** Rachel and Shelby singing their beautiful and slow rendition of..."[[Music/LadyGaga Poker Face]]". Nobody's sure what the meaning was changed to though and it's still considered an incredibly odd choice for [[spoiler: a girl and her surrogate mother]] to sing together.

* ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'' including acoustic renditions of four of it's five battle themes, three of which fit this trope, but special mention goes to the acoustic version of "Cyclone Effect", [[spoiler: as it is played over Philip's death in episode 48]].

* Used tongue-in-cheek in ''VideoGame/BarkleyShutUpAndJamGaiden'', which has a Vonda Shepard version of Sweet Georgia Brown play after [[spoiler: the defeat of Jordan]].
* ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'': E-102 Gamma's {{Leitmotif}} is a moderately paced, militaristic techno tune with a piano melody in it. when [[spoiler: Gamma is killed at the end of his story]] the leitmotif removes all but the piano melody, slows it down, and adds horns, making it into an extremely sad song.

** This has become such a [[AVeryBritishChristmas Christmas cliché]] that in 2013 Radio 4's "You and Yours" [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03kv1f1 ran a contest]] to suggest a song for the "Christmas advert treatment", receiving nearly 200 suggestions and going with Music/ScissorSisters "I Don't Feel Like Dancing". "The John Lewis version" is now British shorthand for a Softer and Slower Cover.

* ''Series/HappyDays'': Joanie and Chachi go on a local ''AmericanBandstand''-esque show, but the trend is now for folk music and J and C do classic 50s rock. What to do? Sing "Come Go With Me" v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y, using just a guitar rather than the full band.

** Speaking of ''Teenage Dream'', DarrenCriss in his concerts often performs a (different) slowed down version of the song that he arranged himself. The arrangement was given a wider exposure on ''Series/{{Glee}}''.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Music/ConfessionExecutiveCommitteeLoveSeries'' song "Right Now I'm in Love -triangle story-" serves as the softer and slower cover to the original "Right Now, I'm in Love". Both songs are about the singer experiencing heartbreak, but the -triangle story- version makes it sadder, considering that the singer is watching his crush fall in love with another boy from afar. Any other ''Love Series'' song doing a PerspectiveFlip doesn't change the tempo at all, making this particular one notable.
