US date format: 5/18/1991, UK date format: 18/5/1991

It was Saturday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 18, 1991). The US president was George H. W. 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 AshONasty and Manu Tuilagi. 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. If you liked videogames you were probably playing DartMUD or Choplifter II.
