"Oh, Oh, OH, Mr. Darcy....not every a--- has a heart of gold

 This little song is really excellent, and it bears repeated listens!

The unintended irony of the song is that in the shadow story of P&P, even Mr. Darcy HIMSELF remains an a---hole with a heart of stone, not gold, at the end of the novel.

For further evidence of the shadow Darcy’s persistent a—holeness:

A truth RARELY acknowledged: 20 shades of Austen’s Byronic/Miltonic hero/villain Mr. Darcy
