I vividly remember MTV coming to Western Pennsylvania when I was in middle school. First video I ever saw was The Fixx's "One Thing Leads to Another." Must have been '82 or '83 maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 7:12am Soggy Donkey:

Thanks for doing this, Carol -- I have really mixed feelings, because the world felt so different then, and I don't wanna miss it, but I do. Those promos especially -- and the accents! I'm anti-nostalgia, so I'm struggling. And also cannot stop listening!

This Billy Idol video made me uncomfortable and creeped out in about 6th grade

I liked how the guys from Big Country went zipping around the Scottish countryside in their ATVs.

'i can smell the shaving cream?' maybe i'm not hearing things correctly.

i wonder when people started writing music to go with a video concept instead of vicey versey.

Used to dig Dolby's early albums; like a lot of artists, I've not heard his later music; stuff to maybe look into...

I still love this song (and still harbor the suspicion it might be an Eric Idle side project)

Talk Talk then go on to male Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock. Unbelievably great.

I never had access to MTV, but the one video that really struck me in that era was New Order's Perfect Kiss

the cover of this with him in boxing trunks reminded me of us kids in gym class wearing those giant elasticized shorts and tee shirts we would 'grow into'

@Fred The Golden Age of Wireless is one of those albums with different track listings for different versions and I'm never sure about which is the 'proper' version

Gizzards, time's up already? Thanks for the memories, Carol. I call it Empty Vee these days. If they're not showing Beavis and Butt-head or The Head, I don't see the point.
