Famous people born on this day include Nikki Webster and Alipate Carlile. In that special week of April people in US were listening to (I Just) Died In Your Arms by Cutting Crew. In UK La Isla Bonita by Madonna was in the top 5 hits. Hellraiser, directed by Clive Barker, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1987 while The Ladies Of Missalonghi by Colleen McCullough was one of the best selling books.
