Sunday August 23, 1998

US date format: 8/23/1998, UK date format: 23/8/1998

It was Sunday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on August 23, 1998). 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 August people in US were listening to The Boy Is Mine by Brandy & Monica. In UK No Matter What by Boyzone was in the top 5 hits. Train of Life, directed by Radu Mihaileanu, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1998 while Quite A Year For Plums by Bailey White was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Hercules. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Genjū Ryodan or Armed Police Batrider.
