Roger Sanchez - Another Chance
A girl carrying a heart makes a journey on a New York RTS transit bus:

Saint Etienne - Action
The video is almost entirely composed of footage of trains (several numbers are seen for the benefit of train spotters), but a solitary unidentified London bus is seen crossing a bridge.

Santana and Michelle Branch - Game of Love
Has scenes aboard an American transit bus.

Alexei Sayle - Ullo John Gotta New Motor? Catchy single features Alexei annoying passengers aboard much filmed former London Transport RTW75 (KGK575), a Leyland Titan PD2:

Scarlett - Independent Love Song
Features at least one (possibly two) New York Apple Tours ex-London Transport DMS class Daimler Fleetline and a New York RTS transit bus.

S Club 7 - Reach
Apparently a cut-down school bus?

Shakira - Underneath Your Clothes
The video opens with her getting on her band's tour bus.

Shanks and Bigfoot - Sweet Like Chocolate
An animated chocolate doubledecker bus!

The Shuffle Demons - Spadina Bus
Canadian jazz fusion band had a massive 1986 hit with this song devoted to Toronto Transit Commission's Spadina Avenue bus service: '77B of the TTC'. The 77A is OK but they really want the 77B.

Sonique - Feels So Good
A Fishbowl and RTS pass several times.

The Smiths - Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before
Blink and you really will miss it - an unidentifiable GM Buses double-decker on Cromwell Road just peeking into frame for a few seconds before the end of the video.

Soul II Soul - Keep On Movin' London traffic scenes include a MCW Metrobus on route 24 and Leyland Titan T94 (CUL94V)

Spice Girls

Too Much
The single released to coincide with the Spiceworld movie features footage of the Spice Bus, a customised Bristol VRTSL3/Eastern Coachworks painted in Union Flag colours with lowered roof - played by former East Midland 172 (VTV172S):
(thanks Ken Lansdowne)

Video for the Spices' debut single culminates with them jumping on board a Nottingham Leyland Atlantean (thanks Ewood Eddie) - registration is BTVxxxT, which indicates a 1979 Leyland AN68A/1R with East Lancs body from the batch 647-61.
This is all you see of the rear registration plate!

Spiller (featuring Sophie Ellis-Bextor) - Groovejet
Filmed in Hong Kong, has a Hino single decker, also (thanks Bryce Pender) Dennis Darts and Volvo B7s.

Bruce Springsteen

Atlantic City
Monochrome video has many parked buses.

Human Touch
A streetcar passes in the dark.

Stereophonics - Pick a Part That's New
A pastiche of the original Italian Job movie has the boys playing around in Italian-registered Minis and playing their instruments apparently in the back of a Bedford VAL teetering on the edge of a mountain. One guesses they've used some footage from the film?

Rod Stewart - Every Beat of My Heart "Has trains (American) as well as many buses including a Glasgow Atlantean, Alexander Y type bodied Leopard in Scottish Bus colours, and near the end a London AEC Routemaster." (thanks Bryce Pender)

The Streets - Let's Push Things Forward
Opens with a passing London Volvo Olympian/Northern Counties.

The Style Council - Speak Like A Child
Chris Martin remembers a music video by the Style Council from the 1980s filmed on the top of an ex- Midland Red open-top BMMO D9, driving round a quiet village - Dave Windaybank confirms the track as 'Speak Like A Child', the video as 'What We Did On Our Holidays'.

Suede - Simon
Glimpse of an unidentified Bova.
