Monday 29 July 1996

It was Monday, under the sign of Leo. The US president was Bill Clinton (Democratic). In that special week of July people in US were listening to Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix) by Los Del Rio. In UK Killing Me Softly by Fugees was in the top 5 hits. Matilda, directed by Danny DeVito, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1996 while Moonlight Becomes You by Mary Higgins Clark was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Leaving Home. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dungeons & Dragons Shadow over Mystara or Cheesy.
