Logo: We see a starfield with stars shooting forward. Then, two small stars shoot out from opposite sides of the screen and collide with each other, forming a white sphere with clouds of gas swirling around it that zooms-up toward the screen. Some smaller white spheres also orbit around the larger one, and red 3D hearts shoot toward us. When the sphere disappears, we see the alternate Warner Bros. logo (in white) used from 1972-1984 ("The Big \\'"). The "W" has a world map printed on its side, and it revolves around and zooms toward us. When it zooms close enough, it turns to face us and zooms out while the words:

(in white)

zoom-in from the bottom of the screen and arrange themselves below the "W". Simultaneously, the screen fades to blue (or black).

  • For international distribution, "Vision International" would sometimes appear in place of "Music Vision".
  • A shorter version was seen on Oscar's Orchestra when it aired in US syndication.
  • A unique variant exists where for Australian tapes, where the logo already fades to the finished result, but with "WARNER VISION AUSTRALIA" under it.

FX/SFX: The sphere, the revolving "W", and the text zooming-out. Very nice animation.

Music/Sounds: A new age tune with a choir and a groovy 90's bass riff.

Music/Sounds Variant: The short version used a different sci-fi sounding tune with synth horns.

Availability: Uncommon. Used on most WMG artists' live videotapes and music video collections, as well as some concerts with various artists, such as Live Aid '04. The "Vision International'" variant can be found on some UK South Park videos and DVDs. The short variant can be spotted on a few Australian tapes.

Editor's Note: None.
