* One level in ''VideoGame/RevolutionX'' (featuring Music/{{Aerosmith}}) has brief interludes in an elevator; [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32oZviti5qo the music that plays]] is, fittingly, a muzak version of "Love in an Elevator".

* When Alton Brown reviewed [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgFeVlw2Ywg useless kitchen gadgets]] for ''The Daily Dot'', the long cooking time for the Rollie Eggmaster was backed by a ballroom-style song that, if not precisely "The Girl from Ipanema", was ''very'' close to it.

* In an [[HilariousOuttakes outtake]] for ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' Season 4, the actors are huddled in a corner of a Wraith set (a teleportation room in the corresponding episode). This looks so much like an UncomfortableElevatorMoment that David Hewlett [[InvokedTrope starts humming]] "The Girl from Ipanema", cracking up the others.
* This trope is also ''averted'' in an episode of ''Series/StargateSG1''. Sam Carter and Jack O'Neill are standing in one of the lifts at the SGC, having a bit of an UncomfortableElevatorMoment, and Sam starts humming [[ThemeTuneCameo the show's]] ''ThemeSong''. Behind-the-scene commentary reveals that Amanda Tapping originally wanted this to be the theme song for ''[=MacGyver=]'' (as an ActorAllusion to Richard Dean Anderson), but nobody could remember it right.
* In the ''Series/StargateUniverse'' episode "Epilogue", the elevator at the Teneran archives, which were created by the descendants of stranded 21st century Earth time-travelers, plays a SuspiciouslySimilarSong to "The Girl from Ipanema".

* Humorously used by Keith Olbermann on his sports show. The theme was that all the sports stories had gotten him riled up, and he had to leave his studio, go down to the ground floor, open the back door and let out a primal scream. All the way there and back he was muttering to himself...except when he's in the elevator, which was playing a happy, peppy number that had him smiling.

* Subverted and PlayedForLaughs in ''Rutetid'', a cartoon spinoff of ComicBook/{{Pondus}}. A man and his wife leaves an elevator in shock, revealing that the music inside is played by a live black metal band. Cue this line: "I always thought elevator music was bad, but ''this''...
* ComicBook/TheFarSide also runs away with this trope, stuffing a string quartet inside the elevator.

* For a band that likes Death Metal, and ONLY Death Metal, Dethklok of ''WesternAnimation/Metalocalypse'' certainly have an interesting choice of music in their elevators.
