Playing With: Ode to Intoxication
Basic Trope: A song about how great it is to get drunk or high.
  • Straight: Bob bursts into song about how much he loves beer.
  • Exaggerated: Bob belts out about his love of chocolate with way too much enthusiasm.
  • Downplayed: The song is about how awesome the bar is; the fact that it serves great drink is only one of the virtues Bob praises.
  • Justified: There's a good chance Bob's drunk when he's doing this.
  • Inverted: Ode To Sobriety in its various types.
  • Subverted: It appears that Bob is about to go into a raucous drinking shanty, until he starts singing about how much alchohol has messed up his life.
  • Double Subverted: Then he sings about how much he loves it in the second verse.
  • Parodied: ???
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Bob either doesn't take any judgement-impairing substances, or doesn't sing when he does.
  • Enforced: "You know what kids love? Drugs. Get that rapper out here."
  • Lampshaded: "There's way too many songs out there about people getting drunk and stoned. The nerve!"
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: "Wut... you think I'm gonna' sing?... I *hic* can't stand karaeoke..."
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???

"Rock, the Ode to Intoxication! It's the hit that's sweepin' the nation!"
