August 10, 1985

On this day in 1985, ‘Money for Nothing’ by Dire Straits peaked at No.4 on the UK singles chart. Significant for its innovated music video and a cameo appearance by Sting singing the song’s falsetto introduction and the backing vocals during the chorus, “I want my MTV” who also co-wrote the song with Mark Knopfler. The video was also the first to be aired on MTV Europe when the network started on August 1, 1987.
