Friday August 08, 1975

US date format: 8/8/1975, UK date format: 8/8/1975

It was Friday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 8, 1975). The US president was Gerald Ford (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Taryll Jackson and Stephanie Kellner. In that special week of August people in US were listening to Jive Talkin' by Bee Gees. In UK I Can't Give You Anything (But My Love) by The Stylistics was in the top 5 hits. Sholay, directed by Ramesh Sippy, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1975 while Without Feathers by Woody Allen was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Floris von Rosemund. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Crash 'N Score or Hi-way.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 1975 or at August 08 across the years.
