#VMAs nostalgia: Hey, remember when MTV played music videos?

In advance of the MTV Video Music Awards show tonight, many old-timers on Twitter have a common reminiscence: Remember when music videos were actually the main feature of the now-teen-reality-show-clogged music network?
Those were the days.
I feel old… I remember when BET or MTV used to play music videos or music shows more than anything else.

So tonight is the MTV Music Awards. I didn't realize MTV even showed music videos any longer.
