It was Saturday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 10, 1980). The US president was Jimmy Carter (Democrat). Famous people born on this day include Zaho and Nicolas Touzaint. In that special week of May people in US were listening to Call Me by Blondie. In UK What's Another Year by Johnny Logan was in the top 5 hits. The Shining, directed by Stanley Kubrick, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1980 while Princess Daisy by Judith Krantz was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Stockard Channing Show. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Carnival or Terrorist.
