* The Music/BrianSetzer Orchestra album ''Wolfgang's Big Night Out'' contains swing versions of several recognizable classical works. Notably, ''Plead the Fifth'' has the oveture to Beethoven's ''5th Symphony'', ''For Lisa'' quotes ''Fur Elise'', the title track quotes Mozart's ''Eine Kleine Nachtmusik'', ''One More Night With You'' references Grieg's ''Hall of the Mountain King'' and ''Some River In Europe'' samples Strauss' ''Blue Danube''.

* [[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.
