Added DiffLines:

* In a rather epic cross between this and {{Word Puree|Title}} TitleDrop and LoopedLyrics, the chorus of Ece Seçkin's ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2g3-Ba0NA5E Adeyyo]]''. ''Adeyyo lallaleyo adeyyo lallale…''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[WesternAnimation/CartoonPlanet Cartoon Planet's]]'' aptly-named musical number, "Scat Sandwich."

Added DiffLines:

* The Silhouettes' 1958 hit "Get A Job" has a chorus that is entirely scatting apart from the title.


* Msic/LambOfGod's "Black Label". Even with the lyrics handy, you can hardly make out what Randy Blythe is singing there.

* "Centerfold" by the Music/JGeilsBand has a Scatting part right after the second chorus and one near the end.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheEmperorsNewGroove'', Kronk scats his own spy-movie-esque "danger music" when he's sneaking through town with llamafied Kuzco in a sack. Worth particular mention is the "tense moment" segment where two villagers approach; Kronk flattens himself against a wall and softly croons "eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" on a sustained high note until they're past.

Added DiffLines:

* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FsZjnYoUUKs Kill DOG as a Sacrifice to DOG]]", Leopaldon's theme in ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear Isuka'', has vocals, but they're so heavily distorted that it just sounds like someone screaming incomprehensibly in the background.

Added DiffLines:

** And "It's A Fine Day" itself was a cover of Jane's song with the same name from 1983 (!).


* Music/TheSimpleMinds' have done this occasionally. Most famously during the coda of [[BlackSheepHit Don't You (Forget About Me)]]

** Stands out as one of the only parts of the song they actually wrote (aside from the [[EpicRiff intro]].) Singer Jim Kerr has expressed that this part is [[SarcasmMode "very meaningful"]]

* Most Creator/CirqueDuSoleil songs use "Cirquish" nonsense vocals. Such as "Elma om mi lize, elma om mi lize away, baby o ma ley, m baby o ma ley", from ''Theatre/{{Amaluna}}''. Only on rare occasions do they perform a song in English or a real foreign language.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' theme song's lyrics has "La, la, la la la la..." either in part (as in the Season 2 opening) or throughout, which is why it is also called "The La La Song".

Added DiffLines:

* Christian singer Shawn [=MacDonald=] in an early version of "All I Need" basically scatted through a portion of the song that he didn't have any lyrics written for at that point.


* The Smurflings in the ''Fanfic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'' story adaptation "The New Smurfs On The Block" do this with an anachronistic parody of a Hanson song: "Smurfbop, smurf a bop, I smurf a bop, smurfy smurfy do wop, smurfbop, smurf a bop, I smurf...yeah, yeah".

* Played with in ''TheSimpsons Movie'': as Music/GreenDay perform the Simpsons theme, the 'lyrics' are shown on their prompter as a scrolling wall of "Da Da Da Da Da Da..."

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' use this for the singing of Malon and Lulu, respectively. Use of this trope goes back to ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'', where Marin (of whom Malon is an {{Expy}}) sings [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome "The Ballad of the Windfish"]].
