Not the same thing as TitleThemeDrop, which is when a title theme is also used in the context of the work itself such as if a remix of the title theme plays when fighting the final boss of a video game, though there may be some overlap at times, if both are used within the same work. Basically, if a character hums the theme tune, a band plays it or it's on a ringtone or something -- if it's diegetic-- then it's this trope. If the theme song plays as the soundtrack over the episode, then it's a TitleThemeDrop. If the ''lyrics'' of the theme tune (or any other song) are used in dialogue, it's WaxingLyrical. See also ThemeMusicPowerUp.
