It was Sunday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 13, 1972). The US president was Richard Nixon (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Ely Guerra and Juha Ylonen in Helsinki. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Let's Stay Together by Al Green. In UK Son Of My Father by Chicory Tip was in the top 5 hits. Cabaret, directed by Bob Fosse, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1972 while Eleanor And Franklin by Joseph P. Lash was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Tightrope. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Hunt the Wumpus or Pong.
