It was Friday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on February 23, 1990). 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 Karen Kounrouzan and Da'Quan Bowers. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Opposites Attract by Paula Abdul. In UK Nothing Compares 2 U by Sinead O'Connor was in the top 5 hits. The Hunt for Red October, directed by John McTiernan, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while Hollywood by Gore Vidal was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Aerolina. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dash Galaxy in the Alien Asylum or F-Zero.
