It’s Throwback Thursday! Today’s TBT song was originally posted as my daughter’s Song of the Day on January 23, 2010!

Today I am really using TBT. Yes, I originally posted this song on my daughter’s page in 2010, but this song is from 1979! I grew up on New Wave music and it is fun to post an old song from my early teenage days.

This song just came up in our house a few weeks ago when we were playing the game, Wits and Wagers. One of the questions was “In what year was the first MTV video aired on TV?” The answer also provided a little trivia by giving the name of the video. So, for those of you that are interested … “Video Killed the Radio Star” was the first video to be shown on MTV in the US at 12:01 am on August 1, 1981!

The Buggles are best known for this song which was debuted in 1979 and was Number One on the singes charts of sixteen countries! The Buggles were only together from 1977-1981, but they certainly produced a timeless classic during that short time. Enjoy a little 80s today! 🙂
