what were the 1st n 2nd videos that it played during its launch?
First one was "Video killed the radio star" by the Buggles...I think.
The second one? I don't know. But nobody ever remembers second place anyway.
Got to meet Geoff Downes from Buggles/ Asia fame recently. Great chap.
2nd video - Pat Benatar - You Better Run
MTV Launch (USA)
1. "Video Killed the Radio Star" by The Buggles.
2. "You Better Run" by Pat Benatar
Got ya by a minute, Spyder!
Remember this bloke!?
Yes you did. Congrats!
J.J. Jackson! Back when MTV actually played videos.
I wasted a good part of my life watching that station back then!
I recall a few people in college who minored in MTV.
I can still vividly remember watching MTV that first month it launched in August, 1981. I also remember Kim Carnes "Bette Davis Eyes" was a huge hit at the time and they gave that a fair amount of air play.
