Take me back to May 27th, 1994!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is May 27th, 1994 and it's a Friday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Gemini. Currently, people have "that Friday feeling" and are looking forward to the weekend.

The summer of 1994 has finally arrived. The weather has warmed up and the evenings are brighter than usual. In America, the song I Swear by All-4-One is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Come On You Reds by Manchester United FC & Status Quo is the number one hit song.

Bill Clinton is currently the President of the United States and the movie Maverick is at the top of the Box Office. In the United Kingdom, John Major is the current Prime Minister. 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 continuing to grow in popularity. 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 declined in popularity 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 school girl" 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. In Europe, a war is continuing to rage on in Bosnia and Herzegovina. On the continent of Africa, a horrible event is unfolding, as the Hutu majority in Rwanda attempt to wipe out the Tutsi minority. This genocide began following the assassination of President Juvenal Habyarimana.

The final episode of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" has just been aired on television. In celebrity news, pop star Michael Jackson has married Elvis' daughter Lisa Marie Presley. The media is currently speculating whether or not the marriage is a publicity stunt. The action comedy film "Beverly Hills Cop III", starring Eddie Murphy, has just been released in movie theaters. Meanwhile, "The Flintstones", starring John Goodman and Rick Moranis, has also recently hit the big screen.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Nicole Brown Simpson, Andrés Escobar, Raul Julia and Eazy E would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Matlock", "Family Matters", "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" and "The Nanny". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Syndicate", "Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master", "Myst" and "NBA Jam".

Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Thomas the Tank Engine", "Garfield and Friends", "Doug" and "Home Improvement". Popular toys at the moment include the likes of the Easy-Bake Oven, Transformers, Polly Pocket and Super Soaker (water gun).
