Sunday July 01, 2001

US date format: 7/1/2001, UK date format: 1/7/2001

It was Sunday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 1, 2001). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of July people in US were listening to Lady Marmalade by Christina Aguilera. In UK Eternity / The Road To Mandalay by Robbie Williams was in the top 5 hits. Scary Movie 2, directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2001 while The Prayer of Jabez by Bruce Wilkinson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Hell in the Pacific. If you liked videogames you were probably playing City Crisis or Crazy Taxi 2.
