Take me back to April 6, 1975

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

It is Sunday, April 6, 1975. Anyone born today will have the star sign Aries. People are currently enjoying their weekend. However, because it's a Sunday, some are dreading the days ahead.

In America, the song "Loving You" by Minnie Ripperton is at the top of the singles charts, while "Bye Bye Baby" by Bay City Rollers is the number-one song in the UK. Gerald Ford is the President of the United States, and the movie The Godfather Part II is at the top of the box office.

Harold Wilson is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. In fashion, the hippie look from the 1960s and early 1970s has disappeared. The disco look is beginning to take off. Women are wearing t-shirts, khaki pants, mood rings, kimonos and flare jumpsuits. Meanwhile, men are wearing velvet sports coats, slogan t-shirts, flannel, frilly shirts, jeans and khaki chinos. Because it's 1975, the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Billy Swan, 10cc, Alain Barriere, Morris Albert, the Salsoul Orchestra, Captain & Tennille, Elton John and David Bowie.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Eamon de Valera, Sal Mineo, Anissa Jones, and Rosalind Russell would all still be alive.
