It was Friday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on December 27, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Adil Rami and Jérôme d'Ambrosio. In that special week of December people in US were listening to Say You, Say Me by Lionel Richie. In UK Saving All My Love For You by Whitney Houston was in the top 5 hits. Head Office, directed by Ken Finkleman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while World'S Fair by E. L. Doctorow was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching That's Entertainment. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Gribbly's Day Out or Ice Palace.
