  • Heard It Through the Grapevine (Marvin Gaye) (Pros/Blake's 7)
  • True Believer (by Nicole V.)

Nancy Anderson

Patricia Lamb (PFL)

  • Angel Flyin' Too Close to the Ground (Willie Nelson) ("utilizes a simple editing technique to change scenes. A clip is edited in from a different scene, showing the ship's crew around the campfire sharing the news of a crewmate's death; this edit is deliberately timed so that a cut already in the episode to a close-up of the fire falls within the sequence -- the symbolism of the dying fire adding to the emotional effect. For several years, nearly all song videos used this simple kind of editing. It remains a common method, appropriate especially for slow songs where the lyrics are more striking than the rhythms." here)

Also:

There are also at least two fannish music videos of the Avon/Orac pairing (to "Automatic" and "Plastic Fantastic Lover;" also part of "Stuck with You," in a vid that pairs off the entire Scorpio crew: Dayna/Vila, Soolin/Tarrant, Avon/Orac), and I've seen one that hints at Vila/Orac. You know that scene in Ultraworld where Vila is teaching Orac jokes? He's leaning back on the couch, heaving with laughter, with Orac in the foreground? Imagine that to a soundtrack saying solemnly, "People are still having sex..." [3]
