Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"The Night Chicago Died"
The Lyrics:
And the sound of the battle rang
Through the streets of the old East Side
'Til the last of the hoodlum gang
Had surrendered up or died

There was shouting in the street
And the sound of running feet
And I asked someone who said
'Bout a hundred cops are dead.
Why:
The law-breaking, cop killing 1920s set to a lively jazzy beat. That's the last thing Chicago needs to be reminded of.
