Music is one of the cornerstones of popular culture, and especially since the MTV era, which saw artists such as Michael Jackson using music videos to further promote their craft.
From music videos costing ridiculous amounts of money (we're looking at you again, Jacko), to those that are beyond bizarre, the years have been kind and cruel to us for a variety of videos that stand out.
Among those that remain favourable are those in which we see good girl images turn bad and the men of music show us just what the showbiz lifestyle is all about. These particular music videos create a list that is remembered from our youth to the present day, and are a stark reminder of the lengths some artists go to get their tunes seen - and heard - by the masses.
Prepare yourselves for good girls gone very bad, plenty of scantilybclad women cavorting, some dressing up and so much more as we trawl through the archives and bring to you the music videos that are quite simply the sexiest and the most unforgettable. Make sure you let us know if we've featured your favourites or if you think there is one particular video that we've shamefully missed from the years of outstanding artist showcases. Just don't go shaving your head and going Britney-crazy on us if we do forget your favourite!
15 Long Hot Summer - Girls Aloud
They may have gone their separate ways, but lest we forget the multiple talents of the gorgeous girls from Girls Aloud. They originally banded together via UK talent show, Popstars: The Rivals way back in 2002. Having won the hearts of the British public, the girl group soon found themselves shooting to the top of the charts on a regular basis and producing some rather memorable videos.
14 Buttons - The Pussycat Dolls
13 Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke feat T.I. & Pharrell
12 Lady Marmalade - Christina Aguilera, Pink, Mya & Lil' Kim
11 Lapdance - N.E.R.D.
10 Bad Intentions - Dr. Dre feat Knoc-Turnal
9 Hot In Herre - Nelly
8 Work It - Nelly feat Justin Timberlake
Another entry on the list for Nelly and this time around he's joined by Justin Timberlake as they storm the Playboy Mansion and show that it's not only Hugh Hefner who can have a good time with the Bunnies.
7 These Boots Are Made For Walkin' - Jessica Simpson
6 Beautiful Liar - Shakira feat Beyonce
5 Satisfaction - Benny Benassi
4 S&M - Rihanna
3 Chris Isaak - Wicked Game
2 I'm A Slave For You - Britney Spears
When Britney first burst onto the scene granting every schoolboys' dreams with a schoolgirl outfit unmatched by anyone, it wasn't until one very hot video that she became a true sex icon. Singing that she was a slave for us, Britney soon found her sexual side in a video not too dissimilar from one of Nelly's on our list, where things were hot and heavy in an apartment building. Britney, showing off her midriff and perfectly toned body, would breathe heavily, allow sweat to pour down her and allow men to get extremely close to her in a video that teenage boys and young men fell to their knees and thanked God for.
1 Call On Me - Eric Prydz
It was as if Eric Prydz knew that one day we would have to literally call on him to create a truly worthy music video that would become one of the most unforgettable of all time. While the gym may be a bit of a slog at times, filled with steroid-heavy posers and tiny-waisted women, Prydz proved that it certainly has its perks - especially if you're up for a class or two. Enter the "Call On Me" video, which used his signature tune as the backdrop for a rather revealing and, ahem, cheeky video that had millions immediately signing up for those aerobics classes and donning the sweatbands on a more regular basis.
