My MTV

January 26, 2011

Radio. I still listen to it, but mostly online nowadays. Love it because I’ll hear music that I otherwise wouldn’t listen too. So the other day I started reminiscing the 90s when i heard Lynden David Hall’s Sexy Cinderella on my favourite BBC 1xtra.

Remembering those late nights watching MTV Amour. I probably should have been asleep by the time it was on but fell asleep after it instead.

Good old days drowning into the sexy, silky, smooth sounds of those love songs. Amour was one of my favourite shows being a big MTV fan as a teen. After The Lick!

Every Wednesday night, 10p.m. I was glued. The Lick – Trevor Nelson, his voice, the sofa. And the music of course.

That’s what they used to do on MTV, play music videos, lots of them. They still do, don’t they? (on the extra channels I think like MTV2, MTV Dance, MTV Base)

Trevor Nelson, we salute you, then he got rid of the sofa and I started losing interest. I moved to the UK and his British accent wasn’t that special anymore.

I listened to him on the BBC 1xtra Breakfast Show but now he is only one good DJ among many other. Thanks CJ Beatz for bringing back some Old Skool on Sunday.

Amour and The Lick have both had a big impact in defining my taste for music and what I listen to today.

Another video often played on Amour and so great it had to be added to this post.

RIP Lynden David Hall and Lisa ‘Left-Eye’ Lopes.

    The Lick – nostalgia to the max! I had completely forgotten about that show…which now that I think about it, makes me kind of sad.
