* Music/PaulMcCartney's song "[[TropeNamers Silly Love Songs]]," as quoted above. It's technically by Music/{{Wings}}, but the misattribution is [[IAmTheBand not exactly wrong]].

* Music/PaulMcCartney's song "[[TropeNamers Silly Love Songs]]," as quoted above. It's technically by Music/{{Wings}}, but the misattribution is [[IAmTheBand not exactly wrong]]. He did invert this trope on at least a couple of occasions, with the haunting "Eleanor Rigby" and the raucous "Helter Skelter".

Music critics of the past commonly referred to this sort of song as a "Moon-June song", sometimes with "spoon" added, after the (supposed) [[PainfulRhyme tendency]] for writers of these songs to rhyme the two words together. The originator of this name was likely the 1908 hit ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shine_On,_Harvest_Moon Shine On, Harvest Moon]].''

* Music/TheBeachBoys have done several, but "Little Deuce Coupe" is an oddball one, because it's a love song [[CarSong about a car]].

* [[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.
