* ''Theatre/MyFairLady'' has "Ascot Races", in which lines of motionless, expressionless aristocracy sing about how 'thrilling, absolutely chilling' the race they're watching is (the music fits the restrained visuals rather than the words).

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=D01Vm0P654U VD Is For Everybody]]" is a 1970s {{PSA}} warning us about how anyone can have nasty sexually transmitted diseases set to a rather romantic tune and played over clips of cheerful and pleasant people happily living out their lives.

* In Creator/TimBurton's ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'', the Oompa-Loompas' {{morality ballad}}s are all fun and energetic, but the lyrics graphically detail the potential gruesome fates of misbehaving children. Perhaps the most JustForFun/{{egregious}} example is [[BlackComedyCannibalism the Augustus Gloop song]], about how poor Augustus is going to be [[TheSecretOfLongPorkPies mixed into Wonka's fudge]].

* Deliberately, blatantly, and hilariously invoked by Andrew Hansen of ''Series/TheChasersWarOnEverything'', in his lounge arrangement of the CannibalCorpse song "Rancid Amputation".

** The tail-end of "You're Welcome"; Maui's IAmGreatSong starts out with a recap of all the awesome things he's done, but near the finish he sings on how he's taking Moana's boat-- and then traps her in a cave.
-->''Hey, it's okay, okay,\\
"You're welcome" (You're welcome!)\\
But come to think of it, I gotta go!\\
Hey, it's you day to say\\
"You're welcome" (You're welcome!)\\
'Cause I'm gonna need that boat\\
I'm sailing away, away\\
You're welcome (You're welcome!)\\
'Cause Maui can do everything but float!\\
You're welcome! (You're welcome!) You're welcome! (You're welcome!) You're welcome!''\\
And thank you!

* 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:

* The children's movie ''WesternAnimation/TheBraveLittleToaster'' contains a song near its end which the other wiki sums up perfectly: "''Worthless'' is sung by the junkyard's broken down cars, each singing a few verses about their life before being smashed and killed by the compactor." However, they fail to mention the upbeat music it's sung to.
* [[http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=imKPenpVyPQ "L'il Ark Angel"]] from ''WesternAnimation/CatsDontDance'' starts with Darla singing about the world being destroyed in a flood and people and animals drowning in exactly the same cheerful tone she later sings about the various animals she's rescuing. If you hadn't already realized she'd be the BigBad of the film from the foreshadowing in the intro, it's hard to miss it after that.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXSsagwvo3M "Batty Rap"]] from ''WesternAnimation/FernGullyTheLastRainforest''. It has a fast and springy beat and tune.....with the lyrics being about how Batty was used in animal testing laboratory, with strong implications that ''he was conscious throughout all the processes''. Due to its 'adult' nature, quite a bit of the song was cut from the film, but was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1g5Oajn5UE left in on the CD]].
-->"The Eye makeup, when inserted rectally, has some effect...\\
Remove the brain cap...\\
If you notice, by dipping the bat in a series of paints...\\
After 600 packs of cigarettes, the animals seem to exhibit some carcinogenic tendencies..."\\
[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Oh God, I'm bleeding by my genitals!]]
** The tune's single most horrifying line: "As you see, the animals don't really feel pain, ''THEY JUST GET USED TO IT!!!''"
* The song "Mother Knows Best" in ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' is a cheerful, bouncy song where Gothel terrifies Rapunzel by listing off all the "scary and dangerous" things in the outside world and how all of them ''will'' happen to Rapunzel if she steps out of the tower. Throughout the song, Gothel is intentionally [[AbusiveParents emotionally abusing]] Rapunzel by playing with her fears to make her seem like she's the only one in the cruel world Rapunzel could trust.

* Inverted in a RunningGag on ''Series/TheMaryWhitehouseExperience'', where they make fun of Robert Smith of [[Music/TheCure The Cure's]] (brief) attempts to show his cheerful, happy side in his music. Songs such as ''Ernie, The Fastest Milkman in the World'' and ''The Laughing Policeman'' are performed to the band's signature melancholic style.

* The opening number of ''Theatre/NextToNormal'' is an upbeat song called "Just Another Day", which is about the apparent stress of each member of the Goodman family, and each of them treating that stress as just a part of their everyday lives, and being determined to hold it all in.
