Added DiffLines:

** The sequel, ''Film/KingsmanTheGoldenCircle'' continues the trend, setting the heroe's assault on the villains' base to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26wEWSUUsUc Elton John's "Saturday Nights Alright For Fighting"]] and the final fight is set to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYuQWO3NsFI The BossHoss's cover of Cameo's "Word Up"]].

Added DiffLines:

* PlayedForLaughs in the opening credits of ''Film/DrStrangelove'', in which sweet, romantic music is played over stock footage of planes refueling mid-air, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything making it feel like softcore porn]]. Later, “We’ll Meet Again” by Vera Lynn plays as [[spoiler:[[BlackComedy the entire world is blown up by nukes]].]]


** ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'' provides a video example of this trope. As BigBad Karl Stromberg feeds one of his traitorous assistants to his pet sharks, a sample of Bach's ''Air on the G-String'' is played.

* ''Film/GoodMorningVietnam'' while arguably a film based on soundtrack dissonance with Creator/RobinWilliams Adrian Cronauer cracking jokes and playing The Beach Boys over Vietnam B-roll. Features this trope most prominently in a scene after Adrian decides to host the radio show again, Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" plays over Vietnamese Villages being bombed and buildings burning. Man That song is used so much in this trope it probably deserves it's own pag- Oh would you look at that here it is: SoundtrackDissonance/WhataWonderfulWorld I realise now that this was not missing I will show myself out

Added DiffLines:

** Played straight when they play Barry Manilow's "Copacobana" as they break the dam.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/BoyzNTheHood'', the infamous revenge scene in which three people are murdered is set to a score of smooth jazz.

Added DiffLines:

* The infamous driver's ed scare film ''Signal 30'' and its sequel ''Mechanized Death'' both use jaunty stock cues to accompany footage of gruesome car accidents.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/MeanGuns'': Many scenes of killings and violent shoot-outs or meelee fights are accompanied by delightful mambo music.


* In ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'', Dr. Bruttenholm resigns himself to his murder while "We'll Meet Again" plays on a phonograph across the room, in a shoutout to ''Dr. Strangelove''.

* InUniverse in ''Fat Man & Little Boy'' (1998). Light upbeat music plays during the countdown to the first nuclear explosion in history because of interference from a local station on the same radio frequency used by those doing the test.

* Done in the first Creator/TimBurton ''{{Film/Batman}}'' film. When the Joker shoots Boss Grissom, cheerful circus carnival music plays as he hams it up and starts firing his gun like a trigger-happy cowboy while laughing gleefully. It's what effectively redefines him as the Joker, but that moment is obviously a case of DudeNotFunny in true Joker fashion. Adding that whimsical circus theme just seethes BlackComedy up the wazoo. It also happens right after Joker gasses out an entire museum to "meet" (kidnap) Vicki Vale undeterred, then bursts onto the scene, with a thug holding a boombox. When he clicks it on, Prince's "Partyman" blares as Joker and his cohorts deface and destroy enough works of art in the museum to make Michelangelo cry a river. The same music from when the Joker murders Grissom also plays during Batman's fight with the last batch of the Joker's goons late in the film.
