In that special week of April people in US were listening to Bump N' Grind by R. Kelly. In UK The Most Beautiful Girl In The World by Prince was in the top 5 hits. Widows' Peak, directed by John Irvin, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1994 while A Drinking Life by Pete Hamill was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Marimar. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bodyworks Voyager - Mission in Anatomy or Fred Couples Golf.
