I will now provide a play by play of the 1987 MTV awards

Remember when MTV used to show music videos? Those were good times. I found a VHS tape marked "1987 MTV Awards" and will now provide you a written commentary. I had to fast forward through a first run airing of Cheers and Night Court. It then came on at the very end of Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over" followed by U2's "Where the Streets Have No Name" which was marked "exclusive". Mark Goodman told me to stay tuned for an airing of Michael Jackson's "Bad"... all 16 minutes which was proceeded by an ad full of 1-900 phone numbers to vote for the viewers choice. Oh good, the song just started. Sha-mon.
