** Unlike other entries in this list, the lyrics got a little publicity in the UK when the full version of the song made it to #1 in the UK in 1980. Welsh alternative rock band ManicStreetPreachers did a cover of the song in 1992 and took it to #7.

* Many younger fans of the Harlem Globetrotters might not know that the "whistling" theme is an old jazz song (complete with lyrics) titled "Sweet Georgia Brown". Dixie Carter sang them once on ''DesigningWomen''

** When Courage found out, he was pissed, because it meant he made less on royalties since he had to now split it with Roddenberry. In fact, it's largely why he was replaced by Jerry Goldsmith when the movies were released.

* ''Series/TheNewlywedGame'' theme has the tune of "Summertime Guy", a song written by Chuck Barris. The backstory is, the song was just ''minutes'' from being sung on ''AmericanBandstand'', when it was called off due to Barris being an ABC employee, the same network the show was on. Eventually, Barris used an instrumental cover of the same song as the main theme to his Newlywed Game show.

* Partial Example: for the ''{{Transformers}}'' series Armada and Energon, instrumental versions of the TitleThemeTune for the original Transformers cartoon (which was also reworked into the theme for ''Robots in Disguise'' before these two, and for ''Cybertron'' after them, albeit with lyrics fairly close to the original version for those) were used. In this case, though, the lyrics were hardly discarded... The assumption seemed instead to be that the original theme was iconic enough that a reworked instrumental version would still bring the lyrics to mind.
** ''[[TransformersAnimated Animated]]'' sets the G1 lyrics to new music that could basically be called a remix of the original. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EE4YPN_MRyI&NR=1 This video]] demonstrates that they ''are'' fairly close.
*** I'd bump that to ''very'' close.
*** Of course, ''Animated'' then diverges into [[SecondVerseCurse a different trope]]...

* Crystal King had this version of the opening on one of their singles. You might know them from another famous anime theme song: "Ai wo Toridomose", the first opening to ''FistOfTheNorthStar''.
