* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] by ''Matt Fishel's'' "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogsbUiSY2TU Radio-Friendly Pop Song]]". It tells the story of a young artist, whose producer tells him he was "a talented guy" who could be very sucessful... if only his songs were'nt gay themed. (''But this is an industry where people make money, so your art has to sell/ And you should never seek to challenge an audience/ They buy what they're told and we never get it wrong/ Go write us a non-offensive, tasteful, conventional song...) This implies the tast of the audience is limited to Silly Love songs with [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday very heterosexual pairings]]. The chorus is itself a parody to this concept, since this are the producers only requirements for a song. (Girls like boys and boys like girls/ And that's the way it should be/ Forever) The song inverts both: It's neither a love song to a specific person at all nor is it heterosexual themed, but instead adressing the pressure of gay (male) artists to reamain closeted to be sucessful.

* Music/TheyMightBeGiants' "Pet Name" musically sounds like this, except that if you listen to the lyrics, you'll realize it's a song about a couple who are utterly sick of each other but mask it behind a sentimental facade. They do, however, have one straightforward example: "Another First Kiss." They themselves describe it as pretty much the only straight love song they've ever done, but in their typical style, it's a ([[WordOfGod their words]]) "Screw that" to the idea that you need to be young to be in love and instead depicts a [[HappilyMarried happy couple with history.]]

* When Music/TheAquabats do silly love songs, the emphasis is usually on "silly", from the ska-punk love ballad "Red Sweater!" ("[[DamnedByFaintPraise You're not fat, you don't smell bad]] / You're always smiling, never sad") to the pop-sounding "Lovers of Loving Love!" to the [[MundaneMadeAwesome mock-epic]] "The Legend is True!"

* Creator/MitchBenn has written a few of these, as well as {{Anti Love Song}}s. "Disgustingly in Love" is positive for the couple, if not [[SickeninglySweethearts anyone around them]]; "My Girlfriend is an Alien" has the singer conclude that he doesn't mind; and "One of These Days" is so sincere it's barely funny at all.
