It was Tuesday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on December 31, 1985). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Shay Laren and Anna Wood. In that special week of December people in US were listening to Like A Virgin by Madonna. In UK Do They Know It's Christmas? by Band Aid was in the top 5 hits. Hannah and Her Sisters, directed by Woody Allen, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1985 while Lincoln by Gore Vidal was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Arsenal. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Ice Climber or Galactic Warriors.
