Secretly depressing

CBC have created a YouTube playlist of secretly depressing songs.

Songs that, as you're dancing to them, you suddenly realise have crushing lyrics.

It's not a bad list, but somewhat oddly, they include Girlfriend In A Coma.

Secretly depressing? It's a Smiths song for a start, which surely means if you'd never heard it you'd swallow hard before pressing play.

More importantly, it's called Girlfriend In A Coma. Surely nobody playing a song called Girlfriend In A Coma is going to be surprised it doesn't turn out to be a partner piece to If You're Happy And You Know It?
