Chess in music videos

Not only does chess turn up in movies or TV, but it also occasionally turns up in music videos. Of course there are really obvious examples like "One night in Bangkok" or "White Rabbit" , but have spotted the odd chess reference or chess motif in some completely unconnected songs. 
Today I realised that there was even a little bit of chess in a song I have always liked, Michael Penn's 1989 hit(?) "No Myth". A couple of the scenes have a chess set in them, although I am not entirely sure what the connection is with either the song or the narrative of the clip. However it does give me an excuse to link to it on this blog!

This is a new one that is out, showing that chess guys always get the girls.
