Bedtime Music: Dire Straits - Money for Nothing

Speaking of influential music videos... How many times did I hear Money for Nothing in the summer of '85? It's hard to believe that the CGI in this video were considered groundbreaking at the time, isn't it?

hey jd, are you aware that when people go to your blog they get hit by a pop up ad?

at least i do.

Yeah, I get that too. It's called "Google AdSense." :) Click on the ads for me; I'll get more money. ;)

Money for nothing, chicks for free...aah, those were the days. Of bad hair and bandanas.

JDsg said...

I don't know so much about bandanas, but the bad hair, yeah, especially on women. I get a kick watching old movies from the mid to late 80s to see all the women with the big hair. :) And the other day, Milady and I saw a clip of Meg Ryan being interviewed, prolly from that same era, and her head looked so small in comparison to the huge shoulderpads she had in her jacket. ;)

oh. i thought your site is under alien attack or something.

anyway, this song was the first mtv that i ever came across.

i was wondering then what it was and why it was being shown so much on tv.
