This week we continue to bring you seven cool songs that have featured some of the most unforgettable cars in their music videos. Only this time, they're all music videos by some of the most dazzling women out there. Check them out here:

1938 Chevrolet Master De Luxe Business Coupe

I drove all night by Cyndi Lauper

Cyndi Lauper’s I drove all night version begins with a car driving with its headlamps in the middle of the night on a road. The video featured a 1938 Chevrolet Master De Luxe Business Coupe with white side wall tires. Check out how Cyndi and the white side wall tires merge into one in the video followed by the road projected onto her naked back. Some really cool video editing there! The car’s grille and headlamps are prominently displayed in the video. You can’t help but wonder if Cyndi singing on the road barefeet in that red dress is what inspired Madonna’s Who’s that girl video in a similar black dress as a Jaguar chases her. Your thoughts...



1978 Chevrolet Camaro

What it feels like for a girl by Madonna

Madonna is being downright wicked in this video. Driving a 1978, yellow Chevrolet Camaro, she wreaks havoc in the city at night time. From taking on a group of men to mock shooting the cops with a water pistol to setting alight a gas station with her Zippo to totalling a red 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, she sure plays the d/evil incarnate, what with her room no also being 666. The video also features a 1974 Cadillac Coupe DeVille, a 1992, Ford Crown Victoria, a 1974 Ford Torino, and a 1983 Mercury Cougar. However, the way the red 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is totalled at the end with the help of some stunning VFX is totally worth a dekko.



1977 Lincoln Continental Mark V

Ironic by Alanis Morissette

Canadian-American singer, Alanis Morissette, drives a beautiful blue, 1977 Lincoln Continental Mark V, in her pop video Ironic from the album Jagged Little Pill which is not only one of the best albums, but also one of the best videos out there. It is almost as if she, in her different avatars, is driving the car wearing different coloured sweaters where she depicts different characters in the video. The car which is covered in snow is being driven with the windows rolled down, presumably as the heater has conked off. But watch this video not just for the scenic beauty and brilliant lyrics but also for the two-door car with beautiful tan-coloured leather seats and a tan-coloured leather wrapped steering which Alanis steers through the snow-filled streets in a wintry place, as she sings, eats and drinks coffee, in her car, before it breaks down on the highway.



Dodge Charger Daytona

Say you’ll be there by Spice Girls

Spice Girls’s song, Say you’ll be there, from their album, Spice, did very well in terms of climbing up the charts speedily. Their music video which was inspired by the movies, Faster Pussy Cat! Kill! Kill! and Pulp Fiction was shot in the Mojave desert, in California, and featured some really cool vehicles. The video ends with a man who is captured by the Spice Girls as they drive off with him tied to the roof of the car. From the replica of a Dodge Charger Daytona to a 1963 Lincoln Continental to a Chevrolet Corvair Rampside, this video sure had some kickass rides.



Mustang Fastback

Steve McQueen by Sheryl Crow

Sheryl Crow is one woman who really knows how to play the game right. Whether it is ensuring that she has the best lyrics,or whether it is about having the best tunes or the best music videos as compared to her contemporaries, she is always miles ahead. With this song and music video she pays homage of sorts to the legendary race car driver, actor, and car and bike collector, Steve McQueen, who raced some of the finest cars, both in real as well as reel life, with her own rendition of the song called Steve McQueen, from the album, C’mon, C’mon.  The video featured some racing scenes from his movies as well as some equally fast cars such as a classic Camaro, a Mustang Fastback and a Ford GT40. The song went on to become quite a hit, especially on the dance floors.  With lyrics such as “You won’t catch this freebird, I will be long gone,” you know that they truly exemplify the free spirits of not just Sheryl Crow but also of Steve McQueen. 



1957 Chevy Bel Air

That don’t impress me much by Shania Twain

That don’t impress me much by Canadian Country music icon, Shania Twain, was also shot in the Mojave Desert where she plays a hitchhiker in an animal print dress, showing off her worked out body through an exposed midriff. The song is from her album Come on over, and narrates the story of different suitors who fail to impress her. Her choice of words such as “Okay, so you’ve got a car” or “Okay, so you’re a rocket scientist,” or “Okay, so you’re Brad Pitt” but “That don’t impress me much” gave off such attitude that the song did become quite the rage back when it released. The video has some very good-looking men driving a 1957 Chevy Bel Air, there's. one on a Harley Davidson motorcycle, another comes calling in a Willys Army Jeep, another drives a tanker truck and yet another comes riding a really well-bred horse. It really is a sexy video which is all about horsepower, with the very sassy Shania doing what she does best. 



1974 Ford Mustang

Sleeping in my car by Roxette

The Swedish duo, Roxette, released Sleeping in my car from their album, Crash Boom Bang which went on to be a huge hit across several European, Asian and North American countries. Although there was a cavalcade of cars in the video, the car that featured most prominently in this video is the 1974 white Ford Mustang II. The video also had a VW Camper van in it! But with Marie Fredriksson, who was also Roxette's songwriter and Pianist, singing the song on the bonnet of the Mustang was what made it truly unforgettable.
