Friday July 18, 1997

US date format: 7/18/1997, UK date format: 18/7/1997

It was Friday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 18, 1997). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of July people in US were listening to I'll Be Missing You by Puff Daddy & Faith Evans. In UK I'll Be Missing You by Puff Daddy & Faith Evans was in the top 5 hits. Perfect Blue, directed by Satoshi Kon, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1997 while Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Tiger Bay. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Duckman: The Graphic Adventures of a Private Dick or BS Fire Emblem: Archanea Senki.
