according to Wiki

The song started receiving widespread airplay in September 1973, after it was featured over the end credits of the ABC TV movie, She Lives!, starring Desi Arnaz Jr. and Season Hubley.

Maureen McCormick performed the song on a 1977 episode of the variety show The Brady Bunch Hour.

This song was performed on a 1977 episode of The Muppet Show.

The song was used in television commercials for Mateus wine in 1983.

The song's melody was mimicked in a Chinese remake used in the movie Fleet of Time featuring Faye Wong.

The song has been played on episodes of the British TV series Heartbeat when a sad event (such as a death of one of the main characters) occurs.

The song was sung by Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong) and Alan Garner (Zach Galifinakis) in an elevator in The Hangover Part II.

The song was featured in X-Men: Days of Future Past in a slow-motion sequence showcasing the character Quicksilver.

"Time in a Bottle" was used in The Last Man on Earth episode "Dead Man Walking", during the funeral of a minor character named Gordon (portrayed by Will Ferrell).

The song was used for the funeral scene for Robert De Niro's deceased wife in Dirty Grandpa (2016).

In 2016, Apple released an iPhone 6s commercial called "Timer" featuring "Time in a Bottle". The commercial also features Sesame Street's Cookie Monster interacting with Siri.

A cover of the song was made by the band YUNGBLUD for the 2019 film Hobbs and Shaw.
