I'll never forget seeing the very first day of MTV. Of course, that station now appeals to those below the lowest common denominator, but when it was new and relevant, it was so much fun to watch.
I'm sure that, like me, you had favorite videos and you couldn't wait to see them over and over. Sure you could record them on you VCR (caveman recording), but it was fun to watch 'live'.
Here are my favorite MTV videos from the time before MTV turned to absolute dreck.
