MtvmoonThe band Saxon had a semi metal hit way back in the day that had an opening line that went like this…”Where were you in 79′ when the dam began to burst?” Collectively speaking, the same thing happened in 1981 when a new Music Channel signed on for the first time. Who would have known back then that it would permanently change the way we “look” at music. I remember MTV coming to the Evansville/Henderson area and was being “pitched”. I used to have one of “Flair” stick pin buttons that was given away while they were in town.

When I lived at home, my brother and I had MTV on 24 hours a day…We watched the KISS “Unmasking” live. We also watched Iron Maiden’s Debut of “Two Minutes to Midnight” that first aired at two minutes to midnight”. Go figure! Michael Jackson”s mini horror music video “Thriller” too. Which seemed to air every hour on the hour. It was an exciting time not knowing which video was next to air! It could be a metal band like “W.A.S.P. or an 80’s pop band like “Wham!”. You young kids have no idea what you missed. The hairstyles, the music, the clothes,the girls, the culture. It was an awakening! Just like when the 60’s revolution started! Did you “Catch the wave!”

Check out original VJ Martha Quinn as she looks back on that historical event!

This was the first video to air on MTV. They had no idea how prophetic at the time it would turn out to be.

You think she is. Why? What makes someone too old to be what they want to be or do what they want  to do? Who wrote the rule book? I am not a fan of her music but at her age (look it up at you need to know her age) She is still in shape and making noise. So hats off to her. “Techno” on Madonna!

By the way. There are a slough of celebrity guests in the video. Can you name them all with using GOOGLE?

Under the video is an interesting article from the NYTimes on growing older with Madonna. Check it out.

Growing Older With Madonna – The New York Times 

“But the subject of her advancing years dominates seemingly every conversation about her, as she has become a crusader, willingly or not, against age discrimination. As someone who once tracked her closely, I have watched with queasy fascination her attempts to navigate the undeniable fact that she is growing older before our eyes in an era of obsessive self-documentation and rampant oversharing — one that she had a direct hand in creating.”

Boy George’s vocals have aged like a fine wine. The songs are far deeper and more meaningful than the stuff released back in the day…

” Dave’s TV” 31 + minute update of the 80’s from DLR!

roth36David Lee Roth. Always entertaining! Loved his videos. More eye candy then Playboy or Hustler at the time and damn good music too!Here’s to 80’s…If I only had Stewie’s time machine. Clearly Dave’s technique was influenced by Vaudeville, burlesque and the great dancers from the 50’s. I mean who else but Dave could take a warm sunny surf song from the Beach Boys and turn it into every 15 year old males (and some females) wet dream? Dave did ask the all important question though about a couple of the hot chicks in his videos. He wondered what do 2  former hotties that are now fifty plus year old lesbians do for fun these days. Do they feed Feral cats? LMAO..Enjoy the videos!

Styx “Music Time” Worst video or Genius?

Not sure how to take it. On one side, its funny and other the other side, it reminds me of a David Lee Roth video. His videos in this manner work…but does the Styx one work? Dennis De Young seems to be playing the role of Lou Costello?

notice Tommy Shaw is only in one scene. I guess by the time this came out the band was done. But enjoy the 80’s “HUGE” humor 😉
