* Creator/RainerWernerFassbinder's adaptation of ''Literature/BerlinAlexanderplatz'' used this for dramatic effect to emphasize the WhamEpisode nature of the Epilogue.

This particular practice has been somewhat all-over-the-place since it first began. Earlier, {{Trope Mak|er}}ing examples sprouted up in TheEighties with examples such as David Bowie doing the songs for ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' and Queen doing a lot of the music for movies such as ''Film/FlashGordon'' and ''Film/{{Highlander}}'' (they did ''not'' do all the music for these films, however, as admirers of Howard Blake and Music/MichaelKamen will attest). But animated movies in TheNineties really [[TropeCodifier codified]] this trope, with examples such as Music/EltonJohn doing the songs for ''Disney/TheLionKing.'' In particular, animated movies with this kind of musical casting are prone to {{Award Bait Song}}s and composers/performers who used to be kind of cool once.

* Several Creator/CartoonNetwork series, including ''WesternAnimation/Ben10'', ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', and ''HiHiPuffyAmiYumi'' featured music by Andy Sturmer, former frontman of early-90s power-pop band Jellyfish. Notably, the latter featured an actual cover of Jellyfish's "Joining A Fan Club". Sturmer's an unusual example though - nowadays he's almost as well known as one of PuffyAmiYumi's songwriter/producers as he is for his former band.
