Take me back to June 8th, 1977!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is June 8th, 1977, and it's a Wednesday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Gemini. It's summer, so the temperatures are warmer and the evenings are longer than usual.

In America, the song Sir Duke by Stevie Wonder is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, I Don't Want To Talk About It / The First Cut Is The Deepest by Rod Stewart is the number one hit song. Jimmy Carter is currently the President of the United States, and the movie Star Wars is at the top of the Box Office.

In the United Kingdom, James Callaghan is the current Prime Minister. In fashion, clothes have become baggier and pants have become less flared. Sports clothing and the "disco look" are both popular at the moment. Women are wearing sundresses, strapless tops with t-shirts, shoulder pads, cardigans, knee-length skirts and daisy dukes. Meanwhile, men are wearing tracksuits, flare jeans, low-top sneakers and untucked collared shirts. Because it's 1977, the music charts are being dominated by the likes of The Eagles, Donna Summer, Wings, Boney M, Baccara, Stevie Wonder, Barbra Streisand and Debby Boone.

A new song called "God Save the Queen" has recently been released by English punk band The Sex Pistols. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Elvis Presley, Marc Bolan, Charlie Chaplin and Keith Moon would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Maude", "Barney Miller", "Fawlty Towers" and "Charlie's Angels".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Tank", "Pursuit", "Gun Fight" and "Breakout". Children and teenagers are currently watching television shows such as "Captain Kangaroo", "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!", "All in the Family" and "Star Trek: The Animated Series". If you're a kid or a teenager, then you're probably playing with toys such as the Easy-Bake Oven, Magnavox Odyssey, Connect Four and Cher dolls.
