* In the reprise of "Wie Du" ("Like You") in ''{{Elisabeth}}'', the title character asks her father's ghost for guidance. He's unable to help her, just like in the version of the song in which he was alive.

* In Theatre/{{Heathers}}, we have "Yo Girl," being sung by the ghosts of Heather Chandler, Ram Sweeney, and Kurt Kelly. The song starts off slowly but ominously, as the three mock Veronica for her horrible actions, proclaiming that "Now [Veronica is] a true Heather." It then turns into a a warning when JD breaks into Veronica's room, as the tempo increases greatly.

* {{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".
