Take me back to June 12, 1994

Ready for a walk down memory lane?

It is Sunday, June 12, 1994. Anyone born today will have the star sign Gemini. People are currently enjoying their weekend. However, because it's a Sunday, some are dreading the days ahead.

The summer of 1994 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 "I Swear" by All-4-One is at the top of the singles charts, while "Love Is All Around" by Wet Wet Wet is the number-one song in the UK. Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Speed is at the top of the box office.

John Major is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. 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.

In Europe, a war is continuing to rage 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. TLC singer Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes is in the news for all of the wrong reasons after she recently burned down NFL star Andre Rison's home following an argument.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Andrés Escobar, Raul Julia, Richey Edwards, and Eazy E would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "In the Heat of the Night", "Family Matters", "Melrose Place", and "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "X-Men", "Tiny Toon Adventures 2: Trouble in Wackyland", "Mario's Time Machine", and "Jungle Strike".

Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Taz-Mania", "Goof Troop", "Living Single", and "Sister, Sister". Popular toys at the moment include G.I. Joe (figures), Pogs / Milkcaps, the Talkboy, and Jurassic Park: Young Tyrannosaurus Rex.
