The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Kolton Stewart and Jack Avery. In that special week of July people in US were listening to If You Had My Love by Jennifer Lopez. In UK 9pm (Till I Come) by ATB was in the top 5 hits. Drop Dead Gorgeous, directed by Michael Patrick Jann, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1999 while Mother Of Pearl by Melinda Haynes was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Black Heaven. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Carmen Sandiego's ThinkQuick Challenge or Earthworm Jim: Menace 2 the Galaxy.
