Famous people born on this day include Shruti Haasan and Jessica Ennis. In that special week of January people in US were listening to That's What Friends Are For by Dionne & Friends. In UK West End Girls by Pet Shop Boys was in the top 5 hits. Nine 1/2 Weeks, directed by Adrian Lyne, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1986 while Dancing In The Light by Shirley MacLaine was one of the best selling books.
