It was Sunday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 16, 1975). The US president was Gerald Ford (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Vanina Ickx and Marty Murray. In that special week of February people in US were listening to You're No Good by Linda Ronstadt. In UK January by Pilot was in the top 5 hits. The Passenger, directed by Michelangelo Antonioni, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1975 while Glory And The Lightning by Taylor Caldwell was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Big Showdown. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Indy 800 or pedit5.
