another one.. Interstate Love Song, by STP.. sounds happy and is catchy, but really its about Scott worrying about his wife finding out he was on drugs again.. and written from her perspective.

Teacher: What did you all bring to class kids? Student1: I brought my MP3 Student2: I brought a MP4 Student3: I just brought my MP5. Teacher: Oh shi...

How does pumped up kicks sound cheerful. You can literally learn the lyrics listening to it once and it's dark af. The only people I see listening to this thinking it's an up beat song, are little kids, who don't even know what a gun is yet. I still love the song btw, just, I knew it wasn't an upbeat song from the start.

"Jump" by Van Halen, the guy threatening suicide inspired the lyrics, but the song is actually about jumping into love not about suicide.

SuperAngelfish9 (7 days ago)
Pumped up kicks should've been up higher on the list. And Hey Ya should have been more than just an honorable mention. Those two are like the poster children of happy tune/dark lyrics. Good list otherwise though. Even if it did ruin Jump for me.
"La camisa negra" A summer European hit for about 4 years.You heard it and danced it till 2004 until 2008 in every bar or beach in Mediterranean

Is it bad I always imagined a person jumping off a building even before I found out about it? My mind is disturbing at times.

I dont like Monday's by the Boomtown Rats because it was about a school shooting in San Francisco where she shot 10 people 2 dead and 8 injured. When the child was asked why she did it she simply said "I dont like Monday's" either way I like the song.
Daniel Maher (12 hours ago)
