Wednesday January 31, 1990

US date format: 1/31/1990, UK date format: 31/1/1990

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on January 31, 1990). 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 Cro (singer) and Thomas Ospital. In that special week of January people in US were listening to How Am I Supposed To Live Without You by Michael Bolton. In UK Nothing Compares 2 U by Sinead O'Connor was in the top 5 hits. Stanley & Iris, directed by Martin Ritt, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while Foucault'S Pendulum by Umberto Eco was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Aerolina. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Final Lap 2 or F-Zero.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
