* The "Flying" theme from the '03 ''Peter Pan'' is used in children's fantasy-adventure trailers almost as much as "What's This". That movie's trailer used ''The Crystal Chamber'' from ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'', which was also from James Newton Howard. It's especially odd to hear on the commercials for the Ride/DisneyThemeParks, considering Disney has its own version of ''Disney/PeterPan''.

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnDIu5YaKFI theatrical trailer]] for ''Film/{{Nell}}'' used James Newton Howard's end theme from ''Film/WyattEarp''. This music gets used a ''lot'' for inspiring stories, especially depicting rural life. The TV promo used the love theme from ''Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story'' by Randy Edelman.

* The trailer for ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' featured Music/ThinLizzy's "The Boys Are Back in Town". Nowhere to be found in the film, though. It's sung in the [[RecycledInSpace on-ice version]]. "The Boys Are Back in Town" would become the trilogy's signature trailer song, being reused to promote ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 3]]''.

%%* Music/ESPosthumus' album ''Unearthed'' has been regularly plundered for trailer music. Interestingly, ''Series/ColdCase'' also [[RealSongThemeTune uses music from this album as the title theme]]. Unsurprisingly, the duo wound up producing the theme for the SuperBowl one year.
