Thinking about the adidas Mutombo 2013 Release, and what I was doing when they came out 20 years ago –

In January of 1992, Reservoir Dogs appeared at the Sundance Film Festival, by first-time writer-director Quentin Tarantino. The Washington Redskins won superbowl XXVI and Mike Tyson went to trial for rape (he would later be convicted and sentenced to 10 years). The Lakers retire Magic Johnson’s #32 uniform. At the age of 16, Tiger became the youngest PGA golfer in 35 years.

In February, President Bush and Yeltsin proclaimed a formal end to the cold war. A few months later, violent riots erupt in the streets of Los Angeles after four police officers are acquitted in the brutal beating of Rodney King. Clinton and Gore were elected and Democrats kept control of Congress.

After 20 years American’s saw Jhonny Carson’s last appearnce as host of Tonight Show, and watch the final episodes of Growing Pains and Night Court.

And though, IBM announced a loss of 5 Billion, a text-based Web browser is made available to the public, and compact discs surpass cassette tapes as preferred medium for recorded music.


Madonna signed a $60 Million deal with Time Warner and Natalie Cole’s ‘Unforgettable’ won Grammy’s for Record, Album, and Song of the year.

For me, I might not have remember any of that happened specifically in 1992 if it weren’t for Wikipedia. What I wont forget are the songs that were on the radio and television-

According to Billboard, there were some great songs on the charts that year, what were you doing when these were playing?
