It was Tuesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on January 26, 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 January people in US were listening to ..Baby One More Time by Britney Spears. In UK Maria by Blondie was in the top 5 hits. Payback, directed by Brian Helgeland, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1999 while Amsterdam by Ian McEwan was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Sopranos. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Asheron's Call or Densha de Go! 64.
