Take me back to October 21, 1995

Let's take a walk down memory lane.

The date is October 21, 1995, and it's a Saturday. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Libra. The work week is over and Saturday has finally come, so people are spending time with their kids, going to bars, shopping, playing video games, and watching sports.

The summer is long gone. Temperatures have become much cooler, and the evenings are beginning to get darker. There is a fresh, earthy scent in the air, and fallen leaves have carpeted driveways, lawns, pathways, and sidewalks. Halloween 1995 is quickly approaching and stores are selling costumes and decorations.

In America, the song "Fantasy" by Mariah Carey is at the top of the singles charts, while "Fairground" by Simply Red is the number-one song in the UK. Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Seven 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 "Step by Step", "Martin", "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman", and "Frasier". 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. 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.

A new video game console called the PlayStation has just been released by Sony. In Europe, a war is continuing to rage in Bosnia and Herzegovina. NATO, which intervened in August, is now 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 still be alive.

People are playing video games such as "RoboCop Versus The Terminator", "Judge Dredd", "Killer Instinct", and "Rayman". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Round the Twist", "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air", "Friends", and "Johnny Bravo". Children are playing with toys such as the Easy-Bake Oven, Pogs / Milkcaps, Sky Dancers, and the Sega Saturn.
