MTV @ 25

On August 1, 1981, MTV began broadcasting to the world. One of the first music videos played that day was Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around, the hit duet by Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty.

“I’d never done a video before. That was pre-Fleetwood Mac videos. If you watch it, you’ll see that the lip synching is particularly horrible because we’d never done it before. And it’s hysterical to watch. You see both of us look at each other like, what the…? What was that? And the film’s rolling. So anyway, of course it became this huge song because it was the first song off my first solo record. So really, it spun off my entire solo career. So, thank you Tom Petty for that!”

–Stevie Nicks, 2005
