* If the forgettable 1999 crime-comedy ''Desert Blue'' is remembered for anything today, it's because of its soundtrack included "The Frug", the debut single from Music/RiloKiley. The song's official music video even includes clips from the movie, but the film has become so obscure its left many Rilo Kiley fans scratching their heads as to why Music/CaseyAffleck (it was one of his first lead roles) and Creator/ChristinaRicci are in it.

** This one could also be an inversion of this trope combined with CoveredUp, since it was covered and used again as a theme for ''TheBluesBrothers'', and again as the soundtrack for ''SpyHunter'', which are where many people who recognize it as coming from a soundtrack will probably identify it as coming from.

* Music/TheBlackEyedPeas recorded a [[{{Bowdlerize}} clean]] version of their song "Let's Get Retarded", "Let's Get It Started", to be the image song for television coverage of the 2004 [[UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation NBA]] playoffs. After all was said and done on the court, it became one of the group's biggest hits; [[BleachedUnderpants did you even know there was a "dirty" version?]]

* "Theme From Film/NewYorkNewYork" by Liza Minelli (CoveredUp by Music/FrankSinatra), to the point most even omit the first two words. The movie was a famous flop that represented a career low-point for Creator/MartinScorsese, but Sinatra's version of the song from 1979 became such a standard that some people believe it's both original to him and that he [[NewerThanTheyThink recorded it much earlier than he actually did]] (reaching #32 on the US pop charts in 1979, it was Sinatra's final pop hit of his career). The song is not to be confused with a similarly named song that was featured in the film ''OnTheTown'' and parodied by ''TheSimpsons''.
