* In ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'', most of the background music heard during battles has has lyrics in the Inkling Language. Which is not actually a well-defined {{Conlang}}, but is made simply by recording people singing nonsense syllables and then running it through some audio distortion filters to give it a more wet and burbley sound befitting a squid-person.

Scatting[[note:]] a term which dates back to early jazz music, where the practice was especially prominent[[/note]] (sometimes referred to as 'vocalese') is vocalization that isn't lyrics. It is, for the most part, improvisation with wordless vocables, nonsense syllables, whistling, or even humming without words at all. It's sometimes used to mimic the sound of other instruments. Scatting gives the singer a chance to improvise his own melody and rhythm, basically creating the vocal equivalent to an instrumental solo. Rappers who do this during their songs are sometimes said to be "beat-boxing." In a-cappella bands the rhythm-focused form of this is referred to technically as "vocal percussion" or "mouth-drumming".

Added DiffLines:

* The song ''Thoughts Far Away'' from [[VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar Lunar Silver Star Story]] consists entirely of "la la las", to the point where many people only know it as [[FanNickname Luna's Lala Song]]. She sang a different song in the original Sega CD version, still consisting entirely of "la la la".
** Lucia also sings a lullaby consisting entirely of "la la la" in the remake of VideoGame/LunarEternalBlue.
