Say Good-Bye to Your Free Time, Hello to a Time-Waster

Thanks, Paul. Introducing TV, which should now be your go-to work time-waster:

What's the first music video you remember? Was it The Buggles singing "Video Killed the Radio Star" the day MTV burst onto the airwaves? Was it Prince or Boy George, two androgenous [sic] icons of the mid-80s? Was it Kurt Cobain belting out "Smells Like Teen Spirit"? TV takes you back to the moment music turned visual...for you. We've collected videos for the 20 most popular songs of every week from the day MTV launched in 1981 to the day Napster shut down in 2001. Jump to any year for a walk through the pop culture experience.

For instance, say, what was one of the videos in the top ten twenty years ago this week?

"Shattered Dreams" by Johnny Hates Jazz!
