It was Friday, under the sign of Aries (see birth chart on April 2, 1971). The US president was Richard Nixon (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Edmundo Alves de Souza Neto and Todd Woodbridge. In that special week of April people in US were listening to Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me) by The Temptations. In UK Hot Love by T Rex was in the top 5 hits. Don't Deliver Us from Evil, directed by Joël Séria, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1971 while The Greening Of America by Charles Reich was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Ten Commandments. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Galaxy Game or The Oregon Trail.
