Take me back to June 6, 1990

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

It is Wednesday, June 6, 1990. Anyone born today will have the star sign Gemini. It is "Hump Day", so many are beginning to think about the weekend ahead.

The summer of 1990 is in full swing. The weather is warm, and the evenings are brighter than usual. Most schools and colleges are now finished until August or September. In America, the song "Hold On" by Wilson Phillips is at the top of the singles charts, while "World In Motion" by England / New Order is the number-one song in the UK. George W. Bush Snr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Total Recall is at the top of the box office.

Margaret Thatcher is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Texting is not a thing yet. Instead, people are using landline phones and pagers. Furthermore, most people have never heard of the Internet. In fashion, many of the trends from the late 80s are still popular. Colored tights, denim overalls, leotards, flannel shirts and shoulder pads are all fashionable at the moment.

It's 1990, so the airwaves are being dominated by music artists such as Sinéad O'Connor, Paula Abdul, Janet Jackson, Vanilla Ice, Mariah Carey, Stevie B, Madonna and MC Hammer. In Europe, Boris Yeltsin has just been elected as the first ever elected president of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Roald Dahl, John Bardeen, and Miles Davis would all still be alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "The Cosby Show", "Married... with Children", "Seinfeld", and "Family Matters". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Super Mario Land", "DuckTales", "Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse", and "Super Mario World". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "21 Jump Street", "Roseanne", "Noozles", and "Doogie Howser, M.D.".

Popular toys at the moment include Pogo ball / Lolo ball, the Ghostbusters Proton Pack, the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive, and Polly Pocket.
