"Part of this is shot on an open top bus, although very little of the bus can be seen. A passing RM is seen briefly in one shot." (thanks Ken Lansdowne):
"An unidentified red and blue coach is seen briefly at the very end of the video (blink and you miss it!)" (thanks Ken Lansdowne). Bodywork is by Plaxton:
The band is seen aboard and in front of preserved London Transport RTW75 (KGK575). Also seen are an LT AEC Routemaster, possibly RM1540 (540CLT), and a passing DMS-class Daimler Fleetline (thanks Ken Lansdowne):
Madonna - Ray of Light
Glimpse of the upper deck of a New York Apple Tours opentop DMS-type Daimler Fleetline:

This spoof on Madonna's 'Ray of Light' track features a cartoon 'Madonna' and a cartoon yellow school bus, also a cartoon Partridge Family bus!

Motorhead - God Save The Queen
The punk classic with a new twist, partly shot on a red opentopper touring London - it's an AEC Routemaster, registration KVS601 (?), apparently driven by Her Majesty herself. Several Big Bus Company opentoppers are also glimpsed:
Mull Historical Society - Watching Xanadu
A man dressed as a rabbit failes to catch Metroline Dennis Trident/Plaxton TP7 (T107KLD) on service 4 - there are views from behind and on board.

The band performs in the open air in London, while London Transport AEC Routemasters and Swifts pass in the background; in particular an RM on service 49 is seen.
