** He has another one called "Beaches of Cheyenne" which tells the story of a woman freaking out over her husband/boyfriend's refusal to withdraw from a rodeo in which he drew a bull known to be dangerous. She gives him an ultimatum, but he lies to her and enters the rodeo anyway. This apparently leads to the woman having a kind of breakdown, in which she does damage to a door and a wall, before running into the ocean, where sometimes she haunts the beach. Her reaction seems overblown at first, until you stop and realize that at no point in the song is it indicated that her cowboy *survived* his ride. (Hence, presumably, why his father is being given his buckles and saddle; they're all that's left of him.)Worse still; the last thing she apparently said to him when told he was going to ride anyway was 'I don't give a damn if you never come back.' Sure enough.....he didn't.

* The Christmas carol "[[ChristmasMusic Do You Hear What I Hear?]]" seems like a cookie cutter religious song about the birth of Jesus and how word got to the king. However, the truth of the matter was that the song was [[NewerThanTheyThink written in 1962]] as a plea for peace during the [[UsefulNotes/HistoryOfTheColdWar Cuban Missile Crisis]]. That makes the first verse of this song ("A star dancing in the night, with a tail as big as a kite") extremely horrifying when you realize that they were likely referring to a nuclear missile.

The [[SpeedyTechnoRemake Eurodance cover]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVX0POYD2sU by La Bouche]] [[LyricalDissonance makes matters worse]].

* GarthBrooks has a song called "Burning Both Ends of the Night" about how he and a friend worked for an older lady on her farm one summer, and then one night she comes to him 'hot cup of coffee and a smile/in a dress that I was certain she hadn't worn in quite a while' and it sounds at first like he rebuffs her: 'when I told her that I'd never, she softly whispered that's all right'----nope. The chorus strongly implies they TheyDo, and given that the opening stanza makes clear that he and his friend are 'two teenage kids so far from home'----the lady's actions suddenly seem predatory and awful.

* Maybe more Fridge {{Squick}} than FridgeHorror, but in KennyRogers' "Coward of the County", he sings about how the Gatlin boys "took turns with Becky", and then adds - in a very matter-of-fact way - "there was three of them". Think hard enough, and then you realize that they may not have just taken turns with Becky, but may have taken advantage of her ''all at once.''
