* ''Series/PowerRangersZeo'' used a [[RearrangeTheSong remix]] of the ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' theme tune with new lyrics. ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' uses another remix, which adds the line "Rangers Together Samurai Forever", and removes all references to "Mighty Morphin'". The seasons in between are not an example of this trope, as they had completely new theme tunes.

The seasons in between are not same is done with the next season, ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'', except replacing "Samurai" with "Megaforce". ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'' diverges further, as it uses an example of this trope, as they had completely entirely new theme tunes.arrangement for the verses but only a slightly-remixed chorus.

* ''VideoGame/KarmaflowTheRockOperaVideoGame'' features one of these as a puzzle where activating instruments adds them to the background music. Another is during [[CounterpointDuet final duets]]; the game is structured in a way to allow you to pick one of the singers, changing lyrics and melody based on your choice.

* E from {{Eels}} seems to relish dramatically different live arrangements for older songs - for instance, the ''Daisies Of The Galaxy'' version of "I Like Birds" is laid-back and based around acoustic guitar, but at some point they started doing a much faster, noisier electric version live, and have kept playing it that way every since. During the Eels With Strings tours even songs that were originally fast paced rock or upbeat pop were played slower and more stripped down (and of course, with a string quartet).

* ''Series/KnotsLanding'' used a different arrangement of its main theme each season, but several times, the instrumentation was completely overhauled. In fact, the one constant, besides the main melody, was the saxophone as the lead instrument. The early seasons, like parent series ''Dallas', used brass-heavy disco arrangements. In 1983, a jazzier resetting of the theme debuted and was subsequently rearranged each season thereafter. Then, seasons 9 and 10 used slower, more sensual arrangements layered with strings and flutes. Seasons 11, 12, and 13 used a more upbeat arrangement that kept some of the sensuality of the previous version. For the final season, a new arrangement was made that returned to the basic format of those used in the mid-1980s.

* ''Series/Dallas'' had a legendary theme song that was originally big and brassy with a four-on-the-floor disco beat. Later arrangements were more country-influenced.

* This trope was par for the course for many American daytime soap operas in the early 1970s, when organ-based music was gradually phased out in favor of more orchestral pieces. Over the course of a two-year period (1973-1975), many of these shows had their organ-based theme tunes rearranged for a full orchestra. The most prominent examples include ''Series/AnotherWorld'', ''Series/AsTheWorldTurns'', and ''Series/GuidingLight''.

* ''Series/AllMyChildren'', being a LongRunner, did this with three completely different theme songs. ** The original theme was a string-heavy orchestral piece used from the soap's 1970 premiere until the last week of 1989. The first arrangement was quite gentle, with flute and guitar. This was replaced with a grander, faster-paced arrangement in 1971. Finally, in 1976, arguably the most well-known version of the tune debuted and was somewhat of a combination of the first two. ** The second theme premiered for the soap's 20th anniversary in January 1990 and was a completely new saxophone-and-guitar rock tune. It was replaced with a new theme after four years but was brought back in a more intimate arrangement in 2002 with synthesized strings. Two years later, it was rearranged again to feature electric guitar. ** The third theme, used from 1995 to 2002, saw no less than three arrangements.
