* "Corner of the Sky" from ''{{Pippin}}'' has the protagonist promises not to settle for the ordinary and to [[DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife search for a higher state of fulfillment]]. His big dreams are a wild goose chase, keeping him from the important things in life. The deranged attempt at a BrightReprise in the final scene leads to spectacular failure.

* "The Wizard and I" from ''Wicked'' - Elphaba wants to be accepted and praised in spite of her strange appearance (i.e. green skin).

* "The Wizard and I" from ''Wicked'' - Elphaba wants to be accepted and praised in spite of her strange appearance (i.e. green skin). Additionally, when the writers cut the song "For Good" from the musical, they specifically wrote "The Wizard and I" as "I Want" Song, realizing that what Elphaba wanted was the same desire as others in Oz: to meet the Wizard, be liked and respected by him, and have him solve her problems.

* A more materialistic version: Disney's HighSchoolMusical has Sharpay Evans first singing in ''High School Musical 2'' that she wants "Fabulous" (''I want more!/I want fabulous...'') then talking her brother Ryan into wanting everything ("I Want It All": ''I want it, I want it, want it: The fame and fortune and more...').
** One could argue that in HighSchoolMusical 3, Sharpay (and Whatshisname)'s I Want It All could qualify. Later in the film, the song is reprised by Whatshisname himself, Ryan, who seems to be well on his way to getting it all.

* Swedish GirlGroup/[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dansband dansband]] FACE-84 has a released a song called "Jag vill ha dig" ("I Want You"). Nothing noteworthy about that, you may say, until you consider their most famous song, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEPfdvHtDvo "Alla gamla x"]] (roughly, "All Those Old Ex-Boyfriends"), which was actually a candidate to represent Sweden in the 2008 EurovisionSongContest. This number starts as a generic BreakupSong but quickly (d)evolves into [[AntiLoveSong more devious]] [[SanitySlippageSong stages]]. Its [[LyricalDissonance lyrics include the lines]]:
