Let’s take a look at the rest of the Videopolis press kit. The record sleeve makes no mention of what’s on the record inside or who is the artist. The other side of the sleeve is identical to this side.
The record is self is gives no credit or mention of its content other than “Videopolis”. I figured this would be a mid ‘80’s band like the Banarama or something along those lines. Boy was I wrong; you have got to listen to this song. It’s a custom made “hit” just for Videopolis, “I’m going to the Top – Videopolis”. Is it just me or is this tune vaguely familiar? Did they play it at the park? Both sides of the record are the same song.

More press release information. This information is fascinating for future fashion designer historians; check out the cast member costume colors; pink, cantaloupe, turquoise, orchid and jasmine on pleated shirts with suspenders, and it just gets worse from there.
90 television monitors, what was the carbon footprint of that beast? Can you image how cool it would be with flat screens?

Lastly, a lonely unused Videopolis button.
I hope you enjoyed this fun look at Videopolis, I sure did.
