Take me back to November 4, 1995

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

It is Saturday, November 4, 1995. Anyone born today will have the star sign Scorpio. People are currently enjoying their weekend.

It's November, so the evenings are getting darker and the days are getting colder. In America, the song "Fantasy" by Mariah Carey is at the top of the singles charts, while "Gangsta's Paradise" by Coolio is the number-one song in the UK. Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Get Shorty is at the top of the box office.

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

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. In baseball, the Atlanta Braves have just won the 1995 World Series after defeating the Cleveland Indians 4-2. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Stretch, Roxie Roker, Dean Martin, and Margaux Hemingway would all still be alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Married... with Children", "Melrose Place", "Walker, Texas Ranger", and "Touched by an Angel". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Mortal Kombat 3", "Command & Conquer", "Killer Instinct", and "Destruction Derby". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Barney & Friends", "Weird Science", "Aaahh!!! Real Monsters", and "Hang Time".

Popular toys at the moment include Lego Pirates, Littlest Pet Shop, Casio Secret Sender 6000, and Dear Diary.
