Friday January 26, 1990

US date format: 1/26/1990, UK date format: 26/1/1990

It was Friday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on January 26, 1990). The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Peter Sagan and Sergio Pérez. 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 Antago or Air Inferno.
