Madonna's 1990 "Rock the Vote Ad" is Hopelessly Dated ... And That's a Good Thing!
Some of the messages have lasting power. Others, like this Madonna video from 1990, are such outdated relics that their only purpose today is entertainment.
Does Madonna really sing, "Freedom of speech is as good as sex"? Of course she does. She's Madonna. In 1990. Back when she was as sexy as, say, men in white tees and tight jorts.
Here are the exact lyrics:
Truth is where you find it
Get uppppp and voooote
Dr. King, Malcolm X
Freedom of speech is as good as sex
Abe Lincoln, Jefferson, Tom,
They didn't need the atomic bomb
If you don't vote, you're going to get a spanking.
