It was Wednesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 15, 1978). The US president was Jimmy Carter (Democrat). Famous people born on this day include Yiruma and Jeanene Fox. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Stayin' Alive by Bee Gees. In UK Take A Chance On Me by Abba was in the top 5 hits. Bye Bye Monkey, directed by Marco Ferreri, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1978 while The Black Marble by Joseph Wambaugh was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching All Creatures Great and Small. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Astro Battle or Alto Trek.
