“It ain't a crime to be good to yourself” --> Here KISS is once again inspiring people and instilling a sense of self-confidence and pride in Americans
SHOUT IT OUT LOUD
“You got to treat yourself like number one” --> This is an example of KISS giving hope to the people and instilling a sense of self-confidence again, especially after all the hardships before KISS
“If you don't feel good, there's a way you could / Don't sit there broken hearted” --> This statement encourages the American people to get up and continue on with their lives in a positive way despite any bad things that were happening around the world at the time

February 7, 1990 - The Central Committee of the Soviet Communist Party gives up its monopoly of power, continuing the trend, since the beginning of the Berlin Wall coming down, that the Cold War was about to end.
