* [[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/FryderikChopin'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.
