It was Sunday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 19, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Jon Kortajarena and Chris Loudon. In that special week of May people in US were listening to Don't You (Forget About Me) by Simple Minds. In UK 19 by Paul Hardcastle was in the top 5 hits. Fletch, directed by Michael Ritchie, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while Thinner by Richard Bachman was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching About Time.
