It was Tuesday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on August 27, 1996). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Sir John Major (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Stefanie Giesinger and Sophia Stallone. In that special week of August people in US were listening to Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix) by Los Del Rio. In UK Ready Or Not by Fugees was in the top 5 hits. The Funeral, directed by Abel Ferrara, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1996 while The Dilbert Principle by Scott Adams was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Safe and Sound. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Battle Arena Toshinden 3 or Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire.
