in Happiness Is A Warm Gun I find a contradictory line.

 

I know nobody could do me harm, because happines is a warm gun.

 

Ok maybe John didn't mean this, but I feel that sometimes the people who can hurt you the most are the ones you love the most. So, when you feel safer in the arms of the person you love, there's a chance this very same person can hurt your feelings deeply.

 

So I read that happines is a warm gun because you feel safe and vulnerable. the perfect moment to get your heart destroyed.

 

(And I'm not bitter!!!)

The following people thank mithveaen for this post:

Well, in "Please Please Me," they (The Beatles as a whole) are saying they want their women to please them, oh yeah, like they please her. But on A Hard Day's Night, they are content with dancing with them.

No, I'm not. I'm realistic. That's what you learn when you're 40 a-hard-days-night-john-1

 

Naw you have to accept that when you are in a love relationship, things might go wrong. If you take this simple fact, then you can enjoy your love life even more, because you don't take things for granted and you have to learn to take care of your relationship. So, happinnes is a warm gun because you can take for granted the people you love, but then you can hurt them or you can be hurt by them. Happiness can go away like this. *snapping fingers*

 

So if that makes me bitter, so be it. Love is not living on cotton candy. You have to work for it. My parents did and they loved each other until my Mom died. My sister did, and after 20 years she's going through a bitter divorce. So, you never know what you're going to get my friend.

 

And going back in topic (or kind of) I remember seeing in some Spanish spoken forums some fans having very visceral reactions when someone mentions that John and Yoko had problems. They slam the poor poster saying "But they were the perfect lovers!! The toppermost of the lovermost!". I mean, I know they were soul mates but I don't understand why idealizing their love relationship. I mean, I can understand why John is now considered a Saint, but John and Yoko… I dunno, it's just too much.

 

Have you seen this in other places? (or maybe this need a topic of its own)

Actually my whole explanation was also being myself  John. God knows I think of love as candy-hearts, holding hands, chocolates and seeing the life in pink.a-hard-days-night-john-1

They had probably given up asking, because at some point all men must realize that you only get certain things on special occasions like your birthday. Fortunately my birthday is coming up (in six months a-hard-days-night-ringo-14).

Nope. blue-meanie

 

Ok you convinced me. But I'm lame telling jokes so don't shoot me if you think it's bad.

 

There's a professor talking about how to have a healthy sex life. He was saying that the more often you had sex, the happier you were. And to prove his point, he starts asking to the audience

"Ok raise your hands the ones who have sex every night" And a large group of men raise their hands with a very smiling faces.

"Ok now, raise your hands the ones who have sex every other night" and another large group of men raise their hands, with a some how smiling faces.

and the professor goes on, and the less frequency he said, the grumpiest faces of the men raising hands. Finally he says "Ok, now is there anybody here who has sex once in a year?"

And a guy starts shouting and jumping all happy saying "I do!! I do!! I have sex once in a year!!!" Of course the professor is all surprised asks him "But why are you so happy?" And the guy "Because I get sex as a birthday gift.. and today is my birthday!!!"

 

OK cue to laughs... a-hard-days-night-ringo-9

"Can't Buy Me Love" is Paul. "Money" is a cover.

"Living is easy with eyes closed/Misunderstanding all you see" – would that be "all you see with your eyes closed", then?


M3- I want sex… actually, dancing will do.
 

Von Bontee- actually, yes. There are several ways to take that line. My current favourite is "misunderstanding nothing"- so you understand everything, so living is easy.

Heehee- 6+9.
