US date format: 9/29/1989, UK date format: 29/9/1989

It was Friday, under the sign of Libra (see birth chart on September 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. Famous people born on this day include Yevhen Konoplyanka and Jojo Simmons. In that special week of September people in US were listening to Girl I'm Gonna Miss You by Milli Vanilli. In UK That's What I Like by Jive Bunny & The Mastermixers was in the top 5 hits. Henry V, directed by Kenneth Branagh, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1989 while Silent Partner by Jonathan Kellerman was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Blackadder Goes Forth. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Castle Zhagwhar or Garfield: Winter's Tail.
