Sometimes you'll be playing a game or watching a show and think, hey, this soundtrack is pretty good. You'll go look for it and download it but be very disappointed that one of the best songs isn't there! After closer inspection, it IS there, but it's not in the form that you would like to listen to on your free time. Rather, it's got song lyrics on top of it. After a long time of searching the internet, all you find is more people with the same problem.

    So this is a YMMV Audience Reaction, and thus not a standard trope.

    But it's not YMMV. It's a thing that happens. It may be influenced by YMMV in how good the modified song really is, but the fact remains that there is an existing version of the song that you will never hear.

    ^The description is still written as an Audience Reaction. You might want to fix that.

    When the version with lyrics isn't actually heard in the game or show itself, I would consider it an example of Forgotten Theme Tune Lyrics.
