Stellar era MTV

February 27 2005

The assets of the near and glorious past many momentous events. But this is, above all, it's time to great music, fancy hairstyles, a variety of styles and crazy atmosphere. Blondie, Genesis, Europe, Duran Duran ... And, of course, has earned worldwide fame and recognition channel MTV, has incorporated this time of great discoveries and hopes.

Do you agree with it or not, but the television channel MTV has made a significant contribution to the music industry and contributed to the fate of many music clip. How, then, came the decision to launch such a successful project on cable TV and - this is a great question! - What the video clip was honored to open its history? We must admit that in the early 80's its infancy, this ambitious project, on this occasion was held intense discussion and has been broken a lot of copies.

MTV started broadcasting in the U.S., and then gradually formed a variety of local products throughout the world. Therefore, when asked to consider the debut feature of network broadcasting - for each district of the answer may be different. But we are talking about the very first song that ever was played on the waves of the channel. If you call Dire Straits, it will be very close, but still will not get to a point. Track "Money for nothing" Dire Straits was inspired by some time after the broadcast muzkanala when Mark Knopfler (guitar, leader of the group) went into a shop of electronic equipment. Seller grumbled at his life, saying how hard it was to exist. As stated in the song, he expressed approximately as follows: "Here it is: get your easy money and heifers without any worries." That is, he would want it that way, but in fact a lot of work. In fact, his comment was much more severe. Something like this: "Get your (note) money without labor, and (note) heifers without any (bill) cares." However, this option could generate candid remarks outrage purists its unruliness. Therefore, its somewhat "smoothed". After which the composition was destined to go to a great light on the wide screen. "Money for nothing" was really the first but not at the birth of the American MTV, and at the beginning of the broadcast MTV Europe.

And yet, who was a true "number one"? By law the exclusive first landmark of charts MTV took the song "Video Killed The Radio Star" ("Video killed the radio stars") band the Buggles. Largely symbolic name has not justified the prophetic words. On the contrary, due to the new word in the field of entertainment has increased sales of music production and has revived interest in the broadcasts. On the other hand, all have their own costs - the creation of musical works has become much more expensive.

It is also worth noting that the channel MTV has long outgrown itself and turned into a vacuous commercial project that exists on the waves of the modern mainstream. Thus, the hegemony erodes a substantial program, and in the forefront always goes their budget. On the other hand, television news is confident and playing the old stuff 80 - pores birthday full of music television.
