It was Thursday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 8, 1997). 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. In that special week of May people in US were listening to Hypnotize by The Notorious B.I.G.. In UK Lovefool by The Cardigans was in the top 5 hits. Annamayya, directed by K. Raghavendra Rao, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1997 while The Kiss by Kathryn Harrison was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Knights of Ramune. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Car & Driver Presents: Grand Tour Racing '98 or Bloody Roar.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
