* "I Cannot Do It Alone" from ''{{Film/Chicago}}'' counts as this, though the situation is inverted: Velma is recruiting Roxie (herself a VillainProtagonist), because Roxie is in the better position, and Velma needs help.

** There was also the song "Are You In Or Out?" - sung by TheDragon after he assumes control of what's left of the gang once all but half a dozen of them have been driven out. It's not so much a recruitment song as a really aggressive "I'm the wave of the future, so stick with me and we'll all go places" kind of song.

It's not so much a recruitment The song as is unique in that it's a really aggressive "I'm ''re''-recruitment song; the wave of the future, so stick with me and we'll all go places" kind of song.thieves have already banded together, it's just that TheDragon wants them to follow him again.

This is a trope about trying to recruit the hero, not random mooks.

* "That's Motivation" -- ''Absolute Beginners''. This movie has several characters who qualify as antagonists, but the only one who gets a song is Vendice Partners, an advertising executive who convinces the idealistic photographer protagonist to join him in the business of selling dreams and selling out via a DisneyAcidSequence. This results in the aforementioned temporary FaceHeelTurn until the hero learns that Partners and the other antagonists are all in on an evil scheme. DavidBowie played Vendice, wrote the song (lyrics [[http://www.teenagewildlife.com/music/st/AB/TM.html here]]), and got third billing in the credits -- all with good cause.
