It was Saturday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on February 23, 1985). 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. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Careless Whisper by Wham!. In UK I Know Him So Well by Elaine Paige & Barbara Dickson was in the top 5 hits. Moonlighting, directed by Jerzy Skolimowski, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while Choices by Liv Ullmann was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Fast Forward. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Fooblitzky or Motos.
