Just explained to the daughter that the “M” in MTV stood for music, and that when it started the station only played music videos. Her response: “Wow, that must have been cool.”
Yes. Yes it was.
Below, the first music video I ever saw on MTV.
If you can find a link to the first video you ever saw on MTV, put it in the comments. No Rick Rolls, please. Unless, you know, “Never Gonna Give You Up” was the first video you ever saw on MTV.
