* Music/DanielAmos' album ''Music/HorrendousDisc'' is mainly upbeat rock songs about [[GodIsGood how cool God is]], with a [[LyricalDissonance few darker themes set to misleadingly cheerful tunes]]. Not so the final song, "Horrendous Disc". The lyrics are about a domestic abuser who suddenly receives a surreal and [[ParanoiaFuel paranoia-inducing]] judgement. The music is minor-key, ending on a dirge-like coda featuring OminousChanting.

* Simply Red's album ''Home'' starts out with an upbeat, jazzy song with the same name, about a man longing for home. The album ends with a brief DarkReprise of the song, but accompanied by only a piano and a somber, lonely tone.

* Although Steven Wilson has stated that the fate of the teenage protagonist in [[Music/PorcupineTree Porcupine Tree's]] ConceptAlbum ''Fear of a Blank Planet'' is open to listener interpretation, the increasingly desperate lyrics as the album progresses and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBKebb5NV78 bleak mood]] of "Sleep Together", the album's final song, strongly imply that he is DrivenToSuicide.

* The most common version of "She Moved through the Fair" has the female love interest die in the third verse, and visit the man as a ghost in the fourth. Ironically, the first publication of this version did not include the third verse. An alternate version has the woman run off with another suitor.

** Speaking of Pink Floyd, the band itself had a DownerEnding. By the end of its recording Career, one member was partially insane, one member had [[JerkAss run off]] with as many music rights as possible and remember all this while listening to the last ever song made by the band, "High Hopes".

* Brave Shores's Never Come Down. A bald man named Adam wishes for hair, and almost instantaneously, his wish came true. He wildly shakes his head throughout the video. Near the end, he felt pain in his neck, making him go to the doctor. Because Adam realized his neck is fractured by looking at the x-ray, the doctor tells him that he's dying.
