    I remember a music video show that showed late at night on Fri and Sat nights that we would record to VHS to watch/listen to later. It was called Night Tracks and I think it was on VH1 or maybe a regular channel like ABC, CBS, or NBC. The first video I remember seeing was the Buggles - Video Killed the Radio Star.

    Rick Springfield's 'Jessie's Girl' on a network show called Friday Night Videos. I was hooked from that moment and stayed up to watch every Friday night. The video was a novel concept at that time so I couldn't get enough of it.

    I have since named my 5-year-old daughter Jessie. But not because of that video. I don't think.....

They really should consider changing the name.
    Yep, when I saw this thread, that's the first video that came to my mind. I loved the dancing plucked chicken, and all the fruit swirling around Peter Gabriel's head. I read many years later, it took days to film, and by the end of the shoot, the chicken and fruit stunk to high heaven from the heat of the lights. Why they didn't keep replacing everything with fresh food is beyond me, but I thought it added a fun element to what was already a fabulously creative video.

    I watched the early MTV videos back when Martha Quinn was a VJ. The ones I remember the most are the Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) and Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart.

    The Tubes - Video Killed the Radio Star... My brothers and I sat anxiously in front of the tv for about an hour waiting for MTV to come to life. We stayed up so late enthralled with it all. I believe the 2nd video they played was Eddie Money, Two Tickets to Paradise, at least that's how I remember it...

    The first time I ever saw a music video was back when they played one in between movies on HBO (or Home Box, as we so affectionately called it back then). The two that stick out in mind, and I'm not sure which one I saw first, was Stevie Nick's "Stand Back" and Julian Lennon's "Much Too Late For Goodbyes". Then MTV came around and every kids life changed forever.
