The Top 100 Songs of 1991*: #60-51

In 1991, The Cold War ended with the dissolution of the Soviet Union, saving both Russia and the United States billions of dollars.  And, Iragi leader Saddam Hussein announced the withdrawal of troops from Kuwait just one month after the United States sent troops to reverse the Iraqi takeover.  Iraqi soldiers set fire to Kuwait old fields as they retreated.
