* Zigzagged in one episode of ''WebVideo/JimAndYahtzeesRhymedownSpectacular'', Yahtzee described "[[GameplayAndStorylineSegregation Ludonarrative Dissonance]]" by alternating between saying a poem about a man who tried to flee life of crime and violence only to go broke and be forced to return, and singing a merry, excited tune about the same man enjoying living a life of crime and violence.

* In a round of One Song to the Tune of Another on radio comedy show ''Radio/ImSorryIHaventAClue'', in which Tony Hawks was given TheSmiths' "Girlfriend In a Coma" to sing to the tune of "Tiptoe Through the Tulips". He made the rendition as upbeat and bouncy as possible, the result being hilarious. (This was reprised by Tim Brooke-Taylor in the live stage show.)

* The ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' sketch "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfiLAcERNQ4 This Is Not a Feminist Song]]" has the season 41 female cast members, and Music/ArianaGrande, perform a stirring anthem about...the difficulty of writing a stirring anthem about feminism. [[spoiler:Fortunately, they decide in the last verse that by writing and singing the song without help from any men, they actually ''did'' make a feminist song.]]

A rather old trope. One of the archetypal examples involves an evil chief of police plotting to [[ScarpiaUltimatum blackmail a woman into having sex with him in order to save the man she loves]], then [[YouSaidYouWouldLetThemGo having the man killed anyway]], while all around him parishioners beg for God's mercy, all set to some of the most gorgeously beautiful music the composer ever [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3lPxwct2sk wrote]]. That's from Puccini's 1900 opera, ''{{Tosca}}''. Not the oldest by any means -- but one that can easily compete with most of the examples below.

** At one point in the film, guitarist Nigel Tufnel plays a short piano piece. It's a hauntingly beautiful excerpt from a trilogy he's composing in D-minor, "The saddest of all keys", inspired by his love of Mozart and Bach. The name of this melancholy tune? [[spoiler: Lick My Love Pump.]]
