* [[GodIsLoveSongs Contemporary Christian music]] veteran David Meece recorded several songs that used classical songs as part of the basis or used snippets as an introduction; such as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDUMcEeNUr4 "This Time"]] (which used Music/FryderykChopin's "Revolutionary Etude" in C Minor for the introduction, bridge and ending) and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Isc7rCK7QW4 "Falling Down"]] (based on a Mozart sonata). In Meece's case, it owed somewhat due to his classical training at the Peabody Conservatory of Music.

Added DiffLines:

* Japanese Symphonic Power Metal/Neo-Classical Metal Band Galneryus incorporates several bits of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D Opus 35 in their song, "Angel Of Salvation". The first part of the intro is literally the same, note for note, played by a complete symphonic orchestra, and at several other points in the song, they draw so heavily on the Violin Concerto that "Angel Of Salvation" has been referred to as "basically an original arrangement of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D".
