(July 14-September 15, 1988) RadioVision International (1988)
Nickname: "The Face of Music"
Logo: On a space background with a purple starfield, the planet Earth flies in from the top-left corner and settles in the center, turning counter-clockwise and with red, orange, yellow, and green continents and a purple ocean. A guitar, keyboard, saxophone, and futuristic-looking drum (in that order) emerge from behind the Earth and fly offscreen. The same instruments, along with green, cyan, and purple straight and/or curved lines, zoom out to form a face. The guitar becomes a lightning bolt, and the other instruments become lines (or, in the case of the drum, a dot) as lightning strikes and a second lightning bolt flies in from the bottom-right corner, attaching itself to the face as "RADIO VISION VIDEO", in pink and with the words stacked on top of each other, zooms in.
Variant: For international distribution, "VIDEO" is replaced with "INTERNATIONAL".
FX/SFX: The Earth turning, the instruments and lines flying, the thunder, the lightning bolt, and the zooming words.
Music/Sounds: A catchy and futuristic synth rock tune.
Availability: Seen on The Prince's Trust Rock Concert, George Michael: Stand By Me, Pet Shop Boys: Television, WASP: Videos in the Raw, and Great White Videos. The international variant appeared on a Spanish airing of Showtime's Classic Rock & Roll Reunion.
Editor's Note: None.
