* For a long while, Carnival Cruise Line was using the chorus from Music/IggyPop's ''Music/LustForLife'' as background music to their commercials showing happy families having fun during a Caribbean cruise. Forgotten in all the bright colors and good cheer is the fact that the song is about living with a serious heroin addiction and how said addiction almost killed Iggy Pop. The song was also used in a motivational feel-good advert for {{NZ}}-brewed Steinlager beer during the 1990s.

Added DiffLines:

* "Shiny" from ''{{Disney/Moana}}'' veers back in forth in tone between the menacing tones of a VillainSong... and upbeat 70s glam rock. While most of the song consists of {{Badass Boast}}s that fit the tone of both halves, Tamatoa's intent to kill and eat the heroes is mostly expressed in the bouncy parts, and the lyrics do not at all sugarcoat this desire.

* RichardCheese [[LoungeLizard swanks out]] a cover of Disturbed's "Down With The Sickness" in the 2004 remake of ''Film/DawnOfTheDead2004''. This is, of course, his entire schtick.

* Lana Del Ray's cover of 'Once Upon A Dream' for 2014's ''Maleficent'' takes the sweet, happy Disney love song and gives it a creepy new feeling.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Hoodwinked}}'' has Boingo's VillainSong, "Top of the Woods," a song about oppressing other creatures, getting children addicted to junk food, and becoming a ruthless dictator, all to an upbeat jazz melody that wouldn't be out of place in Splash Mountain.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Theater/{{Ruddigore}}'' has "You Understand". It's one of the bounciest songs in the show, a duet between two men plotting to crash a wedding, break up the happy couple, and reveal to everyone that the groom is really the local Bad Baronet.

to:

* "Let It Go" from ''{{Disney/Frozen}}'', an uplifting-sounding song by Elsa about finally accepting her powers... which is also about choosing to live a life in isolation and cut herself off from the world. Ironically enough that's ''inverted'' on a meta-level, seeing as by many people it's viewed as an empowerment anthem and has actually encouraged many, which is arguably the ''opposite'' of what some dissonance may suggest it means for Elsa. Also of note is that it was originally meant to be a VillainSong before the story was changed, and the song led people to treat it as... well, the exact opposite. Irony at its finest.

Sub-trope to MoodDissonance. Compare to SoundtrackDissonance. May lead to IsntItIronic, if the song is used in a place where the people who selected it didn't listen to the lyrics very well. As one of the folders in this page shows, it might be related to TheCoverChangesTheMeaning.
