US date format: 4/22/2000, UK date format: 22/4/2000

It was Saturday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on April 22, 2000). 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 April people in US were listening to Maria, Maria by Santana. In UK Fill Me In by Craig David was in the top 5 hits. Frequency, directed by Gregory Hoblit, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2000 while The Lion'S Game by Nelson DeMille was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Gossip. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dimahoo or Battlezone: Rise of the Black Dogs.
