For those who don’t know, I was a film major.  It was my dream to direct music videos.  I wasn’t even interested in feature films.  I thought I’d be happy doing just music videos.   Don’t get me wrong.  I love film and music.  With this countdown I combine both loves.

This MY TOP 10 features songs that either equaled or transcended the pop cultural significance of the films from whence they came.  It’s less about the movies and more about the songs.  I’m including 5 male and 5 female performers and alternating between them to keep things fair and balanced.  I’m starting off with a woman so a man can be on top. 

Just flipping the script from how I ran thangs with February’s MY TOP 10 (Sexiest Videos for those of you who don’t know) where a woman lead the pack.

mr4. Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mya, and P!nk  “Lady Marmalade” from Moulin Rouge!

This was the remake (of the Labelle classic) movie collabo that took all these ladies to the next level.  A great video that emulated the film with each vocalist getting equal screen and vocal time.  Though, Christina Aguilera does drip all over this joint with her sonic flourishes.  And, who doesn’t love the call-outs?  ‘Nuff said.  Now watch.
