* In ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxHitTheRoad'', some of the carnival music has elements of this trope. [[https://youtu.be/yMjwdddpkzg Carnival of the Odd]] highlights how the carnival is a bit of a CrappyCarnival while still remaining somewhat pleasant, and [[https://youtu.be/t5n-oKOQOkE Hall of Oddities]] sets the mood for the carnival's FreakShow.

** "Circus Monster" by Luka, which features the slowed-down variety. The song itself is actually rather sad, and the circus music adds to that effect

* ''Series/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents2017'': In one scene of "The Wide Window: Part 2", as the Baudelaires, Mr. Poe, and a disguised Count Olaf are heading to a KitschyThemedRestaurant called "The Anxious Clown" so Olaf can trick Poe into handing the children into his care over brunch. As they drive to the restaurant, the camera lingers on a sign advertising it, with a picture of a SadClown, as creepy circus music plays in the background.

* In ''WebVideo/{{Brutalmoose}}'''s video on ''Bailey's Book House'', Ian pokes fun at the "Three-Letter Carnival", which, when he actually goes there, just looks like an empty field with a bunch of objects laying around. He points out that even the music, which is a circus-esque waltz tune, sounds kind of sad, and jokingly names the song "It's Time to Die, Children."

* Music/TheBand's eponymous theme to ''The Last Waltz'' is a calliope-accompanied funhouse tune in, yep, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin waltz time]]. Instead of creepy, though, the effect is wistful and elegiac. And mighty damned pretty!

* ''VideoGame/{{Blood}}'' uses this sort of music, titled ''Dark Carnival'' on the soundtrack, for its circus levels. The sounds of barkers and children throughout make it even creepier.
