* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nXfdx5X8t4 "Coalhouse's Soliloquy"]] from ''Literature/{{Ragtime}}'' for [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Coalhouse]]. And the last verse of "Success" for Tateh. And "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGOEx_X3YLM Your Daddy's Son]]" for Sarah. And "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fP4IJodNYQ8 Til We Reach That Day]]" for Coalhouse. AND "Justice" for, yes, Coalhouse. Bring tissues, it's that kind of show.

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtFOgfpZIyU Epiphany]]" from ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'' could fit into this. Also, towards the end of the play, Todd gets a BSOD moment after he [[spoiler:realizes that the Beggar Woman he has just killed was his beloved wife who he had killed the Judge and the Beadle to avenge]]. The short reprise of 'The Barber and His Wife' could also count as a BSODSong.

* Frank N. Furter gets "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1Xn-DWHuuM Going Home]]" toward the end of the ''Film/RockyHorrorPictureShow''. The song illustrates just how off his rocker he is at that point. He even hallucinates an adoring, sympathetic audience is hanging on his every note.

* Purcell's ''Dido and Aeneas'' has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Qgg1IZWMdw&feature=bf_next&list=FLU-PdgupwMILeBP39Jba2mA&lf=mh_lolz When I Am Laid in Earth]]. Aeneas has just left Dido, and, having been shot by Cupid's arrows, she cannot bear the thought of living without him. This song is her BSOD-ing to her handmaiden Belinda before she kills herself.

* In ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', ''It's Quiet Uptown'' is a song all about Alexander and Eliza slowly trying to pick up the pieces and mourn together after [[spoiler:their son Phillip's death]]. More immediately, ''Burn'' narrates Eliza's furiously betrayed reaction to The Reynolds Pamphlet, and the last part of ''The World Was Wide Enough'' is about Burr's stunned, broken reaction to Hamilton's death at his hands:
-->When Alexander aimed at the sky, he may have been the first one to die\\
But I'm the one who paid for it\\
I survived but I paid for it.

* "Live, Laugh, Love" from Sondheim's ''Follies'' is a perfect example of this. It begins as a revival song that Ben is performing, but over the course of performing the song, he realizes his life has fallen apart. The music descends into chaos and the background singers and orchestra become strident, as Ben experiences a nervous breakdown on the stage.
