1984 MTV Music Video Awards

Not too long ago, the MTV Music Video Awards meant everything to an artist. Getting a “moonman” was really something special.  Do any of you remember the very first MTV VMA in 1984?  It was truly jaw dropping in terms of musical talent showcased.  Held at Radio City Music Hall in NYC, here were the nominations for Video of the Year.

Video of the Year
 
The Cars — "You Might Think" (Winner)
Herbie Hancock — "Rockit"
Michael Jackson — "Thriller"
Cyndi Lauper — "Girls Just Want to Have Fun"
The Police — "Every Breath You Take"

Now that's a powerhouse list.  Perhaps the most memorable moment of the night was an epic non-lip synced performance by Madonna singing "Like a Virgin".
