Sunday July 22, 1984

US date format: 7/22/1984, UK date format: 22/7/1984

It was Sunday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 22, 1984). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Stewart Downing and Irina Kikkas. In that special week of July people in US were listening to When Doves Cry by Prince. In UK Two Tribes by Frankie Goes To Hollywood was in the top 5 hits. Purple Rain, directed by Albert Magnoli, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while Possessions by Judith Michael was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Vereda Tropical. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Beaky and the Egg Snatchers or Kaiser.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
