While we're at it, please note that this has ''nothing'' to do with songs that happen to be in the same tempo. For instance, it's a well-known and curious fact that Music/{{LMFAO}}'s "Party Rock Anthem" matches the ''Franchise/StarWars'' Cantina theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=84WpcmJ28Yg in the middle]], as well as [[TheRoaringTwenties the Charleston]] (as seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fj9_PKu9UzE here]]). But this trope is about ''lyrics'', which the Cantina theme and the Charleston don't really have. As such, this fact is cute trivia, but has nothing to do with this trope. Besides, songs being in the same tempo is a "Administrivia/PeopleSitOnChairs" thing.

** Music/TheWho's "I Can't Explain" has a similar feel and guitar tone to Music/TheKinks' "You Really Got Me". Both were produced by Shel Talmy, and Townshend himself admitted "Explain" was written as a Kinks ripoff. TheClash later used the riff from "I Can't Explain" twice, once for "Clash City Rockers" and again for "Guns On The Roof".

* In ''Theatre/TheMagicFlute'', the melody sung by the two ThresholdGuardians is that of Martin Luther's "Ach Gott, vom Himmel sieh' darein." Its arrangement is a stylistic homage to Music/JohannSebastianBach's chorale preludes.

* Just about every [[AustralianRulesFootball Australian Football League]] club theme song is an existing song with rewritten lyrics, as can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSANBgZzi6o&feature=related here]]. The only exceptions are Fremantle (which includes a small section from "Song of the Volga Boatmen"), Port Adelaide and West Coast. * The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbqQLsPCAhQ Perth Wildcats' anthem]] is to the tune of the "Hallelujah Chorus".
