* Music/NickCave has a great example of this. In his MurderBallad duet with Kylie Minogue, "Where the Wild Roses Grow" from ''Music/MurderBallads'', he sings from the perspective of a deranged man who is madly in love with a girl (Kylie, in this case). In the end he kills her. That was obvious, no fridge in that one. But let's have a look at the last lines of the song.

* For those who don't already know their Creator/JohnMilton by heart, "Song Of Joy" from ''Music/MurderBallads'' has a great example too; the UnreliableNarrator tells us that the serial killer who slaughtered his family "quotes John Milton on the walls [[CouldntFindAPen in his victims' blood]]/In my house he wrote "His RedRightHand"/And that, [[ObfuscatingStupidity I'm told]], is from ''Literature/ParadiseLost''." It's creepy. Then you look up the lyric sheet, where Nick has made sure to note that the narrator's monologue is ''full'' of Milton quotes. And any doubts of the killer's identity is go out the window, and you're left wondering just how well the "family man" he's addressing knows his Milton... the fact that the monologue is also full of Music/NickCave quotes doesn't make it any less creepy.

---> On the third day he took me to the river
---> He showed me the roses and we kissed
---> And the last thing I heard was a muttered word
---> As he knelt (stood smiling) above me with a rock in his fist
