Take me back to November 10, 1968

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

It is Sunday, November 10, 1968. Anyone born today will have the star sign Scorpio. People are currently enjoying their weekend. However, because it's a Sunday, some are dreading the days ahead.

It's November, so the evenings are getting darker and the days are getting colder. In America, the song "Hey Jude" by The Beatles is at the top of the singles charts, while "With A Little Help From My Friends" by Joe Cocker is the number-one song in the UK. Lyndon Baines Johnson is the President of the United States, and the movie Funny Girl is at the top of the box office.

Harold Wilson is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. In fashion, a new "hippie subculture" has emerged, bringing with it laid-back Bohemian styles. Frayed bell-bottom jeans, Jesus sandals, crushed velvet suits, and bright tie-dye t-shirts are all popular items of clothing at the moment. It's 1968, so radio stations are playing hit songs from artists such as The Beatles, Louis Armstrong, Otis Redding, The Rolling Stones, Bobby Goldsboro and Marvin Gaye.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Dwight D. Eisenhower, Judy Garland, Brian Jones, and Sharon Tate would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "What's My Line?", "I Dream of Jeannie", "Dark Shadows", and "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Looney Tunes", "Lassie", "The New Adventures of Superman", and "The Herculoids".

Popular toys at the moment include Matchbox toy cars, Etch A Sketch, Suzy Homemaker, and Lite-Brite.
