** In the short ''Back Alley Oproar'' Sylvester brings in an orange opera singing cat to take his place when plotting a grand scheme. After Elmer Fudd silences the cat by throwing a brick at him-just as he hits the high note-we hear this effect directly.

Ostensibly, this trope shouldn't be played straight anymore because most (if not all) music players these days are digital, and when you pull the plug on a digital player, the music just stops abruptly rather than just fading. Yet it persists due to TheCoconutEffect. And because (as suggested above) sometimes the music is diegetic and therefore wouldn't necessarily stop instantaneously.
