It was Thursday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on December 27, 1984). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Gilles Simon and Black M. In that special week of December people in US were listening to Like A Virgin by Madonna. Fatal Games, directed by Michael Elliot, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while God Knows by Joseph Heller was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Drei reizende Schwestern. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dough Boy or Kentilla.
