Video Killed The Radio Star - Who knew?

Dameon...they weren't aware of how prophetic they'd end up being! Now, MTV plays reality crap and forgot what the "M" stands for. For my part, I guess I'll just do it the old fashioned way...listening to my Rhapsody library through my computer, hooked up to my surround!!!!!

I don't think the Buggles should be in as artists. "VKTRS" may have been the FIRST video played on eMpTyV on August 1, 1981, it was actually a Top 40 hit in October '79. By the time eMpTyV aired the video, the principal members were doing other projects. Trevor Horn and Geoff Downes had joine Yes in 1980 for the "Drama" album, after which Yes broke up and Steve joined Downes in Asia and Trevor Horn became a much sought after producer (ABC, the reformed Yes, and many years later, Seal)
