* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aN6ef0ED9aI "The Ballad of Magellan"]] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', a rather lively and happy-sounding song about Magellan's famous voyage - the one that ended in his death. The song is ''far'' more lively than the lyrics, tune, and story (which is actually historically accurate) suggest.

* As an example from a musical - ''Disney/TheLionKing 2'' has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJGqxf86cZs "My Lullaby"]], [[VillainSong a brutal declaration of war and violence]] set to the tune of a children's lullaby. On the other hand, it grows to be pretty creepy...

* Creator/TimBurton is a master of mixing the macabre and the lighthearted, so it's no surprise that the music in his movies are the same. The best example is "Remains Of The Day" from ''WesternAnimation/CorpseBride'', a swinging jazzy tune about death and murder. Even while you're tapping your feet to the beat, you probably don't miss the extremely dark chorus:
--> "Die, die, we all pass away, but don't wear a frown, cause it's really ok! You might try to hide, and you might try to pray, but we all end up the remains of the day!"
* "The World's Greatest Criminal Mind", from ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'', is one of Disney's cheeriest villain songs. The most disturbing lyrics?
--> Even Meaner? You mean it? Worse than the widows and orphans you drowned?
* ''{{Hoodwinked}}!'' crosses it over with SoundtrackDissonance in a JustBetweenYouAndMe. After Red's fight with Boingo in the tram terminal, he orders Dolph to tie her up. She says, "You're crazy!" and he replies "Maybe, but I'm top of the woods now, baby!" So he sings "[[VillainSong Top of the Woods]]", an upbeat song with lyrics about oppression, getting children addicted to goodies, and becoming a ruthless dictator, like:

-->''"When you're hopping on down the bunny trail, the critters all seem to look down\\
You're fuzzy and small\\
Your ears are too tall\\
And goodies make the woods go round"''

-->''"Now I'm not a pig\\
But you gotta think big when you're competing with the girl in the hood\\
So you won't be a fan of my evil plan, but I'm gonna be top of the woods!"''

-->''"When your only desire is to dominate the land of the wolves and the squirrels\\
You've got to think with a open mind and learn to detest little girls\\
And everyone knows at the end of a show the villain puts his plan into words\\
Except [[MediumAwareness there won't be a rescue before the credits roll]] cause I'm gonna be top of the woods!"''

-->''"Now the kids will be packed with my [=BoingoSnax=]\\
Construction begins in a day\\
And all of the bears will be ruled by the hare\\
As I maniacally plot from my evil lair!"'' [''cue [[EvilLaugh evil laugh]]'']

** At the end, with some nice upbeat chords: "[[TitleDrop You've been hoodwinked, baby!]] Oh, yeahhh"

** The soundtrack dissonance comes when you consider his audience (Red, who is tied up with ropes).

* When used in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Puffy AmiYumi's "Shiawase" ("Happiness") sounds like a bouncy, lively song. The lyrics, however, when translated to English, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dkdd91R9dBo don't seem quite so innocent.]]
