On this date in 2001, MTV celebrated its 20th Anniversary with a Top 100 videos of all time show. Wild Boys was featured at number 51.
Personally, I cannot believe that MTV started 33 years ago! That makes me feel incredibly old! I am sure that it goes without saying that MTV changed my life. While my little suburb didn’t get the channel right away in 1981, by the end of 1982, we did. I couldn’t get enough! I was glued to the TV screen. While I loved my Top 40 radio station, there was something about seeing the video clips that really hooked me, especially when it came to those videos by a certain British band.
Speaking of that band, I thought Wild Boys was an interesting choice. Of all their videos, is Wild Boys their best? They spent quite a lot on it and had grand plans with it and for it. Is this why it was chosen? Something to think about on this summer Friday!
