Take me back to September 21, 1990

The date is September 21, 1990, and it's a Friday. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Virgo. Many people have "that Friday feeling" and are looking forward to the weekend.

Schools and colleges are starting again, and fall has officially arrived. As a result, temperatures are beginning to cool, and trees are starting to shed their leaves. The earthy smells of autumn have started to fill the air. In America, the song "Release Me" by Wilson Phillips is at the top of the singles charts, while "The Joker" by Steve Miller Band is the number-one song in the UK.

George W. Bush Snr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Goodfellas is at the top of the box office. Margaret Thatcher is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Dallas", "Night Court", "Sherlock Holmes", and "Full House".

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.

Despite international condemnation, economic sanctions and demands from the UN Security Council, Saddam Hussein's forces are continuing to occupy Kuwait. A new sitcom called the "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" has just started being aired on television. Anyone driving past a movie theater will see "Goodfellas" listed on the signage out front.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Roald Dahl, John Bardeen, Miles Davis, and Freddie Mercury would all still be alive. People are playing video games such as "Duck Hunt", "Gain Ground", "SimCity", and "Batman: The Video Game".
