"O Mio Babbino Caro" (translated "Oh My Dear Daddy") is an aria from the 1918 opera "Gianni Schicchi." It has since been used in various films and television. Which usage do you find the best?

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls041008295/

PLEASE suggest and provide descriptions of what happens when the song is featured.  I know this song has been in more films, I just can't find anything on it!  Thank you!

NarniaisAwesome,

This aria does appear to be almost omnipresent in many films, television series and advertisements.

NarniaisAwesome,

Are you still considering adding more choices? You currently have five (5) choices in your poll. There may still be other viable choices based upon the searches and suggestions that MAthePA and I provided.

Btw, it's much better searchable with fewer keywords "Babbino Caro":
IMDb (158 titles), Goggle (226 results)

But any common way of searching would not provide you with the next option:
Lyubov - smertelnaya igra (1991) - produced in Ukraine during the last year of Soviet Union. I can not recommend it for world-wide audience to watch, just as an example of the great popularity that "O Mio Babbino Caro" enjoing in cinema-production.

MAthePA,

Maria Callas was an amazing singer. In many ways she probably defined the term diva.

Sadly, none of your suggestions meet the criteria for the poll.

What a great title and creative poll! 

May I suggest one small edit? ('below in bold: 'added "series")

It has since been used in various films and television series

Thanks!  The reason I put television instead of series is because of options like Charlie Brown - it's not really a episodic series.  But your edit suggestion was correct in general.  :)
