It was Friday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on July 26, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Audrey Kitching and Gaël Clichy. In that special week of July people in US were listening to Everytime You Go Away by Paul Young. In UK Frankie by Sister Sledge was in the top 5 hits. Real Genius, directed by Martha Coolidge, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while The Bridge Across Forever by Richard Bach was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Stingray. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Penguin Wars or Richard Petty's Talladega.
