* "Remember" from ''WesternAnimaton/DannyPhantom''. Sam even scoffs it as a mindless pop song. It is a depressing song about how a girl was abandoned by a boy. It gets even worse when it turns out it's about Ember's ''death''. {{Fanon}} largely took it as a song about Ember committing suicide however WordOfGod says it isn't quite that dark, though not by much. Ember was an unpopular girl who was asked out by a boy who never came to the date. She was too exhausted to wake up when a fire broke out and died. Suddenly Ember's [[AttentionWhore need to be remembered]] and breakdown when her PopularityPower fails is [[HarsherInHindsight dramatically less amusing]].

** The song "Do it for Him/Her" from the episode Sworn to the Sword also fits this trope. The song starts as a really nice piano piece about how to fence. It quickly develops into a nice piano piece about how [[DeliberateValuesDissonance worthless you are and how]] [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop you should die defending the person you love, because (s)he's the only one who gives a meaning to your life.]]

** In the episode "The Death Camp of Tolerance," a gerbil named Lemmiwinks is forced to [[OrificeInvasion crawl up Mr. Slave's ass]], and he (Lemmiwinks) must traverse Mr. Slave's entire digestive system and [[OrificeEvacuation crawl out the mouth]] or else he will die. Amusingly, this entire disgusting sequence is described in a song with a merry, adventure-y tune.

---> "Amethyst: [[spoiler: I don't care about what all the others say / Well, I guess there are some things that just never go away / I wish that I could say, "There's no better place than home" / But home's a place that I have never known."]]

---> "Amethyst: '''Amethyst:''' [[spoiler: I don't care about what all the others say / Well, I guess there are some things that just never go away / I wish that I could say, "There's no better place than home" / But home's a place that I have never known."]]"]] ** The ending theme, ''Love Like You'', is a sweet little lullaby-like piano tune, and the full lyrical version is sung sweetly enough that you could hear it as just a nice, relaxing song. Except that the lyrics are actually the singer lamenting about what a terrible person they are compared to the person they're singing to: -->''I always thought I might be bad, now I'm sure that it's true'' -->'''Cause I think you're so good, and I'm nothing like you''

* WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow has the "Happy Happy Joy Joy Song". Although the song itself is a deliberately insipid -- though insanely catchy -- song about being happy, it's the increasingly insane rantings of Stinky Wizzleteats (the singer) between verses that bring some dissonance. "I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me! Why didn't you believe me?!" (The reason is that most of these lines are quotes or paraphrases of BurlIves' character from TheBigCountry, but of course younger viewers -- especially kids -- can't be expected to catch the references.)

Not relevant.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EETGwAYoHgU Little Brothers]]" from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' is sung to an extremely sweet [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments heartwarming]] tune, complete with an adorable through-the-years montage of Candace's relationship with her brothers. Then, you get to the silly chorus. -->You will always be my little brothers,\\ Cause you're younger, we're related,\\ And you're boys.

** After the song ends: -->'''Granny Puckett:''' Sweet tea and cookies! We've got to do something! -->'''The Wolf:''' I know. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint The song was catchy, but the choreography was terrible.]]

** The song "On the Run" starts up as an upbeat little tune, Steven's lyrics reflecting whatever he likely thought the No-Home Boys would've thought. Amethyst's turn the song around, however. ---> "Amethyst: [[spoiler: I don't care about what all the others say / Well, I guess there are some things that just never go away / I wish that I could say, "There's no better place than home" / But home's a place that I have never known."]]
