Subject: Memories of MTV

Written By: woops on 08/02/04 at 10:43 pm

Since yesterday was the 23rd anniversary of the network, why not share your favorite memories or comments about MTV. Good or bad.


IMO, I liked MTV until late 1997 when the current teen pop explosion came about, rap overload, and stopped the MTV 500 and treated the '80's like it never happened. Not to forget T.R.L. & Carsick Daly.  :P


Comments about music videos, Video Music Awards, VJs, etc. are welcomed.  :)

Thanks for posting this topic, woops ;) I have MANY memories of MTV before it SUCKED! IMHO it went down the tubes in the late 80's with the advent of rap-crap and the "Shows"....the closest thing to the GOOD days is VH1-Classic...although lately they are airing MORE commericials ::) My memories of the early days are of the "Fab Five"....Martha, Nina, Alan, Mark and The late J.J. Jackson :\'(.....Friday Night Video Fights, Concerts and of course the awesome videos :)

Like a lot of people I really watched most of my MTV during its "I want my MTV" period, late 1982 to 1985. After that I never really saw that much of it. I do remember catching every now and then a few minutes of its silly game shows they had on in the late '80s (what was the name of the pretty girl who was the hostess/helper for one of them? I don't remember off hand -- I'll check).

When MTV first came on it really opened the doors to music most radio stations didn't want to or couldn't play because it didn't "fit" their format.  It was unreal. You'd see and hear a hundred new songs on MTV and then turn on the radio and hear maybe one or two!

Didn't they get rid of the original VJs in 1985? Is that when it all changed?  ???

Remote Control (1987/1990), featured Colin Quinn, Ken Ober, Adam Sandler, Kari Wuhrer.

Now I did enjoy Remote Control, but when that became popular they started trying to fit other shows in. I think its stupid to have an MTV2 that plays video, when that station should've been for the show programming. I say this b/c alot of cable companies only have MTV. I don't ever really watch the station anymore and I used to watch it all the time. :\'(

I remember being ADDICTED to MTV back in the mid 80s. Corey Hart, Don Henley's (Sp) Boys of summer, David Bowie's fab videos ( I remember watching the double debut of Bowie's "Blue Jean," and that reminds me the debut of Springsteen's "Glory Days."  I would literally sit down at 11pm and watch 'til 2 or 3 am.  But how prophetic it was (Frighteningly accurate) that MTV chose as their first video The Buggles "Video Killed the Radio Star?"  I still tell people, "The Buggles were right!"

Sadly, MTV2 now bites...  :P Like MTV, it's mostly shows & stuff.


Mostly today's rap, numetal, pop punk junk and rarely ever play  classic videos from the 1980's. And sometimes would throw in something from the '90's, but not a lot.

I started watching MTV from day one!  I used to sit for hours and watch videos over and over.  Early MTV helped shape my musical interests and turned me on to bands I had never heard of.  The music was great, the VJs were awesome, and they had the best interviews!  I enjoy VH1 Classic today, but nothing beats MTV CLASSIC!!!!

I remember having MTV on every morning as I got ready for work. It seems to me every morning they would ALWAYS play Hungry Like the Wolf. I can't hear that song today without thinking of those early days of MTV.

They used to have some great contests. I remember they had a house party, and I think even a town.

I also liked Remote Control. I liked it so much that I bought the video game but I couldn't play it on the computer I had (which was a dynosaur). When I first moved in with Carlos, he had a computer that I could play it on but by then, most of the questions were dated (Dead or Canadian-some of them are both now). When we got the new computer-now the game is a dynosaur and once again, I can't play it.

What I would like to know is what happened to the "M" in MTV as in MUSIC?

I don't know if Ebn-Ozn ever went live on MTV.  Coulda been.

Their primary instrument was Fairlight CMI (Computer Music Instrument).
http://code404.com/synths/images/fairlightIII.jpg
Back in the day it was THE state of the art computer music system, and of course it was DIGITAL.
They were incredibly expensive.  Most artists just used them in the studio, but Vince Clarke actually bought one.  That's how Clarke came to be involved with the Wire side project, Dome.  Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis asked him if they could use his Fairlight, he said yes, but only if he could be involved.  He was afraid Gilbert and Lewis would damage his $100,000 music computer!

BTW, Clarke gave up his MIDI ways in '86.  He's been an analogue man ever since.

Ned Lieben, the synthesizer whiz known as EBN, died in 1998 of a heart attack.  Robert Rosen (OZN) is still around.  He's been working in theater and painting.

I really just loved the music videos. All different types of music videos. They really don't play music anymore on that channel and its sad. I loved Remote Control . That was a game based on music. Alot of their shows and games have nothing to do with music. Their VJs actually sat there and just played music videos and that was cool. Now you only see VJs on TRL. They dont even have VJs saying whats coming up next . Thats just some random screen and a voice saying up next "insert dumb tv show".Anyways it sucks that not even VH1 plays videos anymore.

I watched MTV from day one.  I thought it was the greatest thing in the world!  I really enjoyed it late at night when they played the videos that didn't get much airplay during the day.  Those were the days!

I agree with whoever posted that said that MTV2 should be where they put all their crappy programming and leave MTV to music videos, which now can only be seen on MTV Hits.  MTV should change it's name to Pop Culture TV, since that's what they truly are.  I am very thankful for VH1 Classic, but lately they are starting to show some other programming that isn't videos, like "Behind The Music" and stuff like that.  That stuff is OK, but they really need to have separate channels for that stuff.  When I want to watch videos, I want to watch videos, not a documentary on Guns n' Roses.

I didn't know who they were until I saw their video on VH1 Classic twice in one day in late 2002, and it would be 4 years until I heard it again! Great tune indeed. Wounded Bird Records is planning to reissue their album.

So you know, I was really flipped out you know. She asked me if I'm angry or something, I said "Of course I'm angry, man. This isn't high school or anything,  you know. So I'm feeling really cavalier, and I say you know call me, you know if you want to. Yeah, call me if you want to. So she rang me up and she says "Hey, you wanna go out?" Huh! Do I wanna go out!

I still have that album. You can pick up the video on YouTube.

Thank God for YouTube. I'm now able to view the videos I used to like in the '80s, and some by favorite '80s groups of mine (id. Ultravox, Heaven 17, Human League) that I never got to see!

Yeah, I've seen it on youtube. They also have an episode of Beavis & Butt-head on there that has the video.

Does anybody know if OZN has an official website? I've been trying to research him, but I can't find sheesh. I can't even find any information about his screen writing or what movies he worked on.
