Famous people born on this day include Franco Costanzo . In that special week of September people in US were listening to Upside Down by Diana Ross. In UK Feels Like I'm In Love by Kelly Marie was in the top 5 hits. Ordinary People, directed by Robert Redford, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1980 while The Spike by Arnaud de Borchgrave and Robert Moss was one of the best selling books.
