* ''Music/KidsPraise'': This being a musical album, numerous praise songs are cued this way: Arky Arky or the Wise Man and the Foolish Man when it begins to rain, or a prayer thanking God triggering The Butterfly Song are just a few examples.

* There's a strange scene in ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons'' movie where Judy and her [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Blue Skinned Space Hunk]] start to sing a song in a Holodeck, and the entire plot is completely derailed so that we can watch a DisneyAcidSequence set to a Tiffany song. This comes across as a MythologyGag to the episode of the series in which teen heartthrob Jet Screamer sings the song "Eep Opp Ork Ah Ah".

* Even Creator/AlfredHitchcock succumbed to this: the 1956 remake of ''Film/TheManWhoKnewTooMuch'', which showcases Doris Day singing "Que Sera, Sera" ''multiple times'', ultimately using it [[spoiler:in a game of Marco Polo so our protagonists can locate their kidnapped offspring]].

* Happens in ''Series/PushingDaisies'' with Olive singing "Hopelessly Devoted to You" and another episode with the song "Birdhouse in Your Soul." In this case they're a chance for KristinChenoweth to show off.

This trope most often occurs when a composer wrote a really keen song. Or if there is a big star in the movie who must have a solo. Or the director has a favorite song that he wants to put in the movie. Unfortunately, there is really no way to inject the song into the story in the traditional "burst into song" way. So, the writer often gives us the immortal line "That reminds me of a song," or something similar and the character sits down at a piano or hops up on the stage to sing a little ditty that has... '''no''' plot significance whatsoever. ("Let's rehearse the ___ number" or "Let's film our music video" or "Let's dance to ___" and then doing exactly that are also popular.)

* In the film of ''Theatre/DamnYankees'' there's a show for the Senators baseball team where their fans pay tribute with song. But Lola and another dancer perform a random mambo number that has nothing to do with the team at all. Everyone claps when it ends and the show continues. Next scene.

* "Those Magic Changes" from ''Film/{{Grease}}'' has nothing to do with '''anything''' else that happens during the show; it's just a random "hey, let's sing a song" moment. They fix it in TheMovie, where instead of having Doody randomly play a song, a live band performs it in the background as a warm-up number for the National Dance-Off in Rydell High's gymnasium.

* ''Theatre/ThePiratesOfPenzance'' had a short bit where everyone stops to sing a little song extolling the virtues of poetry. This is right in the middle of a rather dramatic bit where the Major-General is attempting to deceive the pirates about being an orphan, so that they won't marry all his daughters and take them away.
** G&S get away with this one, though, on the account of said little song being [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic fucking awesome]].

* Parodied in ''Series/Danger5''. In Season 2, Pierre always has "the right song" for a particular moment, then pulls out a cassette tape depicting as such: usually something like "Stop Bitin (My Friend's Face)".
