It might be cold outside but we’re done complaining. Instead, we’re heating things up with our favorite desert set music videos. The desert is about a clichéd a place as any to set a music video, and while the desert was super big in the videos of the 90s, it’s still favored for the cheesier, more epic videos of today (see: Britney Spears“Work Bitch” AND “Not A Girl But Not Yet A Woman”).

Generally coupled with women, girl power, and ridiculous outfits —as you’ll see, the Spice Girls iconic “Say You’ll Be There” delivers on all three of these!— the desert gives music videos the treatment they deserve — utterly silly melodrama, which is the crux of any good music video.
