US date format: 3/20/1989, UK date format: 20/3/1989

It was Monday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on March 20, 1989). The US president was George H. W. Bush (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 Xavier Dolan and Catherine McNeil. In that special week of March people in US were listening to The Living Years by Mike + The Mechanics. In UK Too Many Broken Hearts by Jason Donovan was in the top 5 hits. How to Get Ahead in Advertising, directed by Bruce Robinson, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1989 while The Boy Who Couldn'T Stop Washing by Judith L. Rapoport was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Rivalen der Rennbahn. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Chaos Strikes Back or Baseball Stars.
