Let's go back to the nineties.

It is Sunday, June 28, 1998. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Cancer. People are currently enjoying their weekend. However, because it's a Sunday, some are dreading the days ahead.

The summer of 1998 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 "The Boy Is Mine" by Brandy & Monica is at the top of the singles charts, while "Three Lions '98" by Baddiel & Skinner & Lightning Seeds is the number-one song in the UK.

However, it can only be done if both the sender and the receiver are on the same cell network. 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.

In fashion, bright and metallic colors are all the rage—a big change from the darker "grunge" colors of the early 1990s. Women are wearing maxi skirts, bell bottoms, knee boots, crop tops, tube tops, slip dresses, maxi coats, and platform shoes. Meanwhile, a lot of men have ditched their grunge and skater clothes in favor of a "dress casual" look. They are also beginning to cut their hair shorter. It's 1998, so radio stations are being dominated by the likes of Brandy, Monica, Aerosmith, R. Kelly, K-Ci & JoJo, Céline Dion, All Saints, Steps and Will Smith. The Clinton-Lewinsky sex scandal is receiving ongoing media attention.

In France, the 1998 FIFA World Cup is taking place. In celebrity news, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore have recently announced that they are separating after over 10 years of marriage. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Michelle Thomas, Big L, Stanley Kubrick, and Joe DiMaggio would all still be alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Babylon 5", "King of the Hill", "Stargate SG-1", and "Dawson's Creek". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Star Fox 64", "PaRappa the Rapper", "Age of Empires", and "Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back".
