Take me back to February 1, 1994

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

The date is February 1, 1994, and it's a Tuesday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Aquarius. In America, the song "All For Love" by Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart & Sting is at the top of the singles charts, while "Things Can Only Get Better" by D:ream is the number-one song in the UK.

Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Mrs. Doubtfire is at the top of the box office. John Major is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Home Improvement", "Step by Step", "Martin", and "Frasier".

A war is continuing to rage in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Meanwhile, in technology news, a relatively new storage format called the CD is beginning to outpace the regular cassette tape in music sales. The disc-based format gives listeners the ability to skip between songs instead of having to manually rewind and forward. A new form of communication called "text messaging" is starting to become more widespread. However, it can only be done if both the sender and the receiver are on the same cell network.

Meanwhile, a global system called "the Internet" is also starting to take off. Each day, more and more people are learning how to send emails and browse "websites" on the World Wide Web by connecting their IBM computers to noisy dial-up modems. In fashion, "grunge" clothing has fallen out of favor, and women are beginning to wear form-fitting outfits such as slip dresses and pencil skirts. Movies such as Clueless and The Craft have popularized the "sexy schoolgirl" look. It's 1994, so radio stations are being dominated by the likes of All-4-One, Boyz II Men, R. Kelly, Céline Dion, Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, Meat Loaf, Bon Jovi, Wet Wet Wet, Rednex and Mariah Carey.

A former student has fired blank shots from a starting pistol at Prince Charles during his royal tour in Sydney, Australia. The incident occurred while Charles was handing out awards at a ceremony on Australia Day. In soccer, Liverpool manager Graeme Souness has resigned following a recent defeat against Bristol City in the FA Cup. He has been replaced by Roy Evans. In American Football, the Dallas Cowboys have won Super Bowl XXVIII after beating the Buffalo Bills 30-13 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. This is the Buffalo Bills fourth consecutive defeat in the Super Bowl.

In music, rock band Green Day have just released their new album "Dookie". The album contains songs such as "Longview" and "Basket Case". If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Bill Hicks, John Candy, Kurt Cobain, and Richard Nixon would all still be alive. People are playing video games such as "Mortal Kombat", "FIFA International Soccer", "Mighty Final Fight", and "Mario's Time Machine".

Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood", "Thomas the Tank Engine", "In Living Color", and "Goof Troop". Children are playing with toys such as Cabbage Patch Kids, Yo-yo, Nerf Arrowstorm, and Jurassic Park: Young Tyrannosaurus Rex.
