* An [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQMD4XudxoE eerie trailer]] for ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' sure had this.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcVCP4A8Wng This gun violence PSA]] from 2003 used a ''supremely'' haunting one.

* Appears in-universe and to chilling effect (though there was more than one woman performing it) while the Harif army in ''Film/LawrenceOfArabia'' is setting out to cross the Nefud and attack Al-aquaba. The shot from the top of the cliff with the mourning women drowning out the stirring battle songs from below...

* In ''The Red Violin,'' a woman humming, called "Anna's Theme" on the soundtrack, introduces the titular violin. In a beautiful and subtle transition, the woman's hum becomes the sound of [[strike: Joshua Bell]] the violin.
** And if you pay attention, during the credits the violin's score returns -- and then fades back into Anna's humming.

* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' yet? Examples include "A Call to Arms" and "The Storm and the Dead". And, y'know, the start of the main theme. It also shows up in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqJ56yZLIaM Lords of Kobol]]",where it's combined with ThePowerOfRock to make, um... [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome holy crap]].

* ''Music/TenaciousD'' does a one-''man'' wail in "Tribute": "Nay, we are but men! Rock!"
** To not mention the various "Ah"s from "Master Exploder" here would be a crime. One of them, focused on a single target, is capable of ''blowing his brain out of his skull''.

* In ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'', you hear a wail whenever Aelita uses her Creativity power. (Some viewers mistake it for Aelita actually doing the singing, but she sometimes speaks, vocalizes, or sings her own note at the same time, showing it isn't the case.)
