Video Killed The Radio Star: The Buggles – Video Killed The Radio Star


Well… with a feature called Video Killed The Radio Star, we had to get round to The Buggles song that inspired the name eventually.

The video for the 1979 song Video Called The Radio Star was directed by Australian Russell Mulcahy, who also directed Ultravox‘s landmark video for Vienna, among many other music videos, and the original Highlander movie.

It was also famously the first music video played on MTV when the music channel started broadcasting in the US in 1981 (the first video to be played on the UK MTV was Money For Nothing by Dire Straits)

Enjoy!
