*** "Meanwhile" by George Strait has a chorus a half step up from the verses, while sounding a half step down due to the chords used. The last chorus is a more traditional truck-driver change from the verses, but weirdly, the song ends in a ''fourth'' different key.

* The eponymous song from ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'': "As the sun will rise..."
* "Flying Dreams" from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH''. The song has a very loose, undefined lyrical structure, so it's roughly: Verse in C, bridge up to A#, chorus back down to C, instrumental break in C -- and then the second iteration of the bridge modulates a full step ''down'' to B major before finishing in C.



* Happens twice in "Give A Little" by Hanson. It starts in C, moves up to D after the first chorus, and to E after the bridge.
* Chicago's "Chasin' the Wind" has one of these before the final chorus.

** It also appears in "Defying Gravity". Elphie gets a three-bar phrase repeated four times to allow her to get into the fly rig. It goes up a tone beginning with the third repeat, and the rest of the song continues in that key.
