Wednesday November 29, 1989

US date format: 11/29/1989, UK date format: 29/11/1989

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Sagittarius (see birth chart on November 29, 1989). The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Margaret Thatcher (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of November people in US were listening to Blame It On The Rain by Milli Vanilli. In UK You Got It (The Right Stuff) by New Kids On The Block was in the top 5 hits. Music Box, directed by Costa-Gavras, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1989 while Education Of A Wandering Man by Louis L'Amour was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Sweet Life. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dragon Breed or Al Unser Jr.'s Turbo Racing.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
