My Old MTV!

Hi Everyone, Happy Music Monday, Yes! I want my old MTV after hearing the classic Dire Straits song the other day on the radio. I remember it like it was yesterday, at the age of 18 my hometown was getting cable, and when one of my friends was the first to get it, all of my friends and I ran over to their house to watch Music Videos Wow! It was just awesome. I remember the premier of Micheal Jackson's Thriller! Now through the years it has become more of a reality channel, like who needs more reality in their life?? TV is suppose to be the plug in drug. MTV is suppose to be Music Videos!! I don't even know if they do have all videos anymore on one of their 4 or 5 channels, I could be wrong, that's how long it has been since I have even checked out their channels. Then this morning, as I was thinking of doing this post for Music Monday, wouldn't you know what was on Good Morning America, the clip below of teen Mom's fighting it out! Well I'm just glad I got to enjoy it when it was brand new, old is gold :) I had to add one of my very favorite songs and video from that time too, Cruel Summer. It reminds me of the summer I got out of High School and was trying to find my way, while I watched some of my friends go off to college and move away. It was a sad and kinda lonely time. I felt stuck in my hometown, with no guidance or direction, Mom was still in and out of Mental Institutions then. If I only knew then what I know now!! I would have guided myself to a better future. I'm sure most of you can relate to feeling like that. Maybe I should call this post Melancholy Monday LOL! I hope you enjoy the classics I picked for today.
Thanks for visiting my blog,
Love ya,
Janet :)
