    I'd be prepared to put money on MTV not considering playing Carpenters videos even for a second back in 1981. They were totally the opposite of what MTV thought its demographic wanted at the time. They would have been more of a match for VH1's style, although that of course didn't appear until several years later.

    And considering that MTV’s first aired video was Video Killed The Radio Star...

    On MTV Europe it was Dire Straits’ Money For Nothing, which I always thought was appropriate as the song begins with the line “I want my MTV” :)

    However, the song didn’t exist till 1985.
