* In ''AFunnyThingHappenedOnTheWayToTheForum'', the characters of Senex and Hysterium sing or hum the songs "Everybody Ought to Have a Maid" and "I'm Calm" at a various points. The first one's a plot point, as Senex mistakes Philia for a new maid (read: concubine), prompting the song. He sings it later while taking a bath, unintentionally leading Erronius to [[IncrediblyLamePun erroneously]] believe that his house is haunted.

* In the first episode of the early-1980s Public Radio serialization of ''StarWars'', the famous Main Title fades down and is filtered to become -- the background music of a commercial for the Imperial Merchant Marine Corps to which Luke is listening.
* In StanFreberg's ''Franchise/{{Dragnet}}'' spoof "Little Blue Riding Hood," Granny's doorbell plays the ''Dragnet'' theme. (For this and its A-side "St. George And The Dragonet," the orchestra used was the actual ''Dragnet'' orchestra, as Jack Webb loved the idea!)

* One episode of ''TheNavyLark'' has Sub-Lieutenant Phillips whistling the show's theme music as a "Ditty" he'd picked up somewhere. He's promptly told to stop it by the rest of the cast as it [[BitingTheHandHumor sounds silly and annoying]].

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 ThemeSongPowerUp.

* While ''TheIncredibles'' doesn't have a proper theme song, the most-repeated motif from the score is called "Mr. Incredible's Theme". Bob Parr can be heard humming this melody when he returns home after a night of clandestine superheroing. In addition, one of the DVD {{Easter Egg}}s shows Mr. Incredible dancing to a swing version of the theme.
