    Took me years to realize he was saying "Put the blame on VTR." Not VCR.

    I always found this to be a rather disturbing video when I was a kid.

    One of the most chilling lyrics ever, "I met your children. What did you tell them?"

    Two years before MTV debuted, I remember seeing this video between movie breaks and specials on HBO.

    I think of this song every time I'm sitting in front of my laptop trying to figure out how to get my synthesizer audio into the damn thing. I sometimes wonder if I'm too old for this technology.

    If you want to see how long ago the birth of MTV was, just get a look at the original VJs today (of course, JJ Jackson died years ago). That will depress you just a bit!

    This was when MTV was Music Television. Today despite of MTV 2 and MTV Classic plus some honest shows, MTV stands for Moron Television today.

    I wonder if this music video really ended up the last one on MTV. Since they don't play music videos anymore. Now they're just trash.
