** If you don't have access to custom soundtracks, you can always find yourself in an intense police chase while MusicAFlockOfSeagulls' "I Ran" plays in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity''. And then sometimes, it may end up being [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9lEr53rXaI a very good day]] in this department.

** Webvideo/AtopTheFourthWall usually has the credits (and usually, the opening title) with a song invoking the comic or the episode. "ComicBook/OneMoreDay" warrants [[LesMiserables "One Day More"]], the questionable science of ''Comicbook/{{Marville}}'' leads to [[WeirdAlYankovic "Everything You Know It's Wrong"]], and ''Comicbook/TheThingFromAnotherWorld'' has among others "Film/ThatThingYouDo".

* Played with in Creator/ValLewton's ''I Walked with a Zombie''. Wesley and Betsy sit down at a cafe table and almost immediately hear a ballad being sung about the brothers' feud and the affliction of Mrs Holland, apparently by coincidence. The singer's reappearance in the next scene, however, implies that this was not such a coincidence after all...

* In the ''Series/WarehouseThirteen'' episode "A Faire to Remember", when Claudia wakes up her sister Claire, who has been in an induced coma for fifteen years because of being a teenaged telekinetic rage monster, it turns out Claire's favourite song is "When I Grow Up" by Garbage. "When I grow up, I'll be stable..."

* The SchoolPlay (a musical written by the teachers) in the third season of ''WaterlooRoad'' is a long exercise in this trope.

* Singapore's Mediacorp broadcasting outfit sometimes takes liberties in selecting background music for the trailers of its acquired programmes - the trailer for the latest season of TotallySpies, that Fanservicey Korean-animated show, features the song "Nobody" by the equally Fanservicey and Korean Wondergirls.

* Subverted in ''Film/JerryMaguire'' - after scoring a major success in re-signing a major successful client, Jerry tries to find some triumphant SuspiciouslyAproposMusic on the radio which he can sing along to - he goes through several stations which are playing completely unsuitable songs, before finally settling on TomPetty's "Free Falling"... which isn't actually all that triumphant.

* ''Series/PersonOfInterest''. In "A Perfect Union", [[TwoLinesNoWaiting two plots are running]] -- [[ArtificialIntelligence Samaritan]] tries to convince Shaw that it's a NecessaryEvil to rule humanity, and Team Machine has to investigate this week's case at a wedding. The song that Harold Finch ends up singing for the wedding guests inadvertently sums up Team Machine's response to Samaritan's pitch.
