Wednesday July 21, 1999

US date format: 7/21/1999, UK date format: 21/7/1999

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 21, 1999). 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 Wild Wild West by Will Smith. In UK 9pm (Till I Come) by ATB was in the top 5 hits. The Iron Giant, directed by Brad Bird, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1999 while Bella Tuscany by Frances Mayes was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Metrosexuality. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Jane's Fleet Command or Cyber Team in Akihabara.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 1999 or at July 21 across the years.
