What was the FIRST music video you ever saw?
Qboots just reminded me of something in talking about Rod Stewart's night on the town album in another thread and I thought I would ask this question.
What is the first music video you ever remember seeing???
Mine: This was BEFORE MTV (back when we rode dinosaurs to school :laugh "before MTV" does that make me ancient or WHAT?) and it was in the late 1970's. Saturday Night Live used to occasionally use music videos (we didn't know WHAT the heck they were called back then) instead of a live music act.
So the first video I remember was Hot Legs by Rod Stewart on an old SNL show. I don't remember exactly what year, but it was between 1976 and 1980 as I was in highschool and I remember thinking: THIS IS COOL!
Up until then, we only had American Bandstand, Soul Train, Midnight Special and Don Kirshner's Rock concert on tv and they featured live acts or pre-corded music with no artist present and no video.
I was so blown away by it and wanted more. Of course, I did "get my MTV" a few years later and it played almost 24/7 in my apt. with my roommates. :lol (of course this was back when MTV ONLY played videos)
But it will be interesting to hear what others first video was as there is such a range of ages on this site.
