Star Trek gave me a favorite lullaby

Every time I sing Frère Jacques to the Geek Baby, I’m reminded that I learned the song from Star Trek: The Next Generation, in the episode “Disaster.” Picard sings the song with the children he’s ended up stranded with… and it’s the only source I have for the song. I don’t speak French at all otherwise, which is especially apparent when I sing the third line…

The link should be to only one instance of them singing it (that video loops for 10 minutes!).

What songs do you only know from TV?
