In which pop music videos does chess play a role? Let's try and make a list.


Of course we should start with "One Night in Bangkok", originally a song from the musical Chess.



Marvol requested (in the comments) for Murray Head's version:



Streatham & Brixton Chess Club's directory of video clips notes that Madonna's clip of her song "Ray of Light", from the "Ray of Light" record (1998) has some flashes of a blitz game, at around 1.25. Alas, the board is wrongly set-up...



During this year's Corus Chess Tournament I learnt that about (for!?) Bobby Fischer there's a song by the British band iLiKETRAiNS, from their record Progress Reform (2006). It's called "A Rook House For Bobby".



Can you make this list longer than just three examples? If possible we will embed the videos you mention in the article.




Videos from the comments:

Madonna - "The Power Of Goodbye"



Blonde Redhead - "Melody"



Cat Stevens - "Father and son"



Ochestral Manoeuvres in the Dark - "Maid of Orleans"



Elton John - "Nikita"



Portishead - "Sour Times"



The Strokes - "You Only Live Once"



Wu-tang Clan - " Da Mystery of Chessboxin' "



T.I. - "What you know"



Roxette = "It must have been love"



Jan Smit - "Cupido"
