The music video promoting a blockbuster movie is a dying art. The 90s was full of this type of thing: big name performers contributing a song to a movie's soundtrack and filming a video to plug it. The song wouldn't necessarily feature in the movie (other than during the end credits) but there is a growing nostalgia for this marriage between musical artists and movie marketing.

Coolio: Gangsta's Paradise - Dangerous Minds (1995)

Saw this movie on my very first date back in '95. The tulmultuous lives of these tough LA kids was a world away from ours, but the Coolio song was incredibly popular and is probably the only rap song to which I know the lyrics.
