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 Ínigo Martínez and Johanna Konta. 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 Damage by Josephine Hart was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching All Good Things.
