Famous people born on this day include Brian Joubert and Holly Weber. In that special week of September people in US were listening to Missing You by John Waite. In UK I Just Called To Say I Love You by Stevie Wonder was in the top 5 hits. Country, directed by Richard Pearce, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while Pieces Of My Mind by Andrew A. Rooney was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Mensch Bachmann. If you liked videogames you were probably playing B.C. Bill or Hareraiser.
