Quotes: Soundtrack Dissonance

In Heaven, everything is fine.
In Heaven, everything is fine.
You've got your good things. And I've got mine.

"Hey, wait a minute, you can't use 'Amazing Grace' in a Devil movie!"

"A capella gospel with scenes of violence! It's brilliant!"''

"Should peppy music really accompany your film's darkest, most disturbing scene? I suppose if Tarantino did it, people would laud the ironic juxtaposition, but this is Coleman Francis. Anything that appears to be a glimmer of brilliance is always pure happenstance."

Chris: “Nails, get the riot guns from the guards! Bill, you flip over the mattresses and barricade the doors! Hammer, you find us a CD player so we can rock out to this week’s hottest Warner Bros. Records recording artists!”
David: I’m pretty sure I would have committed suicide ten years ago if I had to have my life scored by whoever chooses the songs for Smallville.
Chris Sims and David Uzumeri, on Smallville ("Transference")

Asuka: Shinji, you suck.
Shinji: Yeah? Well, let's see how you feel after I strangle you. Cue the light, happy jazz-pop!

"This is so romantic. Love to take my girlfriend on a gondola ride to this."
YouTube comment, on a video for Nile - Cast Down The Heretic

"I've never seen a song so poorly matched up. You got monsters with weapons for hands, a young woman fleeing with fear, chasing into a creepy forest and a chicken who's a fucking AX! Are those really the images that come to your mind when you hear this song? If so, then you're fucked!"

Officer Lockstock: Like I said, Little Sally. This isn't a happy musical.
Little Sally: But the music's so happy!
Officer Lockstock: Yes, Little Sally. Yes it is.
Urinetown, "I See A River"

"Oh, dang, listen to that...Look, it's all well and good to have moody music, but for Pete's sake, man- you gotta know when- where- to put it! And you don't put it when I'm just having a conversation with the nerdy kid!"
Let's Player Suede bemoaning the rotating soundtrack in Nancy Drew: Shadow at the Water's Edge

It doesn't fit Dr Wily at all!
It makes the tower sound like a theme park,
It doesn't make any sense.
Roahm Mythril, singing mock-lyrics to the second Wily stage theme in The Wily Wars.


Try to avoid the landmines on the way back to the main trope as "Yakety Sax" plays in the background.
