It was Wednesday, under the sign of Libra. The US president was Bill Clinton (Democratic). In that special week of October people in US were listening to Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix) by Los Del Rio. In UK Breakfast At Tiffany's by Deep Blue Something was in the top 5 hits. Sleepers, directed by Barry Levinson, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1996 while My Many Colored Days by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher was one of the best selling books.
