Vision On - Music

Music

Despite its intended hearing-impaired audience, the show made extensive use of music for the benefit of hearing viewers watching the show. Notable themes included:

  • The opening theme was "Accroche-Toi, Caroline" by Caravelli (recorded by the Paris Studio Group).
  • The closing theme was "Java" in the versions recorded by Al Hirt and Bert Kaempfert
  • "The Gallery" – "Cavatina" originally, but "Left Bank Two" by Wayne Hill (recorded by The Noveltones) is best remembered for this sequence. When Take Hart started, "Left Bank Two" became the opening theme tune and Cavatina became the "Gallery" music for the show instead.
  • "The Burbles" theme "Goofy" by Cliff Johns.
  • "Humphrey the tortoise" theme "Merry Ocarina" by Pierre Arvay.
  • "Animated Clock" scene used "Gurney Slade" by Max Harris (the theme from the TV series The Strange World of Gurney Slade)

Famous quotes containing the word music:

    Thy remembrance, and repentance, and deep musings are not free
    From the music of two voices and the light of one sweet smile.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you—like music to the musician or Marxism to the Communist—or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    For the introduction of a new kind of music must be shunned as imperiling the whole state; since styles of music are never disturbed without affecting the most important political institutions.
    Plato (c. 427–347 B.C.)
