* Creator/MontyPython's ''{{Spamalot}}'' has "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life," a song about how life seriously sucks but if you make the most of it, you might end up not being depressed. In its original presentation in ''Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian'' it's being sung by a bunch of crucified people. Despite their fate this is their philosophy.

** SubvertedTrope: This original version is not presented as the ideal philosophy it is often portrayed as today, and ends up becoming an obstacle Simba must throw off before he can [[spoiler: kill Scar and claim his inheritance.]] In fact, it shows him being ''apathetically cynical''. "Bad things happen and there's nothing you can do about it. So why worry?"
