I was checking the British singles charts and was shocked to see the Bellamy Brothers' "Let Your Love Flow" at #36. It turns out it was used in a UK credit card advertisement and has reached as high as #21 on their charts! It was number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on May 1, 1976!

It's always interesting when this happens. If any other examples come to mind, post them here if you want.

The first one that comes to my mind is "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen. The original release hit #9 (IIRC) in 1975 and then it hit #1 1992 (again, IIRC) after Freddie Mercury's death and being featured in the movie Wayne's World.
