* Many ancient hymns and chants don't even use time signatures. As a result, some have really weird settings where each line might have, say, 4 1/2 beats. Most hymnals today will alter the rhythms of such hymns (such as "O Come O Come Emmanuel" and "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God") to make them 4/4 to make them easier for modern congregations to sing.

Most hymnals today will alter the rhythms of such hymns (such as "O Come O Come Emmanuel" and "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God") to make them 4/4 to make them easier for modern congregations to sing. The uncommon-time versions are usually called "isometric", and the straight 4/4 ones "rhythmic".

* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTUDxRfNQUM Chronologie Part 1]]" by Music/JeanMichelJarre starts in 9/8.

* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTUDxRfNQUM Chronologie Part 1]]" by Music/JeanMichelJarre starts in 9/8. You can barely tell because the only rhythmic element fast enough is an aleatoric string line. That, and instead of 3/8 + 3/8 + 3/8, it's 5/8 + 4/8.

* ''Film/WaynesWorld'' features two versions of the ''Series/MissionImpossible'' theme in 5/4.

* In ''Theatre/{{Pippin}}'', "Welcome Home" is in 5/4. "Love Song" can't pick a time signature and stick with it.

* In ''Theatre/{{Pippin}}'', "Welcome Home" is in 5/4. "Love Song" can't pick a time signature and stick disrupts its otherwise CommonTime refrain of sorts with it.a bar of 6/4, and also uses 3/4 and 7/8 in the verse.

* ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'' has "Meet Me Inside", which starts out in 7/8, giving the sense that each measure is cut off by the next and everyone's talking over each other. The signature abruptly switches over to 4/4 at the TitleDrop, signaling that Washington's arrival has shaken things up, and that the action's over.
