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?

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.

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.
