Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics, The Rolling Stones

Check out the index.

Beggars Banquet album at
The Rolling Stones', "It's Only Rock And Roll"
The Lyrics:
If I could stick my hand in my heart
Spill it all, over the floor!
Need I say more? A sick song disguised as a good time song!
Submitted by: Art
The Rolling Stones', "Midnight Rambler"
The Lyrics:
I'll stick my knife right down your throat baby
And it hurts.
Perhaps the most upbeat song about a serial killer ever.
Submitted by: Brit Boxx
The Rolling Stones', "Paint It Black"
The Lyrics:
I see a red door and I want to paint it black,
No colors anymore, I want them to turn black.
This whole song has a Spanish/Hindu/Middle Eastern feel (with the sitar and castanets); it is a song about a lost girlfriend.
Submitted by: Paul Warren
The Rolling Stones', "Sympathy For The Devil"
The Lyrics:
I shouted out 'Who killed the Kennedys?'
When after all it was you and me!
Pretty much all the lyrics are depressing, but this one can be especially depressing and upsetting for Americans or the Kennedy family. I guess that the tune is upbeat for the most part.
