Unintentional irony

One of my favorite songs from college is "Walking on Sunshine." There's a good summary here, from which I'll quote:
"Some music you just shouldn't overanalyze, for fear of taking all the life out of it. "Walking On Sunshine" ... was not ground breaking or especially thought-provoking. It was just an upbeat, catchy dance track with a 1960s pop sound and a message about feeling good..."
However, today I stand amazed at the prescience of the name of the group--Katrina and the Waves--and at the complete irony of the juxtaposition of their name with the title of the song.

There is a list here of places to send help. Or just call the Red Cross at 1-800-HELP NOW (435-7669).
