It was Wednesday, under the sign of Gemini (see birth chart on May 29, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Blake Foster and Carey Mulligan. In that special week of May people in US were listening to Everything She Wants (Remix) by Wham!. In UK 19 by Paul Hardcastle was in the top 5 hits. Secret Admirer, directed by David Greenwalt, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while Inside, Outside by Herman Wouk was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching About Time. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Hex or Pachicom.
