It was Monday, under the sign of Gemini (see birth chart on May 31, 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 May people in US were listening to Livin' La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin. In UK Sweet Like Chocolate by Shanks & Bigfoot was in the top 5 hits. Tarzan, directed by Chris Buck, Kevin Lima, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1999 while The Testament by John Grisham was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Unzipped. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Clans or Doshin the Giant.
