Hi Everybody!!...What a Ride!!...What a Day!!!
As I got lots of sun, and lots of riding, and lots of beer today, the G-Man is rather tired, and I am not well prepared for today's usual Musical Monday.....Sorry!
But I DO have some musical trivia of sorts......
Remember when you could turn on MTV and actually see a Movie Video?
It seems that you can only see them now on Premium MTV channels or in early Morning.
I Hate all these reality shows, and I hate most of their other crap. But here are a few facts
that seems like only yesterday....
MTV, went on air at Midnight, August 1, 1981. It's 1st Video was the Buggles prophetic..
"Video Killed The Radio Star"
The Average MTV viewer tunes in for only 16 minutes at a time.
MTV's VJ's have a very short shelf life, once they start looking old,
They are outta there..( Remember Martha Quinn... How about Kennedy?)
MTV reaches 75% of those households inhabited by people 18-34...
And 85% of the households with 1 Teenager!!
In 1990 MTV first aired "Unplugged".....What could have been a gimmick,
turned into a trend when Paul McCartney released his "Unplugged" appearance as an album, and it became one of his biggest selling albums. Two years later Eric Clapton did the same, and that made "Layla" a hit all over again and earned him a Grammy as well as a Platinum Record!
OK....I'm done. You guys can tell me your favorite Video if you want to.....If you can indeed remember any!.....Peace!
Fatboy Slim..."Weapon's of Choice"...( with Christopher Walken)
Adam Ant..."Goody Two Shoes"
And these last 2 are sorta newer
