** In "Saturdays of Thunder," Homer takes a parenting quiz and is unable to answer any questions about Bart. When he calls the quizmakers to ask what he should do, they put him on hold; the song played is {{Harry Chapin}}'s "Cat's in the Cradle," about a father and son who never find the time to get to know each other. He promptly breaks down weeping while listening to it.

* In the film version of ''Film/SilentHill'', Rose wakes up after being scared to the point of passing out by screaming, crying, burning, [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090427134533/silent/images/a/a3/Greychildfilm.jpg BABIES.]] When she wakes up, a jukebox in the back just HAS to start playing, what else, "Ring of Fire" by JohnnyCash. [[spoiler: This also serves as some dark foreshadowing; we later learn, in flashback, that the entire plot was put into motion when a girl being executed by a cult ''literally'' "fell into a burning ring of fire", evacuating the town and [[HoistByHisOwnPetard trapping the cultists in a curse]].]]
