Take me back to March 7th, 1999!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is March 7th, 1999, and it's a Sunday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Pisces. Currently, people are enjoying their weekend.

Spring has started to creep in and the days are beginning to get longer. In America, the song Angel Of Mine by Monica is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Baby One More Time by Britney Spears is the number one hit song.

Bill Clinton is currently the President of the United States, and the movie 8MM is at the top of the Box Office. In the United Kingdom, Tony Blair is the current Prime Minister. Meanwhile, CDs have become the dominant format for music. People are buying CD players and portable CD players such as the "Discman". As a result, the older cassette tape format is continuing to decline in sales.

In fashion, bright and metallic colors are all the rage. A contrast with the darker "grunge" colors that were popular at the beginning of the 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 sporting a more "dressy casual" look. Shorter hair on men is also becoming more popular. A relatively new form of communication called "text messaging" is continuing to explode in popularity. Although the technology has been around since the mid-1990s, it was only recently that cell providers started to allow users to send SMS messages to people on different networks. It's 1999, so radio stations are being dominated by the likes of Cher, TLC, Monica, Whitney Houston, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Santana and Ricky Martin.

The Nokia 3210 is currently one of the most popular cell phones on the market. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Stanley Kubrick, Joe DiMaggio, Dana Plato and Owen Hart would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "7th Heaven", "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "The King of Queens" and "Will & Grace".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus", "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time", "Silent Hill" and "WCW Nitro". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Moesha", "Daria", "That '70s Show" and "The Wild Thornberrys". Popular toys at the moment include the likes of Jenga, the Nintendo 64, Spice Girls dolls and the Game Boy Color.
