Tuesday January 12, 1999

US date format: 1/12/1999, UK date format: 12/1/1999

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on January 12, 1999). 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 January people in US were listening to Have You Ever? by Brandy. In UK Heartbeat / Tragedy by Steps was in the top 5 hits. Cookie's Fortune, directed by Robert Altman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1999 while The Ten Commandments by Laura Schlessinger and Stewart Vogel was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Sopranos. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Buffers Evolution or Castrol Honda Superbike 2000.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 1999 or at January 12 across the years.
