Monday 20 July 1998

It was Monday, under the sign of Cancer. The US president was Bill Clinton (Democratic). In that special week of July people in US were listening to The Boy Is Mine by Brandy & Monica. In UK Ghetto Supastar (That Is What You Are) by Pras Michel featuring ODB & Mya was in the top 5 hits. Saving Private Ryan, directed by Steven Spielberg, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1998 while The Eleventh Commandment by Jeffrey Archer was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Flame Dragon Plus or Looney Tunes: Carrot Crazy.
