Take me back to October 19th, 1995!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is October 19th, 1995 and it's a Thursday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Libra. The summer is long gone. Temperatures have started to become much cooler and the evenings are beginning to get darker.

Fallen leaves have carpeted driveways, lawns, pathways and sidewalks and there's a fresh earthy scent in the ear. In America, the song Fantasy by Mariah Carey is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Fairground by Simply Red is the number one hit song.

Bill Clinton is currently the President of the United States and the movie Seven is at the top of the Box Office. In the United Kingdom, John Major is the current Prime Minister. 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. Meanwhile, CDs have become the dominant format for music. People are buying CD players and the portable CD players such as the "Discman". As a result, the older cassette tape format is continuing to decline in sales.

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. A new video game console called the PlayStation has just been released by Sony. In Europe, a war is continuing to rage on in Bosnia and Herzegovina. NATO, which intervened in August, is currently carrying out a sustained air campaign against Serbian forces.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Yitzhak Rabin, Stretch, Roxie Roker and Dean Martin would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Murder, She Wrote", "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman", "The X-Files" and "ER". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Donkey Kong Country", "Mortal Kombat 3", "Full Throttle" and "Air Combat".

Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "The Animals of Farthing Wood", "Bill Nye the Science Guy", "Weird Science" and "All That". Popular toys at the moment include the likes of Polly Pocket, Lego Pirates, G.I. Joe (figures) and Littlest Pet Shop.
