Famous people born on this day include Tyson Ritter and Wesley Armstrong. In that special week of April people in US were listening to Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now) by Phil Collins. In UK Hello by Lionel Richie was in the top 5 hits. The Bounty, directed by Roger Donaldson, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while Who Killed The Robins Family? by Thomas Chastain was one of the best selling books.
