It was Monday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 17, 1995). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Sir John Major (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of July people in US were listening to Waterfalls by TLC. In UK Boom Boom Boom by The Outhere Brothers was in the top 5 hits. Waterworld, directed by Kevin Reynolds, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1995 while Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching High Sierra Search and Rescue. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Atari Karts or Battles in Time.
