“Space Oddity” by David Bowie may have a Phrygian Mode intro. The chord changes are Fmaj7 to Em. Play C major scale over it. I hear the Em as the root.
Phrygian Mode is created when the third degree of a major scale is functioning as the root. I had a hard time finding true Phrygian Mode song examples for my book, Fretboard Theory. This may be as good as an example as I’ll find.
Play Until Yer Fingers Bleed!
