* "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" from ''Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian'' is a darkly humorous twist on this, given that it's sung at the finale of the film by ''dying, crucified prisoners''.
* Stan Bush's unapologetically idealistic and inspirational "The Touch" from ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'', which serves as the theme song for the noble and heroic Optimus Prime. Relatedly, there's "Dare," which seems to serve the same role for the young and impetuous Hot Rod.

* "Marry the Mole" from ''WesternAnimation/{{Thumbelina|1994}}'' is a strange twist on this. While Miss Field Mouse thinks she's giving Thumbelina good advice and encouragement, she's also telling her to marry someone for their money and that love is over-rated.
** "Follow Your Heart" from the same film is a more straight-forward example.

* In ''Series/NewGirl'', one of Jess's quirks is her tendency to give ''herself'' songs meant to boost her own confidence.

* From ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'', [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brzZQBSVMX0 "Face Your Fears"]] is a complete parody of this. It starts out normal and then just goes ''off the rails'':
-->''If a bear runs at you in the woods,\\
Don’t run away.\\
Look it deep in the eyes,\\
Put your hand on its chest, and say\\
“Bear, I’m not afraid!”''
** The Pep Talk Song Parody is a speciality of this show. "Women Gotta Stick Together" is full of general statements about how women need to be there for each other, as well as nasty insults to every woman the singer runs into during the song. "Put Yourself First" is about putting yourself first, so that guys will find you sexy, which will make you feel empowered:
--->''Put yourself first, girl,\\
Worry about yourself.\\
Make yourself sexy\\
Just for yourself\\
So when dudes see you put yourself first,\\
They’ll be like, "Damn, you’re hot, wanna make out?"''
** Season 3 brings along "Miracle of Birth", in which Paula tries to reassure a very-pregnant Heather that giving birth will be a wonderful experience -- by telling her about all of the horrific aspects of it, set to a [[LyricalDissonance pleasant folk melody]].
--->''Burn, burn, burn goes your vagina,\\
And you'll curse and scream until you hear a cry!\\
And oops, there it went-a,\\
That was your placenta,\\
Which you must expel, or you will surely die.''

* "Heart" from ''Theatre/DamnYankees''.
* "On The Right Track" from ''Theatre/{{Pippin}}'', which the [[LemonyNarrator Leading Player]] steps in to sing when Pippin is starting to sense that [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption he can't win at anything he tries]].

* "Ya Got Me" from ''Theatre/OnTheTown'', sung by Claire, Hily, Chip and Ozzie to cheer Gabey up.
* The last big production number of ''Theatre/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'', "A Little Me", is this directed at Charlie Bucket, who doesn't think he has what it takes to be Willy Wonka's successor, since he has no experience in being a chocolatier (much less a business owner). It's Wonka himself who explains that the boy's inexperience means he can not only learn but become a unique, open-minded talent in the process. He goes on to explain that Charlie is [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre better than he thinks he is]], being a bright, kind, unspoiled, creative child -- an opinion backed up by the Oompa-Loompas and Charlie's own family, who join in on the song.

* ''The Lightning Thief'', the musical adaptation of the first book in the Theatre/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians series, has "Strong", sung by Percy's mom to cheer Percy up from getting expelled again. The first part of "Thier Sign" could count, too, as it's Chiron telling Percy to have faith in the gods that things will be all right after his mom has vanished/died.
* In the tryouts of ''Theatre/MyFairLady'', Professor Higgins had "Come to the Ball," where he attempts to psych Eliza up before she tries to pass herself off as a high-society lady at the [[DancesAndBalls Embassy Ball]]. The song [[CutSong was cut]] due to the show being over-long, though a portion of it is quoted in another number in what was originally supposed to be a [[DarkReprise dark reprise]].

[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin poo's cycle in the enviornment]], to his son, who feels depressed about how he feels useless because he's poo. He later admits his son is actually right and only sang the song to get him to stop bitching.
