    Politics
    The 1990’s consisted of major political changes. Some of which include women, Hispanic, and African American people start to hold more spots in government. Also, President Bill Clinton went through the impeachment process, but ended up staying in office for his full four-year term. Politics played a major part during this time period. President George Bush also served his term during the 1990's. Likewise, when Nelson Mandela was freed from jail, I am most certain that there was some joyful music starting to be composed. On of the songs written in honor of Nelson Mandela was titled "Nelson Mandela", sometimes known as "Free Nelson Mandela", and was written by Jerry Dammers. When Princess Diana was killed in a car accident, the whole world was grieving. This tragic event definitely caused disheartening music. One of the songs that was re-written in honor of her was "Candle In The Wind". The song was originally written for Marilyn Monroe after her death. "England's Rose" was also a song written in honor of the outstanding princess. Both of the songs were written by Elton John. In addition, South Africa held its first free elections in 1994. This event certainly caused music that had a freedom vibe. All together, the 1990’s had many varieties of political events that caused different musical outcomes.
