Tune Time - Video Killed the Radio Star

This fun tune was released on September 7, 1979 by the British synthpop/New Wave group, The Buggles, as their debut single. The song topped the music charts in several countries, and has been covered by many recording artists. It was the first music video shown on MTV in the U.S. at 00:01 on August 1, 1981.


  1. This is one of those songs that get stuck in your head...for days - fotunately for me I already had "I fought the law and the law won" in there lol!
    Thanks Martha :)

  2. MTV... I remember when they used to play videos...

  3. And apparently Michael Jackson's Thriller video made that prediction come true.

  4. You're welcome, Jane :) This sure is one of those songs that get stuck in your head. I've been carrying this tune in my head since yesterday.


    WebDebris, MTV came to be in the early 80s (81?). Not sure what happened to them over the years.


    Tatiana, you got that right. And Thriller is such a great video.
