Darude - Sandstorm
Chase sequence includes a blue/white articulated bus, also a green/cream tram. PJ confirms it was shot in Finland, probably Helsinki.
A Day Full of Songs (Music video tape)
Made in 1993, I've included this jolly tape (my children enjoyed it) of chidren's songs because it features preserved London Transport AEC Routemaster RM2198 (CUV198C) blinded for 19 to ighbury Barn. It arrives to pick up a group of children who then sing a song on the upper deck, although it's clearly not actually moving during the interior seqence. It's also notable because one of the singers providing the dubbed on soundtrack is the now-famous Sophie Ellis-Bextor, who also doubled as Unit Runner.
Deep Blue Something - Breakfast at Tiffany's
One hit wonders filmed in New York amid RTS transit buses. In one shot two Grayline tour buses are parked in the background: a Bristol VRTSL/Eastern Coachworks and a Bristol Lodekka/Eastern Coachworks. It may be the same VRTSL that is then seen from behind.
Deftones - Back to School
Opens with a blue and white transit bus dropping students at school.
Destiny's Child - Get On The Bus
More girls than buses, though:
Dexy's Midnight Runners - Geno
Early in the video there is a brief flash of the front of a West Midlands PTE Daimler Fleetline/MCW, one would speculate shot in Wolverhampton:
Features what appears to be a Volvo B12 possibly with Jonckheere double deck bodywork running the band from show to show.
Has a girl skating past London Transport RTL525 (KYY521) (thanks Bryce Pender) The driver's position is a little odd.
DJ Otzi - Hey Baby (World Cup Mix)
Depicts a group of England football fans on a trip on green/cream Thomas of West Ewell Leyland Tiger/Plaxton HIL4017 (previously UPE755X). Unusually for a Leyland Tiger, this coach converts to rocket power and flies into the sky at the end of the video. (thanks Ken Lansdowne for the ID)
Dream Academy - Life in a Northern Town
Geoff Cook reports "Apart from footage of Tyne and Wear Metro trams, a Tyne and Wear double decker (looked like a Metropolitan) passes across shot." There's also a silver transit bus in the background of footage of President John F Kennedy:
Jermaine Dupri featuring Ludacris - Welcome To Atlanta
Features 1973 Leyland Atlantean AN68/Alexander open topper HGD865L complete with fancy upholstery and gold hubcaps. This was new to Glasgow Corporation as LA659.
