* Played with in the full version of the theme to ''Series/{{Cheers}}'', "Everybody Knows Your Name". The song's melody is quite uplifting and sweet, but the lyrics describe increasingly depressing things happening to the subject of the song. However, the point of the chorus is that it's nice to have a place to go where you can escape your troubles, where you feel safe and loved and where [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin everybody knows your name]].

** And we can't forget Glee's choice for a graduation song, GloryDays by BruceSpringsteen. The problem? It's about a bunch of people who look back fondly at their high school years while wallowing in the drunken monotony of their adult lives.

* Don Bluth's adaptation of ''WesternAnimation/{{Thumbelina}}'' has a song with the following lyrics:
--> '''Mrs. Fieldmouse:''' Here comes the bride\\
is a lovely little ditty but marrying for love is a foolish thing to do
-->cause love won't pay the mortgage \\
or put porridge in your bowl\\
dearie marry the mole\\
true it's a fact that\\
he's not exactly witty\\
he's blinder than a bat\\
but at least his eyes are blue\\
His breath may be alarming but he's charming, for a troll
-->Dearie, marry the mole.
-->Romeo and Juliet\\
Were very much in love when they were wed.\\
They honored every vow and where are they now?\\
THEY'RE DEAD! DEAD! VERY VERY DEAD.\\
Poor Thumbelina\\
Your brains' so itty bitty\\
I hate to seem a pest\\
but I know what's best for you.
-->Just think of all the ways that you can decorate a hole.\\
Take my advice\\
I'll bring the rice.\\

* "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.

Just look at the way the lyrics [[MoodWhiplash swerve]]...
-->''I'm too shiny\\
Watch me dazzle like a diamond in the rough\\
Strut my stuff, my stuff is so shiny\\
Send your armies but they'll never be enough\\
My shell's too tough\\
Maui man, you can try try try\\
But you can't expect a demigod to beat a decapod (look it up!)\\
You will die die die\\
Now it's time for me to take apart your aching heart''

-->''Maui, now it's time to kick your heinie\\
Ever seen someone so shiny?\\
Soak it in 'cause it's the last you'll ever see\\
C'est la vie, mon ami\\
I'm so shiny\\
Now I eat you so prepare your final plea\\
Just for me''

** [[https://youtu.be/oB_lKI1o754 "Your Best Friend"]], Flowey's VillainSong. Fitting his general character, it sounds like something from Barney or other kid's show...but has lyrics about his [[SocialDarwinist twisted worldview and how he wants to murder the protagonist.]] [[https://youtu.be/hnHS6_PLDrw The later reprise]] qualifies even more so, as he completely drops all pretense of benevolent and is entirely about his evil intentions.
** Flowey even keeps this up when he [[spoiler:[[OneWingedAngel becomes Omega Flowey]] and sings "[[https://youtu.be/z5yxcwrQkgY Your Best Nightmare]]", keeping the same style of singing while singing about his murderous intentions to murder Frisk over and over and become a God.]]
