Goodwin's Theories - #6

There are often intertextual references to films, TV programmes, other music videos.

Here is an example of Geri Halliwell's 'It's Raining Men' video, incorporating the audition scene from the 1983 film Flashdance.

Another example is Madonna's 'Material Girl' music video which is inspired by Marilyn Monroe's 'Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend'.
