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.
i remember it now right

I don't know if you're interested in books as well as movies and TV, but there are plenty of fantasy novels in which music has magical properties. Like The Armageddon Rag by George R. R. Martin or The Black Opera by Mary Gentle.
its ok too
how they used music there?

Would Mothra count?
again - how they used music there?

I suspect the use of music at the end of the most recent episode of Fringe was meant to trigger a specific memory hidden in Walter's mind.
they also used music notes / vibrations or something like that in early episodes too no?
