Hold Of My Heart by Marc Almond featuring Gene Pitney was in the top 5 hits. Je suis le seigneur du château, directed by Régis Wargnier, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1989 while One by Richard Bach was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Fauji. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bandai Golf: Challenge Pebble Beach or Big Run - The Supreme 4WD Challenge.
