* "Runaway Baby" by Music/BrunoMars is incredibly popular for fast-paced trailers. An example that comes to mind is ''WesternAnimation/EscapeFromPlanetEarth'', which heavily featured the song in its promotional packaging.

So you're leaning back in your comfy theater chair, next to your significant other, munching on overpriced lobby snacks, when the [[ComingAttractions previews]] come on. The first opens with some dramatic InAWorld narration about the EarthThatWas...but wait a minute. That music sure sounds familiar. "[[Film/RequiemForADream Requiem for]] [[LordOfTheRings a Tower]]", again? The next trailer is for some run-of-the-mill PG-rated EddieMurphy ToiletHumor kiddy comedy. It's "I Feel Good" by James Brown! Again!

* As mentioned above, Music/JamesBrown's "I Feel Good" is the go-to song for inane kids' comedies based around ToiletHumor and EddieMurphy [[ActingForTwo playing all the characters]]. In fact, its status as a cliché was [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in ''Film/TropicThunder''.

* KT Tunstall's "Suddenly I See" was used in ''Literature/TheDevilWearsPrada'', and ever since has been used in various trailers for movies, TV, and commercials, usually in scenes where women are empowered. It was even parodied by ''Best Week Ever'' in 2008, which played it with scenes of women working in sweatshops.
