** EWF also did the music for the forgettable film, ''That's The Way Of The World", starring Harvey Kietel as a record producer and featured the band as the new group he was producing. Their soundtrack is pretty much the only thing people remember of it.

* {{Music/Supercell}}'s soundtrack was the main attraction of ''Anime/GuiltyCrown'', in much the same way that Music/YukiKajiura was the main attraction of ''Anime/DotHackSign''. Another famous {{Vocaloid}} producer, livetune, was hired to write the [=OPs=] for ''Anime/DevilSurvivor2'' and the second season of ''LightNovel/{{Oreimo}}''. The latter is actually a double-example, written by livetune and performed by the pop idol duo [=ClariS=].

The PopStarComposer is a famous musical figure, known primarily for their work with, well, popular music, who is hired by a movie or video game studio to provide music and songs for their latest work. Think partially-or-completely washed-up rock stars and dueling divas. This is especially common for animated musicals--lyrics and music by a famous songwriter seems a good way to draw audiences. If they already like Songwriter X, then they'll probably like the movie! Or so one hopes. Despite what you might think, the songwriter in question doesn't necessarily have to be an alumnus of the "pop" music genre--they just have to be known for something ''besides'' movie scores.

* Speaking of [[SingerSongwriter Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam]], he supplied the music for ''Film/HaroldAndMaude''. The film included two new songs "If you Want to Sing Out, Sing Out" and "Don't Be Shy" and alternate versions of "Trouble", "On the Road to Find Out", "I Wish, I Wish", "Miles from Nowhere", "Tea for the Tillerman", "I Think I See the Light", and "Where Do the Children Play?". None of the new material made it onto the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_and_Maude#1972_soundtrack 1972 soundtrack]], which only used previously released recordings.
