It was Tuesday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on September 17, 1991). The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Minako Kotobuki and Scott Hoying. In that special week of September people in US were listening to I Adore Mi Amor by Color Me Badd. In UK (Everything I Do) I Do It For You by Bryan Adams was in the top 5 hits. Night on Earth, directed by Jim Jarmusch, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1991 while Paradise by Judith McNaught was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Adventures of Tintin. If you liked videogames you were probably playing F-117A Nighthawk Stealth Fighter 2.0 or Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle 2.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
