5. Smashing Pumpkins - 'Tonight Tonight'
The cover of the Smashing Pumpkins' 1995 double LP Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness reminded husband-and-wife directing team Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris of early silent films, and the stars and planets reminded them of the groundbreaking, 1902 Georges Méliès film A Trip to the Moon. "Tonight Tonight" is an amazing homage to the movie and early silent films in general. Dayton and Faris went on to direct 2006's Little Miss Sunshine.
