*** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnLsaCLdoMQ "How Does A Moment Last Forever?"]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcsaqIsX-yk "Evermore"]] from the [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast2017 2017]] LiveActionAdaptation. The former's end credits version is even sung by Music/CelineDion, as with the title song from the original.

* ''Film/LaLaLand'' has two, "City of Stars" and "Audition (The Fools Who Dream)", neither of which failed to be nominated for Oscars (the former had already won a Golden Globe by that time).

* Speaking of Christmas specials, the infamous ''WesternAnimation/TheRapsittieStreetKidsBelieveInSanta'' closes out with "[[https://youtu.be/4e-wuyjgDPQ?t=38m57s Through the Eyes of A Child]]", sung by Paige O'Hara and Peabo Bryson. It's a bit more upbeat than a lot of other examples, but it still falls under this. (It is also considered one of the best parts of an otherwise terrible special to boot.)

* Before the award was retired at the TurnOfTheMillennium[[note]]Though it was revived one last time in 2002[[/note]], the [[UsefulNotes/GoldenRaspberryAward The Razzies]] used to have a Worst Original Song category, [[GenreSavvy presumably in awareness of these type of songs]]. During its tenure, this led to three fascinating outcomes of songs being nominated for both an Oscar for Best Original Song ''and'' a Razzie for Worst Original Song:

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73cWfFEKAfE "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing"]] from ''Film/{{Armageddon}}''. Fascinatingly enough, it was nominated for a Oscar ''and'' for [[GoldenRaspberryAward a Razzie]], a feat that hasn't been repeated since. Whether the Razzie nomination was in hindsight of this trope or due to ''Armageddon'''s general unpopularity with critics (the film scored ''seven'' Razzie nominations and "won" Bruce Willis[[note]]who was nominated based on his performances in ''Armageddon'', ''Film/DeepRising'', ''[[UpToEleven and]]'' ''Film/TheSiege''[[/note]] a Worst Actor award) is up for debate. The song also stands as Music/{{Aerosmith}}'s [[BlackSheepHit sole #1 in the US]].
