In that special week of January people in US were listening to I'm Your Angel by R. Kelly. In UK Heartbeat / Tragedy by Steps was in the top 5 hits. Last Chance, directed by Bryan Cranston, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1999 while Timeline by Michael Crichton was one of the best selling books.
