Take me back to February 7, 2000

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

The date is February 7, 2000, and it's a Monday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Aquarius. The weekend has just passed, so some people are feeling a bit down. Others are tired after partying too much.

Valentine's Day is just around the corner. In America, the song "I Knew I Loved You" by Savage Garden is at the top of the singles charts, while "Rise" by Gabrielle is the number-one song in the UK. Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Eye of the Beholder is at the top of the box office.

Tony Blair is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Xena: Warrior Princess", "Everybody Loves Raymond", "The King of Queens", and "Freaks and Geeks". 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.

The Nokia 3210 is currently one of the most popular cellphones on the market. In technology news, more and more music companies are beginning to release MP3 players. The new MP3 format means that music listeners are able to listen to multiple albums on the go. It's the year 2000, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Christina Aguilera, Faith Hill, Savage Garden, Destiny's Child, Santana, Sisqó, Creed, Aaliyah and Enrique Iglesias.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Jim Varney, Tom Landry, David Tomlinson, and Walter Matthau would all still be alive.
