    Though I doubt if any of you kids were around to see it happen. That's what happens when you're old.

    If you're talking MTV, then I'm all over that!




    Yes, I was alive but didn't get the channel until I was about 13...and only after A LOT of begging... (btw, our tv was one of those manual jobs you had to actually get off your rear to change. We had exactly 6 channels of fun, most of which switched to color bars after midnight... When we finally upgraded to REMOTE CONTROL technology--I was banned from using the darned thing. My mother was convinced that pressing the buttons would break it--thus rendering the entire tv useless. I can't blame her though, back then that tv was a bundle.)

    Yes, today is the Anniversary. And while I didn't see the 1st year, I did see the showing of the first video on the 1st Anniversary. (Which was something they did for like 7 years when they were on the air.)

    And, as a bit of history, here are the first non-repeating videos shown that day, in order:



    "Video Killed the Radio Star" by The Buggles (this was always shown on 1 August, at 3 PM or so)

    "You Better Run" by Pat Benatar
    "She Won't Dance with Me" by Rod Stewart
    With further Rod Stewart videos airing at positions #15, #26, #37, #51, #66, and #77, Stewart became the artist with the most videos played that day.

    "You Better You Bet" by The Who
    "You Better You Bet" was both the 4th and 55th video to be aired on MTV, making it the first video to be shown more than once.

    "Little Suzi's on the Up" by Ph.D.
    "We Don't Talk Anymore" by Cliff Richard
    "Brass in Pocket" by The Pretenders
    "Time Heals" by Todd Rundgren

    "When Things Go Wrong" by Robin Lane and the Chartbusters
    "History Never Repeats" by Split Enz
    "Hold on Loosely" by 38 Special
    "Just Between You and Me" by April Wine
    "Sailing" by Rod Stewart
    Stewart's "She Won't Dance with Me" was the 3rd video played; with this video, Stewart became the first artist to have two different videos played on MTV.

    "Iron Maiden" by Iron Maiden
    "Keep on Loving You (Live)" by REO Speedwagon
    "Bluer Than Blue" by Michael Johnson
    "Message of Love" by The Pretenders
    "Mr. Briefcase" by Lee Ritenour
    "Double Life" by The Cars
    "In the Air Tonight" by Phil Collins
    "Looking for Clues" by Robert Palmer (the video never plays due to technical difficulties.)

    "Too Late" by Shoes
    "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" by Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
    "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy" by Rod Stewart (15 seconds into the video, the video screen briefly goes blank while the audio still plays.)
