Take me back to June 18, 1999

Let's take a walk down memory lane.

It is Friday, June 18, 1999. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Gemini. People have "that Friday feeling" and are excited for the weekend.

The summer of 1999 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 "If You Had My Love" by Jennifer Lopez is at the top of the singles charts, while "Everybody's Free (to Wear Sunscreen)" by Baz Luhrmann is the number-one song in the UK. Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Tarzan is at the top of the box office.

Tony Blair is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. 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.

A relatively new form of communication called "text messaging" is becoming more widespread. Although the technology has been around since the mid-1990s, it was only recently that cell providers allowed 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 cellphones on the market.

Friends star Courtney Cox and actor David Arquette have been married in San Francisco. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Fred Trump, John F. Kennedy Jr., Wilt Chamberlain, and Walter Payton would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Walker, Texas Ranger", "ER", "Everybody Loves Raymond", and "Stargate SG-1".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Metal Gear Solid", "Mission Impossible", "WCW Nitro", and "Super Smash Bros.". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Postman Pat", "Dexter's Laboratory", "Cousin Skeeter", and "SpongeBob SquarePants". Popular toys at the moment include Yo-yo, Bop It, Groovy Girls, and Fisher Price Chatter Phone.
