It was Friday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 8, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of May people in US were listening to See You Again by Wiz Khalifa Featuring Charlie Puth. Sicario, directed by Denis Villeneuve, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while Dead Wake by Erik Larson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Safe House. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Daydreamer or Lego Jurassic World.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2015 or at May 08 across the years.
