Wednesday July 18, 2001

US date format: 7/18/2001, UK date format: 18/7/2001

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 18, 2001). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican), 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 U Remind Me by Usher. In UK Eternity / The Road To Mandalay by Robbie Williams was in the top 5 hits. Millennium Actress, directed by Satoshi Kon, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2001 while Between Lovers by Eric Jerome Dickey was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Life as We Know It. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Forever Kingdom or Dark Age of Camelot.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
