Coldplay's Ghost Stories: True Love, Oceans. Killers' Day & Age: Goodnight, Travel Well, Lana del Rey: Born to Die, Young and Beautiful. Quite frankly, I have string player friends who are hired by Dr. Dre (so not "pop") all the time.

Brass isn't called for so much as string sections. (but you're ignoring all the commercial work (shorts/ads/indie films)) Also there is the massive trailer/jingle market who don't/won't pay royalties/cue sheet.
