Famous people born on this day include Memphis Monroe and Maurice Jones-Drew. In that special week of March people in US were listening to Can't Fight This Feeling by REO Speedwagon. In UK You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) by Dead Or Alive was in the top 5 hits. Alamo Bay, directed by Louis Malle, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while Glitz by Elmore Leonard was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Half Nelson. If you liked videogames you were probably playing A-Train or Gyromite.
