* Used in ''Film/MrAndMrsSmith'' (2005), when the title characters shoot their way into an elevator not once, but twice in quick succession. Both times, the song is clearly playing on the speakers. (The second time is arguably funnier, due to the presence of bullet holes in the elevator walls...)

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' city of Ankh-Morpork, the nearest thing to a skyscraper is the unstable Tump Tower. It has prototype lifts which are ultimately powered by golems or trolls. As Assassin Miss Alice Band discovered [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5952595/7/Why-and-were when on a mission]], the lifts also have very small gnomes who are moved to play soothing tunes on their elim whistles. (a lot smaller than penny whistles).

-->"Research indicates that passengers in the new Stronginthearm lift and elevator system prefer to hear soothing light music as they ascend or descend…"
-->"Well, I don't!" said Alice, firmly.

* Subverted nicely in ''Film/{{Godzilla 1998}}''. The lead character, played by MatthewBroderick, and others escape into an elevator, which does not play "Ipanema," but "[[Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff Danke Schon]]".

* Subverted in ''Webcomic/EverydayHeroes'' during an UncomfortableElevatorMoment, when the [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=80198 music playing]] is actually "Wind Beneath My Wings". (If you can read music, you'll notice the melody is from the chorus, "Did I ever tell you you're my hero", which seems appropriate.)
