Take me back to April 3, 2000

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

The date is April 3, 2000, and it's a Monday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Aries. The weekend has just passed, so some people are feeling a bit down. Others are tired after partying too much.

The summer of 2000 is drawing closer, and temperatures have started to rise. In America, the song "Say My Name" by Destiny's Child is at the top of the singles charts, while "Never Be The Same Again" by Melanie C is the number-one song in the UK. Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Erin Brockovich 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 "ER", "3rd Rock from the Sun", "Sex and the City", and "Will & Grace". 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 David Tomlinson, Walter Matthau, Yokozuna, and Kirsty MacColl would all still be alive. People are playing video games such as "Super Smash Bros.", "Grand Theft Auto 2", "Pokémon Stadium", and "Resident Evil - Code: Veronica". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "The Simpsons", "Recess", "The Wild Thornberrys", and "100 Deeds for Eddie McDowd".

Children are playing with toys such as Dragonfly RC Stunt Racer, LEGO Soccer Championship Challenge, Bop It Extreme, and Eloise Doll.
