Happy 30th Birthday, MTV!: The First 10 Music Videos Ever Played On MTV

3. “She Won’t Dance With Me”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rod Stewart[/lastfm]

It’s hard to believe that Rod Stewart was already 36-years-old in this third music video ever aired on MTV.  Considering Stewart practically looks the same as he did thirty years ago, the dude has definitely sipped from the fountain of youth.

British rock stars from that time really do age well. Although, in Stewart’s case, maybe it was all the baby making.

Let’s just say Stewart had no problem getting girls to “dance” with him.

    While watching the Pretenders video one cannot help but draw a parallel between a young Chrissy Hynde and Amy Winehouse. The video’s story arc and Ms Hynde’s waitress character look nearly mirror what would ultimately become the story of Ms Winehouse’s life and tragic and untimely death.

    That these songs are able to narrate recent events gives testimony to the timelessness of great music. Hopefully, too, it suspends some of our judgement and makes us realize, that, like the rest of us, maybe Ms Winehouse just wanted to feel “special”.
