It wasn’t so long ago when the studio recipe for a blockbuster called for a theme song by a current pop star and an accompanying tie-in video. I’m not talking about the earworm of “Let It Go” from Frozen, unless I missed Britney Spears singing it in front of a green screen while mechanically acting against movie scenes. I’m talking about Put-The-Name-Of-The-Movie-In-There-And-The-Actors-In-The-Music-Video-Or-At-Least-Movie-Clips here, kids. Just like these 10 flawless videos, in no real order:

1. MC Hammer - “Addams Family Groove” [close enough]

2. Will Smith - “Men In Black”

3. Ray Parker Jr. - “Ghostbusters”

4. Oingo Boingo - “Weird Science”

5. The OnedersWonders - “That Thing You Do”

6. Madonna - “Who’s That Girl?”

7. The Ramones - “Pet Sematary”

8. Will Smith - “Wild Wild West”

9. LL Cool J - “Deepest Bluest (Shark’s Fin)” [close enough]

10. Cherry Bombs - “Howard the Duck”
