Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of January people in US were listening to Grillz by Nelly. In UK Nasty Girl by The Notorious BIG featuring Diddy, Nelly, Jagged Edge & Avery Storm was in the top 5 hits. A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, directed by Dito Montiel, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2006 while Every Breath You Take by Judith McNaught was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Chaser's War on Everything. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Quickspot or Assault Heroes.
