Ma, I’m Going to Tower Records to Buy a CD
There was something in the air in the 1990s. If you were an impressionable teenager during that time, you felt it. The world itself was changing. Teenagers in the 1990s remember when there used to be an East Germany and West Germany and Berlin was split in two.
