Music Video of the Day: Toy Soldiers by Markita (1989, directed by Jim Shea)


I learned something today.

Today, I learned that this song was inspired by a friend of Markita’s who was struggling with an addiction to cocaine. I’m not sure why I didn’t know that but the important thing is that, after the song was released, Markita’s friend eventually conquered their addiction.

Another thing that I learned is that Fergie sings in the chorus for this song. She and Markita knew each other from appearing on Kids Incorporated. Another thing that I learned today is that Fergie and Markita were both on Kids Incorporated. The final thing I learned is that there was a show called Kids Incorporated.

This video was directed by Jim Shea, who went on to direct several country music videos.

Enjoy!
