** Happens during ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' TreehouseOfHorror story "It's the Grand Pumpkin, Milhouse". The school dance scene has music licensed from the ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} HalloweenSpecial ''ItsTheGreatPumpkinCharlieBrown'', which it parodies, but Milhouse rushes in to shut off the iPod-dock stereo that's playing it.

* In ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'', Arthur Dent's first steps on an alien world are accompanied by haunting, ethereal background music... which turns out to be the RobotBuddy, Marvin, humming. Later in the same episode, a self-consciously inspirational speech from Zaphod Beeblebrox is nearly drowned out by a swelling, triumphal fanfare: Marvin again. (The fanfare was ''Thus Spake Zarathustra'', best known from ''TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''. The earlier ethereal bit was a Pink Floyd instrumental -- which caused copyright issues, and the joke was cut from the home audio release and most of the later versions of the series.)

* An older example will be the 1944 FilmNoir, ''DoubleIndemnity''. Fittingly dramatic music is played in the scene, with the assumption by the audience that this is background music, until Walter Neff complains to the neighbor that the music is too loud.
