* Delta Brony's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rOdSbTiI6U "Let The Rainbow Remind You(Rainbow Road Mix)"]] sets the vocals of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoBdr2JBjxs "Let The Rainbow Remind You"]] from the ''MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E26TwilightskingdomPart2 Season 4 finale]] to the instrumentation of ''MarioKartDoubleDash'''s [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHdEjH_7YY8 Rainbow Road]] theme. In fact, the ''Super Ponybeat: Ultimate Cross'' album consists almost entirely of crossovers between ''MLP'' songs and video game soundtracks.

* The theme from ''TotallySpies'' uses the exact same tune as Moonbaby's "Here We Go", just with different lyrics. Later episodes only used the instrumental of the song, maybe due to legal reasons.

* The BGM for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYSc_rYsYHk "Laughing Joke Numbnuts"]], the final stage of ''VideoGame/AngryVideoGameNerdAdventures'' sounds like an 8-bit style parody of Music/DragonForce, particularly "Through the Fire and the Flames". Likewise, the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WN1XiygKDUQ "Beat It and Eat It"]] BGM is a pastiche of the Nerd's theme and Culture Beat's 1990's dance hit "Mr. Vain", and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMhy6uuqHgI "Assholevania"]] is this to the ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' soundtracks.

* TheRutles, originally seen in a TV {{Mockumentary}}, pastiched Music/TheBeatles. In some cases the pastiche was almost too close for comfort, as in the case of "Get Up and Go", which was almost banned from the soundtrack CD because of its resemblance to "Get Back". Fortunately PaulMcCartney saw the joke, to the extent of performing the song himself.

* The MusicalEpisode of ''{{Nodwick}}'' consists of parody lyrics reflecting the goings-on, sung to the tunes of famous pop and rock songs (as explained by the author's foot notes). The author even has the [[VillainSong villain's number]] [[BreakingTheFourthWall break the fourth wall]] to explain that this is Fair Use and he's safe from lawsuits.

* ''Anime/MagicalShoppingArcadeAbenobashi'', parodying ''StarWars'', ''Franchise/IndianaJones'', and quite a few others.
* ''Manga/LuckyStar'', during the race scene, had a suspiciously ''InitialD'' sounding song , One time in episode 2 there was a ''Gun Buster'' parody, with a knockoff of the opening song, "Active Heart", [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Emq0Xf6zVDw seriously]] , and in episode 17 there was a parody of Cat's Eye using a knockoff of [[http://video.yahoo.com/watch/622059/2944980 the ending theme]] , but with Kagami as an extra.

* ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'' uses a bit of the melody from "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" in the recurring "Unlimited" leitmotif, which is basically Elphaba's theme. On the length of the snippet of melody: it's ''just'' enough to avoid copyright problems--the first seven notes (somewhere, over the rainbow!).
** It also uses the chords of "No One Mourns the Wicked" and its overture as a [[RecurringRiff recurring theme]], and intersperses it with "For Good", which itself incorporates the chord theme, in the finale ultimo.

* In ''TheMusicMan'', the melodies of "Goodnight, My Someone" and "Seventy Six Trombones" are pastiches of each other. This is made obvious by a reprise which switches between the two songs with every other line.
* Similarly, in LeonardBernstein's ''Mass'', the a capella chorale "Almighty Father" is based on a slower version of the "In nomine Patris" which precedes it.

* Supermode's "Tell Me Why" is a mashup of two of Bronski Beat's signature songs; "Smalltown Boy" and "Why".

* RichardCheese has made a career off of the discovery that profanity-filled metal and rap songs become intrinsically hilarious when played as extremely white-bread Lounge Music.
