* The mention of "Denny Mclaren" in DonMclean's cover version of "The Mountains of Mourne" is this, with a bit of stretching to fit the song's metre; in the original lyrics, it's "Peter O'Loughlin".

-->With Craig David all over your ''(boink sound effect)''
* Music/SClub7 almost invoked this with both ''S Club Party'' and ''Don't Stop Movin''' (the latter having "Don't stop movin' to the S Club beat").

* Partial example in "My Town" by Montgomery Gentry. Near the end of the song, Gentry did this twice: Eddie Montgomery sings "A few close friends, Charlie, Troy, and me" in "All Night Long", a duet with Charlie Daniels, and in "My Town", he sings "Maybe later on, me and ol' T-Roy will show you 'round our town", in reference town". "Troy" or "T-Roy" obviously refers to Troy Gentry, the other half of the duo.
