It was Friday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on January 28, 1983). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Margaret Thatcher (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Virginie Pichet and Camila Alves. In that special week of January people in US were listening to Down Under by Men At Work. In UK You Can't Hurry Love by Phil Collins was in the top 5 hits. Videodrome, directed by David Cronenberg, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1983 while Megatrends by John Naisbitt was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Hard Word. If you liked videogames you were probably playing My Name Is Uncle Groucho, You Win A Fat Cigar or Knights of the Desert.
