* {{Cats}} has [[OverlyLongName "Firefrorefiddle"]], a strange, specter-like entity, prancing about occasionally in the Gus the theatre cat song. It's not a literal ghost, but rather the memory of Gus's greatest role taking on a life of its own. * Anything [[spoiler: Gabe]] sings in ''NextToNormal''. Especially the ironically-named "I'm Alive".

* In Woody Allen's film {{Everyone Says I Love You}}, the ghost of the grandfather interrupts his own funeral to sing "Enjoy Yourself", accompanied by other ghosts who dance out of the funeral home. * The song "Grim, Grinning Ghosts" from the Disney attraction 'The Haunted Mansion' probably counts.

* ''Theatre/FiddlerOnTheRoof'' has a weird meta example, as the song "Tevye's Dream" is about the lead pretending to have had a dream in which an GhostSong occurred, which he is now describing to his wife.
