US date format: 4/30/1993, UK date format: 30/4/1993

It was Friday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on April 30, 1993). 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 Henry Zaga and Tarynn Nago. In that special week of April people in US were listening to Freak Me by Silk. In UK Five Live (EP) by George Michael & Queen With Lisa Stansfield was in the top 5 hits. Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Kenneth Branagh, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1993 while Thinking Out Loud by Anna Quindlen was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Salto postale. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Cardiaxx or Blades of Vengeance.
