It was Friday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 2, 1974). The US president was Richard Nixon (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Angel Boris and Angie Cepeda. In that special week of August people in US were listening to Annie's Song by John Denver. In UK She by Charles Aznavour was in the top 5 hits. Harry and Tonto, directed by Paul Mazursky, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1974 while The Fan Club by Irving Wallace was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Capone Investment. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Elimination or Spasim.
