--> While a song with the lyrical content of that one is somewhat susceptible to this, and I'm sure people named Robert have died in car crashes, I was actually coming here to write about this too.

* During a concert in 1985, singer-songwriter Music/LeonardCohen reminisced about recording with influential producer Music/PhilSpector, as well as their shared interest in firearms: "[He was a] delightful chap. You really get to know him, you really did get to know him. And I had a Walther PPK. He had a just an ordinary .45." In 2009, Spector was convicted of murdering actress Lana Clarkson with a handgun, after what was apparently a long history of abusive behavior and threatening people with weapons.

** In October 2016 Cohen was quoted in a ''New Yorker'' interview as saying he was "ready to die," and a few days later he released ''You Want it Darker''--a melancholy album all about the approach of death and his acceptance of it. He passed away within a month.

* Music/{{Beyonce}}'s single ''Love On Top'' for 2012 is now not as funny as it once was considering the song has been associated with causing dancefloor brawls in North-West England (mainly Manchester and Liverpool). The video was full of {{Fanservice}}, which became MemeticMutation, and that's probably what caused the brawls.

* Music/ChristinaAguilera's 2006 album ''Music/BackToBasics'' when it first came out could be seen as CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming as many of the songs on the album ("Ain't No Other Man", "The Right Man", "Save Me From Myself" and others) were about her husband. But then became this big time when the two filed for divorce in 2010.
** Her 2010 album ''Music/{{Bionic}}'' also had its moments. Notably the interlude "My Heart" which was just her then husband and their son and the song "Vanity" which has the lyric "Nevermind screw him, cause I found someone better" as shortly after filing for divorce, she started dating another guy.
* The second line after the TitleDrop in Mike Posner's "I Took a Pill in Ibiza" is "To show Avicii I was cool." Now Posner has outlived Avicii, who was found dead at only 28 years old.

* The second line title of Music/{{Avicii}}'s most famous song, "Wake Me Up", after his sudden death in April 2018 at only 28. Even one of the TitleDrop in lyrics counts: "Wish that I could stay forever this young".
** Not to mention the first line of the
Mike Posner's Posner hit: "I Took took a Pill pill in Ibiza" is "To Ibiza to show Avicii I was cool." Now cool".
*** What makes that ''even worse'' (if that's even possible) is that
Posner has himself was 28 when the song was released.
** From ''The Days'':
--> ''Under the tree where the grass don't grow''
--> '''''We made a promise to never get old'''''
** “The Nights”, shared widely after his death. Even more since [[OutlivingOnesOffspring both his parents
outlived Avicii, who him.]]
--> He said, "One day you'll leave this world behind
--> So live a life you will remember."
--> My father told me when I
was found dead just a child
--> These are the nights that never die
* At the peak of their popularity, Brazilian band Mamonas Assassinas were frequent guests on local television shows, such as ''Domingão do Faustão'', which was (and still is) broadcast on Rede Globo. During [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwXplj3ssNs one of their performances]]
at only 28 years old.''Domingão'', the host, Fausto Silva, proclaimed "For the first and last time on Globo!", which turned out to be eerily accurate when a plane crash killed all five members of the band before they could appear again.

* The early [[Music/TheBeachBoys Beach Boys]] song, "I'm Bugged At My Ol' Man" from ''Music/SummerDaysAndSummerNights'' is the lament of a teenager who has been grounded by his father for staying out too late, with the specifics of his punishment exaggerated and PlayedForLaughs. At least, we hope they were exaggerated. It would later come out that Murry Wilson, father of three members of the band, including the song's vocalist and songwriter Music/Brian Wilson, had a history of physically and emotionally abusing his sons. This makes lines like "I wish I could see outside/ but he tacked up boards on my window" seem less humorous than they were originally meant to be.

** Their 1988 hit "Kokomo", with its references to Caribbean vacation-paradise islands, lost some of its charm when Montserrat ("...that Montserrat mystique...") was economically and geographically devastated by the Soufriere Hills volcano in the '90s.
*** Aruba, the very first place mentioned in the lyrics, is now best known to Americans for the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natalee_Holloway Natalee Holloway]] disappearance.
* In the same vein, Music/JimmyBuffett's "Volcano" was RECORDED on Montserrat...



* With the death of Patrick Swayze, the line "And I'm Film/{{Ghost}} like Swayze" in Music/TheLonelyIsland's ''Lazy Sunday'' takes on a whole new meaning.

* There's a cover of "Baby It's Cold Outside" done by Alan Cumming and Liza Minnelli. It's cute and funny, until you remember that Liza's mother who is supposedly "pacing the floor" was Creator/JudyGarland. ("Say, what's in this drink?")
