10 Fictional Music Videos From TV

To be honest, these really are music videos, but they were recorded as plot points in TV shows by actors playing fictional characters. That doesn't mean they aren't good, but it means you (most likely) won't get to see the artist perform the songs on tour. However, you can find them on YouTube, and in syndication on the original TV shows they were made for. For example, you remember the song "Smelly Cat" from the series Friends.
Friend's Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) has a long list of occupations during the course of the show, including singer-songwriter for which she is best known for her least popular song, "Smelly Cat". Encouraged by a record producer, she records the song professionally as both a track and a music video, but her voice for both is overdubbed by another artist, E.G. Daily, who is less attractive but a much better singer. However Phoebe still appears in the video, along with three backing vocalists, a cast of homeless people, and a possessed (did you see its eyes?) cat.

This list gets an automatic fail for not including "One Track Lover" from the greatest faux-80's TV show ever, Darkplace.
