    First ever music video on MTV..

    Awesome catchy music video - whatever hapened to the Buggles??

    I got the MTV launch from 1981 on tape - and Who Video Killed the Radio Star was the first.

    Does MTV play music vids anymore - or that crap offshoot VH!???????????

    The Buggles joined a certain band that released a certain album. Back when.

    Video Killed The Radio Star - leaving aside it was the one that launched MTV.

    Good in its own right.

    My fav after Ticket To Ride.

    Def of a good music vid - when it gets over too quickly - not those that you can't wait to end

    Let's see... The Buggles... Trevor Horn and Geoff Downs....

    Both joined Yes for a brief period, Geoff Downs was 1/4 of Asia. Trevor Horn has been producing, writing songs, and running a music publishing business. He was a founding member of Art of Noise (boy did they suck). Downs is still active with Asia, did a side project with John Whetton last year, and did a Buggles gig with Horn back in September. He works as a producer as well.

    Good morning my TV
    The only one who appreciates me
    I have come to turn you on
    We make a perfect team
    I love you and I think you love me too
    Let's spend the day at home, alone

    Just you and me, you and me
    You and me, my TV

    You got cartoon shows
    Talk shows and horror shows
    Fill my head up with trash
    But I like it that way
    On my TV every day now
    You make me forget the rest

    Just you and me, you and me
    You and me, my TV with your shining screen
    You make me laugh and cry and scream
    Sometimes you make me dream of you
    Oh, yeah

    Goodnight, sweet TV
    I hope you can forgive me
    I have come to switch you off
    For I must go to bed
    And rest my weary head
    Tomorrow we can do it over again
