Duran Duran's "Too Much Information" (from the same album that produced "Come Undone" and "Ordinary World"). Lyric: 'Destroyed by MTV, I hate to bite the hand that feeds me..." Mentions of ABC and BBC as well.

This song is packed with references to radios, VCRs, stereos...but most interestingly it speaks directly to the OP...

Plug in my M.C.I. to exercise my brain
make records on my my own, can't go out in the rain


This refers to Sting plugging in his Music Center Inc. multitrack recorder to actually make a record.

Also, it references the Teenage Awards Music International concert from 1964 which, if you're a big enough Rolling Stones / James Brown fan you'll know something about.

Turn on my VCR, same one I've had for years
James Brown on the T.A.M.I. show, same tape I've had for years
