Friday Nineties – MTV Choose or Lose

Back in 1992, MTV decided to goose ratings by making kids think they would make a difference in elections.  So they brought out their Choose or Lose campaign, headlined by Kurt Loder and Tabitha Soren.  Eva Halloween made me think of the whole thing by popping up on my IM on Wednesday night: Kurt Loder…

So now that we are on year six of Friday Nineties and I have, for the first time in five years, not panicked like a freak trying to figure out which song to do.  It’s strangely worrisome.  Or at least it was until I panicked because I didn’t know what the hell else to do. …
