Famous people born on this day include Genzebe Dibaba and Roberto Soriano. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Gonna Make You Sweat by C & C Music Factory. In UK 3AM Eternal by The KLF featuring The Children Of The Revolution was in the top 5 hits. The Doors, directed by Oliver Stone, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1991 while The New Russians by Hedrick Smith was one of the best selling books.
