Take me back to April 1, 1995

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

The date is April 1, 1995, and it's a Saturday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Aries. People are currently enjoying their weekend.

It is April Fools' Day, which means that people are playing practical jokes on one another. The summer of 1995 is drawing closer, and temperatures have started to rise. In America, the song "Take A Bow" by Madonna is at the top of the singles charts, while "Don't Stop" by Outhere Brothers is the number-one song in the UK.

Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Tommy Boy 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 "Only Fools and Horses", "Baywatch", "Walker, Texas Ranger", and "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys".

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.

In Europe, a war is continuing to rage in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The CD is quickly becoming the dominant format for music, and people are buying portable players such as the "Discman". Consequently, sales of cassette tapes are continuing to decline. It's 1995, so radio stations are being dominated by the likes of Celine Dion, Everything but the Girl, Coolio, Oasis, Michael Jackson, Boyzone, Madonna, Montell Jordan, TLC and Mariah Carey.

Former football player O.J. Simpson is currently being tried for the murder of his ex-wife and her friend. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Bob Ross, Jerry Garcia, Mickey Mantle, and Yitzhak Rabin would all still be alive. People are playing video games such as "Myst", "Earthworm Jim", "Warcraft: Orcs & Humans", and "Theme Park".

Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Full House", "Round the Twist", "The Ren & Stimpy Show", and "Tales from the Cryptkeeper". Children are playing with toys such as the SEGA Game Gear, Littlest Pet Shop, Mighty Max, and Sky Dancers.
