Re: the use of music in scifi & fantasy

BSG used the song All Along the Watchtower as an integral part of the story, to signal a sort of switching on of several key characters in their realization that they were Cylons. Later on Starbuck used music, a simple piano melody, in a sort of trippy head case realization of where Earth was.
I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for exactly, but it was the most obvious case that jumped out at me as a case of music being used beyond mere background music.
