Take me back to June 16th, 2000!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is June 16th, 2000 and it's a Friday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Gemini. Currently, people have "that Friday feeling" and are looking forward to the weekend.

It's summer, so the temperatures are warmer and the evenings are longer than usual. In America, the song Maria Maria by Santana is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, It Feels So Good by Sonique is the number one hit song.

Bill Clinton is currently the President of the United States and the movie Shaft is at the top of the Box Office. In the United Kingdom, Tony Blair is the current Prime Minister. 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.

The Nokia 3210 is currently one of the most popular cell phones 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.

Eminem has just released his best-selling album "The Marshall Mathers LP". UEFA Euro 2000 is currently taking place in Belgium and the Netherlands. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as David Tomlinson, Walter Matthau, Yokozuna and Dale Earnhardt would all be still alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Baywatch", "Walker, Texas Ranger", "ER" and "Futurama". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "WWF Attitude", "Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver", "Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings" and "Dead or Alive 2". Children and teenagers are currently watching television shows such as "All That", "Men in Black: The Series", "CatDog" and "Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids".

If you're a kid or a teenager, then you're probably playing with toys such as the PlayStation (PS1), Betty Spaghetty (doll), Finger skateboards and Razor (scooter).
