(I saw mother mother in here and I love it.)
I'd say "Oh Anna." By mother mother could be considered upbeat, at least part of it.


I Don't Wanna Be a Billionaire – Theo Katzman
It's not necessarily dark, but it is kinda sad and mirrors the current state of the world in terms of money.

Evan Landon

Share Your Address - Ben Platt

My friend and I agreed that this song sounds amazing, really cool, then you listen to the lyrics and it's like WOAH WOAH HOLD UP. Not exactly dark lyrics, just… weird..

Raising The Dead by Jessica Law
Everybody Wants to Rule the World by Tears for Fears


They're definitely upbeat, but the actual lyrics(translations of the lyrics, I guess) of Ikanaide and Deathly Loneliness Attacks are pretty sad. Not dark, but a lot sadder than they sound. tbh I really relate to Deathly Loneliness which is probably not the best
