This week, we’re joined by my good friend Joey Ritter to discuss Martika, a Kids Incorporated success story who scored a #1 hit with her heavy single “Toy Soldiers”. The song serves as a vague cautionary tale about the dangers of cocaine addiction, but it’s hard to interpret how Martika herself factors into the equation. Is she the voice of reason, or was she at any point the voice encouraging a friend to enjoy another key bump? We’d assume she was the sensible one, but one viewing of her INTENSE dancing in some other music videos left us asking questions. Step by step, heart to heart, left right left, we all fall down…into another great episode of One Hit Thunder!
