Wednesday May 12, 1993

US date format: 5/12/1993, UK date format: 12/5/1993

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 12, 1993). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Sir John Major (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of May people in US were listening to That's The Way Love Goes by Janet Jackson. In UK Five Live (EP) by George Michael & Queen With Lisa Stansfield was in the top 5 hits. Faraway, So Close!, directed by Wim Wenders, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1993 while Perfect by Judith McNaught was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Salto postale. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Batsugun or Barney's Hide & Seek.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
