Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics, Nigel Olsson

Check out the index.

Golden Classics Edition album at
Nigel Olsson's, "A Little Bit Of Soap"
The Lyrics:
A little bit of soap will never never ever erase, the pain in my heart, in my eye, as I go through the lonely years.
A little bit of soap will never wash away my tears.
There's also some other versions of this song (and Olsson's version is my favorite). But in this one at least, while the lyrics are about a man saying he'll never get over his girlfriend breaking up with him, the music is catchy, bouncy and very happy and upbeat, it really makes you want to dance. Quite the opposite of the song's lyrics.
