* As part of the ''notoriously'' bad 1989 Oscar ceremony, a gaggle of youthful Hollywood up-and-comers performed a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78Pr-g9wvc8 production number]] featuring the original song "(I Want to Be) An Oscar Winner". (This was the same ceremony that gave the world an opening number that included a Rob Lowe-Snow White duet on "Proud Mary".)

Added DiffLines:

* Two songs from the ''Thomas and Friends'' movie ''WesternAnimation/TheGreatRace'':
** The opening song "Will You Won't You" features the engines pleading to Sir Topham Hatt upon wanting to be in the Great Railway Show.
** Thomas' song "Streamlining" (which has a strong feel to "Greased Lightning"), where Thomas decides to get himself streamlined, and draws the attention of everyone. It was all in his imagination, however.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Less can be More'' from ''WesternAnimation/TheReturnOfTheKing'' can be described as an "I ''don't'' Want" song. It's about how Samwise is happy with what he has, after he is tempted by the Ring with visions of power and authority.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DE5a80I8EU "Just Around the River Bend"]] from ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}'', possibly the vaguest I Want lyrics of all -- it boils down to "I want something, but I have no idea what that is. But I'm sure I want it."
*** Actually, the song is about just that - she wants that feeling of not knowing what's coming. She doesn't know what she wants, she just knows she wants it to come, and she wants it to be a surprise, unexpected, something to discover.

* In ''VideoGame/ChoiceOfRobots'', you can go on a date to see ''Theatre/{{Pippin}}''. Your date will talk about "Corner of the Sky" (noted above under Theater) and say that it's practically a rule that every musical have an IWantSong.
* ''VideoGame/EpicMickey2ThePowerOfTwo'' has "I'm Falling Apart".
* ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVIIThePrincelessBride'' opens with Rosella singing "I want to go to a land beyond dreams". And it would be a very short game if that didn't happen.

Added DiffLines:

* While only in the background, "Hyper Fangirl" from WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's review of ''Phantom Of The Opera''. It's twofold, as the execs want her to stay because they need the demographic, and she wants Critic still [[spoiler: despite being happy with Devil Boner]].
