It was Monday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on September 10, 1979). The US president was Jimmy Carter (Democrat). Famous people born on this day include Jacob Young and Andreas Aniko. In that special week of September people in US were listening to My Sharona by The Knack. In UK We Don't Talk Anymore by Cliff Richard was in the top 5 hits. Heartland, directed by Richard Pearce, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1979 while Shibumi by Trevanian was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Face the Music. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Apple Trek or Temple of Apshai.
