** Also the Courier, who exists mainly to walk in with a dispatch from Washington and leave. Near the middle of the play he sings "Momma, Look Sharp," an absolutely gutwrenching song about the death of his friend at Lexington and Concord.

* Eddie the (Ex-)Delivery Boy from ''TheRockyHorrorPictureShow''. He shows up, sings one of the most memorable songs in the movie, and is promptly murdered with a pickaxe. He has one later song (titled "Eddie", in fact), but this verse is a voiceover intended to represent other characters reading a letter he wrote.

* PhantomOfTheParadise: The Juicy Fruits/ Beach Bums/ Undeads are rarely on screen, and only one of them has a speaking part, but they sing three of the major songs, "Goodbye, Eddie. Goodbye", "Upholstery" and "Somebody Super Like You", which was released as a single.
* The guy in ''SinginInTheRain'' who sings "Beautiful Girls" isn't even credited. (His name is Jimmy Thompson.)

* ''Film/AbsoluteBeginners'' has two cases of this, owing to the stature of the performers playing the roles. Vendice is just one of several antagonists in on an evil scheme, but since he's played by DavidBowie he gets the Bowie-penned song "That's Motivation" ''and'' a DisneyAcidSequence to go with it. Between that, writing/singing the TitleThemeTune for the film's credits, and simply being the biggest name in the cast, Bowie was billed ''third''! (As a bonus, while his character only sings a snatch of the old standard "Volare" in one scene, the soundtrack album includes a full performance of it.) Another minor character, Arthur (the hero's dad), gets the big number "Quiet Life" -- he's played by Ray Davies of The Kinks.

** Moses' mother only appears in the beginning, where she [[MosesInTheBullrushes puts him in the river]] while singing a lullaby (as part of the longer song "Deliver Us"). Despite the small part, they hired famed Israeli singer Ofra Haza to make sure it came out just right.

* "Moon-Faced, Starry-Eyed" from ''Theatre/StreetScene'', a highly catchy song-and-jitterbug number, is sung by a drunken young couple who make only one other very brief appearance.
