It was Sunday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on January 13, 1980). The US president was Jimmy Carter (Democrat). Famous people born on this day include Mirko Soltau and Krzysztof Czerwinski. In that special week of January people in US were listening to Escape (The Pina Colada Song) by Rupert Holmes. In UK Brass In Pocket by The Pretenders was in the top 5 hits. Death Watch, directed by Bertrand Tavernier, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1980 while Triple by Ken Follett was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Anna. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Mystery House or Sea Duel.
