Early MTV-Made Bands/Artists… MTV Was Responsible For The Success Of… Pop Culture History.

Mr. Pop History – Everyone seems to know that Duran Duran was the first to exploit the possibilities of video, music and getting on MTV. So, for the first few years of MTV – who were the others in pop history? My list includes Madonna, Stray Cats, Culture Club, Janet Jackson, Paula Abdul and Milli Vanilli.

Early Duran Duran Videos… Pop. Culture. History.

Deanna R – Mr. Pop – It’s been established that the 1980′s pop band, Duran Duran – was a success largely, because of MTV.  Anything to add?

Mr. Pop History – Let’s face it – the music had to be good too! And it was. But, early Duran videos such as “Hungry Like the Wolf” and “Save A Prayer” used exotic locations and better production techniques – better then most music videos of the day. That created buzz.

Hope that helps.
