MTV still played videos in 1989, and they were very important promotional vehicles. In our interview with Taylor Dayne
, she explained: "I've taken risks with a lot of photographers, because there's a fashion aspect to it and a beauty aspect. David Kellogg, he was working for Playboy
and doing a lot of their Playboy video stuff. He did a video with a smaller artist, and I saw the beauty that he could create, and I saw the storyboard, and I said, 'I want to take a chance on this guy.' And he did 'Every Beat of My Heart.' When you look at that video, it is beautiful. Everything about it. And that guy went on to shoot Michael Jordan and Michael Jackson. You've got to take risks, you've got to take stabs, and that was a memorable one."
