* "New York Mining Disaster 1941" by Music/TheBeeGees is an upbeat sounding song about two miners being trapped after a cave-in waiting for help that will never come.

* "Slide" by Music/TheGooGooDolls is a sweet-sounding, gentle tune about a girl that gets an abortion after the singer gets her pregnant, [[GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion and the guilt that she and the singer feel from doing so.]]

** "Jumping Jack Flash" is about how the singer's life was terrible, such as losing his parents and instead being raised by "a toothless bearded hag", but that it's "all right now". Now [[http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=MvLCnKqYWzA&fmt=18 listen to it in]] ''EliteBeatAgents''.

* '"Number City" by CoheedAndCambria is a catchy, upbeat, almost ska-like ditty about how ''the singer's wife is bleeding to death after a car crash''.

* Music/{{Saga}}'s "Perfectionist" has a very up-beat sound, but the lyrics involves a man planning on murdering his dinner guests.

* ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Tonight is the Night I Fell Asleep at the Wheel]]'' by the BarenakedLadies. The music has a soft, dreamy, almost whimsical feel to it, which makes sense considering it's about falling asleep. But when compared to [[KilledOffForReal the subject matter]] and the lyrics themselves...

** And from "Oh! You Pretty Things" from ''Music/HunkyDory'', a catchy, mellow song about [[ChildhoodsEnd humanity's obsolescence and replacement by a superior species]]:

Added DiffLines:

* Radiohead's "Burn The Witch" is so dark and brooding, that Black Sabbath would be hard pressed to come up with anything that evokes a stronger feeling of impending doom... But the song itself is actually played as if it was a Pop song. The music video for this song only makes the dissonance even weirder. The music video retells the classic horror movie "The Wicker Man" in only 3 minutes... using stop-motion modelling-clay figures that resemble something taken straight out of Camberwick Green... It's a very children-friendly horror movie music video, with Doom Metal-like Pop music playing.

** "Highway To Hell" is about someone whose life is on the wrong track, living a lifestyle that solicits sex, drugs and alcohol... It's also one of '''the''' most iconic classic rock songs ever, fitting the recipe perfectly. Major Key? Check. Up-beat tempo? Check. Positive, cheerful lyrics? Eh, not so much...

** Newman's "I Love L.A." is a wholly ironic song which contained veiled jabs at LA's scorching heat and homeless problem, but if you ignore those 2 lines, it can easily be taken at face value, to the point where the LA Visitors Bureau used the song unironically to encourage tourism!
