Wednesday January 24, 1990

US date format: 1/24/1990, UK date format: 24/1/1990

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on January 24, 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 Mao Abe and Artjom Artjunin. In that special week of January people in US were listening to How Am I Supposed To Live Without You by Michael Bolton. In UK Hangin' Tough by New Kids On The Block was in the top 5 hits. Grand Slam, directed by Giuliano Montaldo, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while Among Schoolchildren by Tracy Kidder was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Aerolina. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Final Countdown or Captain Skyhawk.
