Why isn't this trope called "Soundtrack Counterpoint"? Isn't counterpoint the actual term for this? Soundtrack Dissonance could be interpreted to mean an unmelodious or even cacophonous soundtrack. Soundtrack Counterpoint (or even just Counterpoint) should at the very least be an title redirect for sake of searching.

That's not what counterpoint means at all. Counterpoint refers to two or more voices that are polyphonic but with unrelated rhythm. It does not at all refer to two items that don't match.

Should we add a redirect for "Musical Dissonance" to this?

Hey, it's checks out right now, but how 'bout we change "you went to NYU Film School, dammit" to "you went to Tisch, dammit?" Because, you know, it's always kinda nice to refer to things by their proper names.

I originally added the first part of this example. I don't remember who added the reply, but it made me rethink this, and I realized that the song actually fits perfectly. So I've cut it from here, and added it to Fridge Brilliance.

  • Cave Story. The main theme is a jaunty little tune. Besides the title screen, it plays exactly at exactly one place in-game: the Plantation. Here, the kidnapped Mimigas are being forced by the Big Bad to grow and harvest the Demon Flowers... flowers which will turn the Mimigas into mindless monsters.
    • Still a rather defining moment in the whole game. Great potential for the player has been reached, the plot is at its heigth, and it's easily the biggest stage map (and right before the final stage). As jaunty as the main theme may be, it fits the stage pretty well.

I'm not a fan of the Newly-Popular Updating page quotes, but the Nostalgia Critic quote (from about a week ago as of this writing) fits really well. Cheers.
