* Music/JeanMichelJarre's time-themed 1993 album ''Chronologie'' has sounds of clocks of many kinds all over it, be it as layers (!) of ambient noise (the transition from "Part 1" to "Part 2" and after "Part 3", for example), be it as rhythmic percussion ("Part 4", "Part 5" and the end of "Part 8"). To top this off, "Part 4", "Part 5" and "Part 8" contain a sample of the electronic alarm melody of a 1992 Swatch [=MusiCall=] wristwatch which was composed by Jarre himself.

* Creator/TheBBC's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MDL8CJFmcw news theme]]. Revised in 2013 with extra strings when the news moved to its new studios. The pulsed beeps that provide a "heartbeat" reveal the song's tempo to be '''''exactly''''' one beat per second (as shown by the on-screen countdown to the top of the hour), and are in fact intended as a reference to the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenwich_Time_Signal Greenwich Time Signal]] aka "the Pips", six tones, the first 5 each a tenth of a second long, the sixth a half-second long which are broadcasted on BBC radio every hour on the hour, with the long closing "pip" marking the top of the hour. When a Leap-Second is added to worldwide atomic clocks, a seventh pip is added, a sixth short beep before the final, now '''seven'''th, beep, of greater length than the preceding pulses.
