The first music video I ever made was for a song called “Headphone Nation.” At the time my girlfriend and I were living in New York and we created it just off the top of our heads. It was very spur of the moment and had no real meaning behind it, but I remember it being fun to film.
In this article, I will talk about “First Music Video”. Let’s start.
Talkies, Soundies, And Shorts Before Mtv
While the history of American music videos is a relatively short one, it’s not quite as simple as MTV coming along and changing everything. The very first music video was produced by the BBC in 1954 as part of a program called “Look At Life,” but it wasn’t until more than 10 years later that MTV was launched.

The BBC produced a number of other music videos in the 1960s and ’70s, including “A Day In The Life” by The Beatles and “We’re All Going Sailing” by Cat Stevens. But these were essentially promotional films for new singles rather than stand-alone pieces of art.
It wasn’t until 1973 that the term “music video” came into use — thanks to Australia’s Channel 0 (now Network Ten). A year later, the first full-fledged music video channel in the world launched on cable TV: VH1: Video Hits One (now simply VH1). It was followed by other video channels like MuchMusic (Canada), MuchMoreMusic (Can) and MTV Europe (Europe).
Promotional Clips Before Mtv
Promotional Clips Before MTV
In the early days of music television, artists had to come up with innovative ways to promote their new singles. It wasn’t enough to simply release a video on MTV – they needed something more.
The first promotional clips were used by American record labels in the 1970s and 1980s as a way to promote their new albums. They were often filmed live at shows or in front of small cameras and were shown on television programmes such as Top Of The Pops or Soul Train.
The first promotional clip was released by Blondie in 1978 for the song Heart Of Glass, which featured Debbie Harry singing in front of a plain backdrop while holding an umbrella. The video was filmed by Alan Lomax III, who later went on to direct films including Purple Rain (1984).
Before MTV, there was the “Rock and Roll” era, when music videos were a way to sell records and promote tours. The first video played on MTV was “Video Killed the Radio Star,” by the Buggles.
The first music video shown on MTV was actually “You Better Run,” by Pat Benatar. It was shown during the station’s first week of broadcasting in 1981. The song had been released as a single three years earlier, but no one had thought to make a video for it until then.
MTV’s debut was so successful that CBS attempted to copy it with their own channel, VH1 (which stands for “video hits one”). But VH1 never caught on like MTV did because its original programming wasn’t as good; it focused more on classic rock bands rather than contemporary ones like MTV did.
How Mtv Revolutionized Music Videos
MTV revolutionized the music video industry. It was one of the first channels to air videos in a regular format, and it introduced many artists to a wider audience.
MTV was founded by Bob Pittman and Warner-Amex Satellite Entertainment Company, which later merged with Time Inc. to become MTV Networks. The channel began broadcasting on August 1, 1981, and its first video was “Video Killed the Radio Star” by The Buggles.
MTV quickly became popular for its original programming. In addition to music videos, shows such as Beavis and Butt-Head and Liquid Television were produced for the network’s audience of young adults in the early 1990s.
The late 1980s saw another shift in emphasis for MTV when its focus shifted from being primarily music-oriented to being more youth culture-focused overall. This shift was marked by an increase in reality television programming on the channel, such as The Real World (1992) and Road Rules (1995), as well as an increasing number of non-music related programs that aired during prime time hours such as Singled Out (1995).
Music Videos Then And Now
Music videos are a big part of the modern pop landscape. They’re also a big part of pop culture. The video for Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” is the most famous music video ever made, and it’s been viewed more than 200 million times on YouTube.
But what about the earliest music videos? How did we get here from there?
In the late 1960s, television was still mostly black-and-white and grainy, and it was just getting started with color broadcasts. This was before MTV or any other 24/7 music video channel existed. If you wanted to see music videos, you had to watch them on TV at night or during the day on weekends — maybe even on a local station in your town or city.
The first known music video was made by Bruce Gowers for The Beatles’ 1967 film Magical Mystery Tour. It shows the band driving around in an open-top bus while playing “I Am The Walrus.” The Beatles’ film was never released in theatres because it wasn’t very good (or so they say). But its accompanying album sold pretty well (over 6 million copies worldwide) and that helped make it one of their biggest sellers ever.
The first music video was “Dancing in the Street” by David Bowie and Mick Jagger, released in 1985. The first music video to air on MTV was “Video Killed the Radio Star,” by The Buggles.
The first music video to be played on MTV was “Video Killed the Radio Star,” by The Buggles. It premiered on August 1, 1981 in the United States, and it was also the first song to ever play on MTV.
MTV launched as “Music Television” on August 1, 1981 at 7pm Eastern time. It was originally called “The First Video Music Awards” or VMAs for short, but when they added more categories, they changed it to MTV VMA’s.
