When i say vocaloid I mostly mean Hatsune Miku and the Kagamins'. I mean I really love the more upbeat and "happy sounding" songs like Ai Kotoba and Yellow and Strobo Nights but then you have songs like Dark Wood Forest (which i do know is about...*ughhh*) and then there is the evil songs by the Kagamins' and everything just gets weirder and creepier all the time.

I know I dont have all the info on whats going on here, and i didn't discover them until only two or so years ago, but I could really use a good explanation about whats going on. I mean, from someone that REALLY knows whats going on and why. Thanks

Heard some inside info:
The vocaloids...They're not even human!

Since there's a lot of different people using vocaloid and Miku, Rin and Len are among the most popular, it's only natural that there's great differences between some songs. But that what's so great about Vocaloid

Vocaloid is software that generates a computer singing in Japanese. Anyone can use it and make any song from it, so eventually there are going to be some dark ones. You never know, someone might eventually use it for a metal song or something.

from my perspective it's how vocaloid is used to express what the Producers want to make.
it's a freedom of usage by the users for users. some may strive for uniqueness thus the weird themes of songs

some examples on top of my head........not very happy songs but
sasakure.UK - Hello Planet [Miku] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rI39Y1OXzW4
his songs are always complex for me to understand fully x_x

Nashimoto Ui - Shinitagari/Death Wish [Miku] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxSmhDfuAxY
he does a lot of traditional rebellious rock songs

Travolta-P - Kokoro [Rin] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPnv8QBa2Rw
vocaloid given a voice; virtual singer having a human heart?

in the end they are songs, and Vocaloid allows diverse range of music genre to be sung by these voice synths
if they only do happy/upbeat songs i'd probably hav gone bored with Vocaloid
