Video Killed The Radio Star

This song was by The Buggles and was the first ever music video that MTV aired when it launced at midnight on August 1, 1981.  "Video Killed The Radio Star" marked the beginning of a new era in the music industry with the debut of TV as a major channel for providing such entertainment.  A video of this song is available on YouTube. 
 
Video Killed The Radio Star
The Buggles
I heard you on the wireless back in Fifty Two
Lying awake intent at tuning in on you.
If I was young it didn’t stop you coming through.
 
Oh-a oh
 
They took the credit for your second symphony.
Rewritten by machine and new technology,
and now I understand the problems you can see.
 
Oh-a oh
 
I met your children
 
Oh-a oh
 
What did you tell them?
 
Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.
 
Pictures came and broke your heart.
 
Oh-a-a-a oh
 
And now we meet in an abandoned studio.
We hear the playback and it seems so long ago.
And you remember the jingles used to go.
 
Oh-a oh
 
You were the first one.
 
Oh-a oh
 
You were the last one.
 
Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.
 
In my mind and in my car, we can’t rewind we’ve gone to far
Oh-a-aho oh,
Oh-a-aho oh
 
Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.
 
In my mind and in my car, we can’t rewind we’ve gone to far.
Pictures came and broke your heart, put the blame on VTR.
 
You are a radio star.
You are a radio star.
 
Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.
 
Video killed the radio star. You are a radio star.
