* The 30-second [[JeopardyThinkingMusic theme]] played during the Final ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'' round does this halfway through, though it goes up a minor third instead of the more-standard-for-this-trope minor second.
** When the same melody became the theme song for the 1984 version, this trope was turned UpToEleven: the song starts in B, goes up to C, then F, A-flat, B, D, F, then ends in A-flat. Every other {{rearrange|TheSong}}ment used afterwards has kept most of the key changes.

* "[=MacArthur=] Park", in Donna Summer's CoverVersion, modulates its last refrain a step down. The original (and Music/WeirdAlYankovic's abridged parody "Jurassic Park") enters the last chorus a perfect fourth higher, in F rather than C; the vocal ensemble takes over at the BigNo, where the melody rises too high for Richard Harris to sing.
