Famous people born on this day include Jonathann Daval and Stephan Lichtsteiner. In that special week of January people in US were listening to Owner Of A Lonely Heart by Yes. In UK Pipes Of Peace by Paul McCartney was in the top 5 hits. Broadway Danny Rose, directed by Woody Allen, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while Blue Highways by William Least Heat Moon was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Robin Hood. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Baltic 1985: Corridor To Berlin or Karateka.
