Fitting new hard drive, install options

I have got my new 500Gb hard drive for my MacBook Aluminium, ready to fit tonight.
Any preferences for transferring all my data.

My options are;

Clone old hard drive
Install Lion etc then use Migration assistant from my time machine
Install Lion etc, then manual copy of music, photos etc.

The Mac is a late 2009, so may have loads of old crap on the current install, so i am thinking maybe a fresh clean install.

Whats your thoughts?

cheers
