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 August people in US were listening to The Boy Is Mine by Brandy & Monica. In UK No Matter What by Boyzone was in the top 5 hits. Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, directed by Guy Ritchie, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1998 while Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Any Day Now. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lego Chess or C3 Racing / Max Power Racing.
