It was Sunday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on January 6, 1980). The US president was Jimmy Carter (Democrat), 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 Steed Malbranque and Sam Sallon. In that special week of January people in US were listening to Please Don't Go by K.C and the Sunshine Band. In UK Another Brick In The Wall by Pink Floyd was in the top 5 hits. Just Tell Me What You Want, directed by Sidney Lumet, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1980 while Anatomy Of An Illness by Norman Cousins was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Der Millionenbauer. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Star Castle or Dragster.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
