80's music80's Music Rules!80's music

There was a lot about the 80's music that made it special, not the least of which was MTV, Music Television. Originally, MTV only showed music videos, starting with the Buggles and Video Killed the Radio Star. No song was ever truer, or more prophetic, than this one! No longer did rock stars need to do promotions with local radio stations to get air play. They only needed to produce a great (or not so great) video and hype it up on MTV. After MTV (or was it before, I can't remember) Friday Night Videos was for those of us without cable. This was one of my favorite shows and I can still remember babysitting for the neighbors' kids on Friday night and watching Madonna and Borderline. Wow!
After MTV, along came VH1. Supposedly for older video viewers, VH1 now has some great shows like Where are They Know and Pop Up Video. I think VH1 is better now than MTV is, because they don't have any crappy shows like "The Real World." But I digress!
