* "Young, Wild and Free" was a hit in 2012 for SnoopDogg, Wiz Khalifa and BrunoMars. The film it was recorded for, ''Mac and Devin Go to High School'', limped to a direct to DVD release and was immediately forgotten. This is despite the fact that Snoop and Wiz rap the song ''in character'' as their characters from ''Mac and Devin''.

* ''Never on Sunday'', a 1961 Greek romantic comedy, mostly survives in the public consciousness thanks to its theme song of the same name, which saw a lot of covers in the 1960's, most notably by The Chordettes (also known for "Mr. Sandman" and "Lollipop"), whose version was their last major hit.

* The 1946 Disney live action/cartoon film ''Disney/SongOfTheSouth'' (based on the Reconstruction-era ''Uncle Remus'' stories) has never been released on DVD, due to certain scenes in the film being... ''problematic'' when viewed today. As a result, not many people could identify it as the source of "Zip-a-Dee Doo-Dah", even though it won the Oscar for Best Song.

* Extremely popular at the time of its release, nowadays ''Film/LoveStory'' is not so much forgotten as disparaged - except for the instrumental theme composed by Francis Lai (subsequently covered as a song "Where Do I Begin?"). He won an Oscar for it.

* Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass, an instrumental group who were one of the biggest non-rock acts of the 1960s, recorded the Burt Bacharach[=/=]Hal David tune "This Guy's In Love With You" for their 1968 TV special ''The Beat of the Brass''. The song was [[BlackSheepHit different from the group's usual music]] because Alpert sang on the song himself. The day after the special aired, CBS was inundated with phone calls from listeners inquiring where to buy the song. Alpert's label (A&M, which he also co-owned) rush-released the single and two months later, it was the number one song in America. The tune remains a popular love song, while the Tijuana Brass special remains completely out of print and obscure.
