While playing A-ha today on the radio, I completely flashed back to the days of MTV and watching music videos.

Those were some great time weren’t they?  When MTV launched in in 1981, I remember as a kid, laying on the floor on my stomach, my face in my hands, staring at these amazing visual masterpieces.
