It was Saturday, under the sign of Sagittarius (see birth chart on November 24, 1984). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Maria Riesch and Maria Höfl-Riesch. In that special week of November people in US were listening to Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go by Wham!. In UK I Feel For You by Chaka Khan was in the top 5 hits. Beverly Hills Cop, directed by Martin Brest, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while Loving Each Other by Leo Buscaglia was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Pogo 1104. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Gyrodine or Gust Buster.
