Take me back to October 6, 2000

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

It is Friday, October 6, 2000. Anyone born today will have the star sign Libra. People have "that Friday feeling" and are excited for the weekend.

The summer is long gone. Temperatures have become much cooler, and the evenings are beginning to get darker. There is a fresh, earthy scent in the air, and fallen leaves have carpeted driveways, lawns, pathways, and sidewalks. In America, the song "Music" by Madonna is at the top of the singles charts, while "Against All Odds" by Mariah Carey & Westlife is the number-one song in the UK.

Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Remember the Titans is at the top of the box office. Tony Blair is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. 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.

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. Meanwhile, the Nokia 3310 is one of the most popular cellphones on the market at the moment. Stores across the world are currently selling a wide range of custom covers for the phone.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Yokozuna, Kirsty MacColl, Dale Earnhardt, and Jennifer Syme would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "The King of Queens", "Becker", "Dark Angel", and "Gilmore Girls". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Mario Party", "Super Smash Bros.", "Rayman 2: The Great Escape", and "Diablo II".

Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Round the Twist", "Teletubbies", "Rocket Power", and "Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids". Popular toys at the moment include Fisher Price Chatter Phone, Eloise Doll, the "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" boardgame, and Intelli Table.
