It was Monday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 11, 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 Matthew Lawrence and Matthew Lawrence in Montgomery. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Do That To Me One More Time by Captain and Tennille. In UK Too Much Too Young (The Special AKA Live! EP) by The Specials was in the top 5 hits. The Ninth Configuration, directed by William Peter Blatty, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1980 while Aunt Erma'S Cope Book by Erma Bombeck was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Emilia. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Crazy Balloon or Armor Attack.
