** From UHF, we have the Beverly Hillbillies theme, which is a parody of Money For Nothing. Fitting, then, that Mark Knophler from Dire Straits play lead guitar on the track.

* DireStraits's "Money For Nothing" is well known for the background singing that Sting does in it. You know, "[[{{MTV}} I want my emmmmmmmm teeeeeeee veeeeeeeeeee.......]]" (in the same tune of "[[ThePolice Don't Stand So Close To Me]]")

* TomWaits pitch-perfect turn as Tommy in {{Primus}}' "Tommy the Cat".
* {{Queen}}: David Bowie joining up for "Under Pressure". Steve Howe playing a relatively short (compared to Music/{{Yes}} and Asia standards) flamenco guitar solo on "Innuendo", which has become a classic and one loads of people around the world try to learn and replicate (oddly appropriate given that Brian May asked Steve to do it because he couldn't manage it). Also, the half-minute operatic section on "'Bohemian Rhapsody" is arguably one of the first things people recall about Queen in spite of being very different to 99% of things the band did before or since.
* On the FrankZappa album ''Broadway the Hard Way'', Sting comes on halfway through and performs "Murder by Numbers".
