I lived in Germany when MTV first started, so I didn’t see it until I was 16. We were visiting friends in San Antonio, Texas, during the Christmas season of 1984. The first video I saw was Hall and Oates’ “Out of Touch” - it’s set on a rooftop. I was so excited - I thought it was the best video ever. The second one was Duran Duran’s “Wild Boys” - remember that one? It had a freaky Mad Max vibe.
30 years old and I still love MTV.
So, what was the first video you saw on MTV?
