not fooling anyone

A short list of songs that use pleasant harmony and cheerful delivery to mask the actual emotional content, but whose titles kind of give them away.

Crippled Inside – John Lennon
I Wanna Destroy You – Soft Boys
Girlfriend in a Coma – The Smiths
No One Will Ever Love You – The Magnetic Fields
I’m Goin Down – Bruce Springsteen
Help! – The Beatles

I would add Born in The USA (except for the title giving it away thing),maybe "here comes your man," The Cure's "Why Can't I Be You?," and The Go-Betweens "The Ghost and The Black Hat"
