It was Thursday, under the sign of Taurus (see planets position on May 16, 1991). The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Grigor Dimitrov and Ashley Wagner. In that special week of May people in US were listening to I Like The Way (The Kissing Game) by Hi-Five. In UK The Shoop Shoop Song (It's In His Kiss) by Cher was in the top 5 hits. Proof, directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1991 while Oh, the Places You'll Go! by Dr. Seuss was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching All Good Things. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dizzy Prince of the Yolkfolk or The First Samurai.
