Thursday January 15, 1998

US date format: 1/15/1998, UK date format: 15/1/1998

It was Thursday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on January 15, 1998). 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 Truly Madly Deeply by Savage Garden. In UK Never Ever by All Saints was in the top 5 hits. Pi, directed by Darren Aronofsky, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1998 while Then Came Heaven by LaVyrle Spencer was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Dawson's Creek. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Brave Fencer Musashi or Assault (EU) Assault: Retribution (NA).
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 1998 or at January 15 across the years.
