** [[https://youtu.be/0pLCDnbBEk0 "God Help The Outcasts"]] is another example, even though it didn't get end credit billing (it did, however, get a RewrittenPopVersion on the OST courtesy of Bette Midler). The music got "Best Score" Golden Globe and Oscar nominations but no "Best Song" nods.

* A fantastic live-action example is Music/WhitneyHouston's cover of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9nPf7w7pDI I Will Always Love You]]" from ''Film/TheBodyguard''. It wasn't nominated for the Oscar because it was a cover of a Music/DollyParton song from the 1970s. Parton herself sang it in the movie version of ''The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas'' in 1982.
