* Music/TheDoors are made of this. Songs like "Break on Through (to the Other Side)", "The End", "People Are Strange", and "When the Music's Over" are only a few of the many examples from all the songs they wrote.

* OlderThanSteam: [[Music/JohannSebastianBach J. S. Bach]], of all people. He wrote a cantata about coffee! Coffee addiction was the [[TheNewRockAndRoll moral panic du jour]] in 18th century Leipzig, so Bach wrote a musical piece in favor of the drink: ''Schweigt stille, plaudert nicht'' ("Be still, stop chattering") (BWV 211), better known as the "Coffee cantata." The story concerns a young woman who is in love with coffee. Her father attempts to bribe her out of the habit by promising to find her a husband if she gives it up, to which she agrees. She ends up getting her way after all, by secretly telling her suitors that [[LysistrataGambit she will only marry them if they allow her to drink coffee]].

* [[Music/TheyMightBeGiants How about turning up a thermostat? And a rock to wind a piece of string around? Or waiting for dinner?]]

* [[Music/TheyMightBeGiants How about turning up Music/TheyMightBeGiants:
** In "We Want
a thermostat? And a Rock", the act of wanting "a rock to wind a piece of string around? Or around" or "a prosthetic forehead on your real head" is apparently an act of radical rebellion against those who "want to burn the playhouse down".
** "Thermostat" is a energetic, jazzy song about... adjusting the thermostat.
** "Dinner Bell", a bouncy and energetic song about
waiting for dinner?]]dinner (and/or classical conditioning).

-->June the fourth, 1973, was much like any other day on Dalzell Street, Peterblur. And Ralph Mellish, a file clerk for an insurance company, was on his way to work, when...(''dramatic sting'') nothing happened. Scarcely able to believe his eyes, Ralph Mellish looked down. But one glance confirmed his suspicions. Behind the bush by the side of the road, there was no severed arm. No dismembered trunk of a man in his 50s. No head in a bag. Nothing. Not a sausage.

* The guy singing [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuRuwR2JSXI "I'm Reading A Book"]] takes his reading a lot more seriously than he should.

* ''Music/TheAquabats'' seem to love writing epic songs about relatively mundane things:
** "CD Repo Man!" is a song about a ruthless mercenary... whose job it is to break into people's houses and steal back borrowed music [=CDs=].
--->''With CD Repo Man, that guy is on a roll\\
He'll jump through windows to get back what those suckers stole\\
He looks tame, but you know he will attack\\
He does his job to get your [=CDs=] back!''
** "Dear Spike!" is a comically enthusiastic thank-you note, based on a real letter written by an Aquacadet, to the delivery-man who brought him his fan-club package.
** "I Fell Asleep On My Arm!" is a NuMetal parody about a guy freaking out when his arm falls asleep in class.
** "The Baker!" makes being a baker sound downright epic.
--->''Up in the morning to start my work\\
I cannot help wanting to bake a dessert\\
Like a gladiator about to meet his fate\\
I enter the arena, bow my head, and start to bake''
** "Poppin' A Wheelie!" is a song about a guy who is really enthusiastic about the simple pleasure of doing wheelies on his bicycle.
--->''When you see me outside with my wind-swept hair\\
Riding by with my wheel in the air\\
You'll never see me happier, you'll never see me happier\\
Than when I pull those handlebars and get 'em in the air!''
