LMT89 song prompt

After hearing that I had been accepted into the Literary Mix Tapes 1989, I immediately started googling like a crazy woman – Wiki’s 1989 timeline of historical events was my first stop and it completely overwhelmed me. I mean, what was it about that year?? I have a big interest in history and link that to my socialist ideals, the absolute glut of political and military uprisings and overthrows, was like a starving chocoholic stumbling into Willy Wonkers factory. That said, I started thinking along the lines of something politically and socially revolutionary in theme.  I remember saying to my hubby how cool it would be if I could have chosen my prompt, as Martika’s Toy Soldiers (released in 1989) would have been perfect … so how freakish was it when Jodi random-hatted me my prompt of exactly that? I’m thinking there’s karma at work here …
