US date format: 10/31/1984, UK date format: 31/10/1984

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Scorpio (see birth chart on October 31, 1984). The US president was Ronald Reagan (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 Hanna Hilton and Scott Clifton. In that special week of October people in US were listening to Caribbean Queen (No More Love On The Run) by Billy Ocean. In UK I Feel For You by Chaka Khan was in the top 5 hits. A Private Function, directed by Malcolm Mowbray, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while Loving Each Other by Leo Buscaglia was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Fast Forward. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dr. Seuss' Fix-Up the Mix-Up Puzzler or Lode Runner.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
