MTV played a huge part in the top summer songs of the 1980s. The cable station debuted on August 1, 1981 and many of the top summer songs of this decade were featured heavily by the Music Television Network. "Bette Davis Eyes" by Kim Carnes, "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor, "Every Breath You Take" by The Police, "When Doves Cry" by Prince, "Shout" by Tears For Fears", and the remaining top summer hits of the 80s were all on heavy rotation at MTV.
If you grew up during the 80s you can probably still see the videos in your head every time you hear one of these songs.
