It was Saturday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on June 23, 1984). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Duffy (singer) and Akgul Amanmuradova. In that special week of June people in US were listening to The Reflex by Duran Duran. In UK Wake Me Up Before You Go Go by Wham! was in the top 5 hits. The Hit, directed by Stephen Frears, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while The Witches Of Eastwick by John Updike was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Superstar. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dropzone or High Noon.
