It was Sunday, under the sign of Gemini (see birth chart on June 16, 1991). The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Sir John Major (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include CNU (singer) and Joe McElderry. In that special week of June people in US were listening to Rush Rush by Paula Abdul. In UK I Wanna Sex You Up by Color Me Badd was in the top 5 hits. Fires Within, directed by Gillian Armstrong, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1991 while The Commanders by Bob Woodward was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching All Good Things. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Conquests of the Longbow or Famicon Jump II: Saikyō no Shichinin.
