In that special week of October people in US were listening to One Week by Barenaked Ladies. In UK Rollercoaster by B*Witched was in the top 5 hits. American History X, directed by Tony Kaye, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1998 while Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden was one of the best selling books.
