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. Famous people born on this day include Rory Gates and Ezra Henderson. In that special week of May people in US were listening to Livin' La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin. In UK Swear It Again by Westlife was in the top 5 hits. Biwi No. 1, directed by David Dhawan, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1999 while Harry Potter And The Sorcerer'S Stone by J. K. Rowling was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Unzipped. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Cyber Team in Akihabara or The Flintstones: Bedrock Bowling.
