* In ''Being a Green Mother'' (the fifth book in Piers Anthony's ''Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality'' series), the character who becomes Gaea discovers she can control nature with a particular song. (In the next book, another character learns that same song for... ''other'' purposes.)

She never understood the meaning of it except that her teacher used to sing it to her all the time. [[spoiler:At the end of the movie, she realizes it's the ultimate magic she sought for so long - her teacher had given it to her and she was so blinded by her desire for power that she never realized she already had it. She ends up using it to empower the 11 teams of Cures]].

** ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'' has this (called "Song Energy" in series) as a fundamental part of the premise. The alien antagonists ("Protodeviln") experience literal pain when exposed to music, due to the protagonist's "Anima Spiritia". Sure, it's not genuinely magical, but you wouldn't know that from the laser speaker pods and light show Fire Bomber puts on.

** ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'' has this (called "Song Energy" in series) as a fundamental part of the premise. The alien [[OurVampiresAreDifferent life energy draining]] antagonists ("Protodeviln") experience literal pain when exposed to music, due to the protagonist's "Anima Spiritia". Sure, it's not genuinely magical, but you wouldn't know that from the laser speaker pods and light show Fire Bomber puts on. And the ultimate resolution of this is that, right at the last moment before the leader of said aliens [[PowerIncontinence uncontrolably]] sucks out the life of the entire galaxy, the protagonist sings at them so hard that the species learns that they can generate their own life energy by singing, then decide to move on to another dimension.

* There is also the story of the ''Marine Electric'', where one sailor clinged on for bare life off the coast of Canada. When he was about to give in, the refrain of ''The Mary Ellen Carter'' by Stan Rogers began to chime in his head: "Rise again, rise again". [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mary_Ellen_Carter#Connection_to_the_sinking_of_the_Marine_Electric This gave him the strength to carry on until rescue arrived]].
