Really, I avoid the Beatles if I'm sad/angry. I'll go either Florence and the Machine, Arcade Fire or Feist - because their music is more fitting. For me, and strictly me, if I'm in a bad mood, I need calm, not four love-is-awesome lads. Just me.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Hmmm...if you like to listen to calm music when you're in a bad mood, perhaps you can try City and Colour or Fleet Foxes? Based on the bands you listed above, they sound like they could have potential. Or even Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. Noah and the Whale are an excellent band as well, and would be a good choice if you like listening to kind of sad music. Although NATW has a way of making sad songs uplifting...but hey, who doesn't need some encouragement during bad times? a-hard-days-night-george-10

Anyhows, back on the actual topic of songs by The Beatles that we would listen to when we are sad/angry--not all of their songs are "love-is-awesome". Like I said earlier, I tend to lean towards songs like "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)", "Girl", and "Nowhere Man", and I would consider those all to be calm songs with messages that are also very non-"love-is-great". I know preferences are preferences (and your preferences seem chosen with excellent taste!), but you may find yourself coming to The Beatles during bad times one of these days. Maybe (I mean, everyone knows what to do for themselves in bad times better than anyone). Or you can just stick to your awesome alternative music! ahdn_george_06

You know City and Colour? I have a feeling we shall get along swimmingly.
Actually, I somewhat lied - I play Michelle quite a bit when I'm sad. Must be something about my Montreal blood (and Montreal love - Montreal is the coolest city in Canada, hands down) that makes me turn to that. And no, I didn't mean to imply all Beatles songs are a homogenous blend of love-is-great messages. Actually, if I play them, I'll go to Rubber Soul - it has wit, soul, meaning and talent - lovely album for the bad times.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8With all of the things we seem to have in common already, I can't help but think: "I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together"! Haha.

To both topics on this thread: yes, the movie massacre was terrible.  I have a pen pal in Japan, and she'd heard about it on her news: that's how far the story has spread.  Can you imagine what it must have been like to be one of the people in that theater?

 

And my go-to Beatles song is usually "I Saw Her Standing There", which always manages to cheer me up.

Cry Baby Cry has always made me feel better when I was sad. I don't know, John's voice always cheers me up in that song. a-hard-days-night-john-3

I just spent an emotionally draining day in court (I've been suing my ex-wife for two years to get proper access to my children after my lawyer botched our Separation Agreement).

I know one thing that will make me better:  I'm gonna get a pizza, drink a beer or 6, use my vaporizer (see my thread about that!) and watch the Blu-Ray of 'A Hard Day's Night', which looks and sounds amazing and always makes me very happy.

E is for 'Ergent'.

I've found that Cry Baby Cry calms me down, too. :O
Then, after I've calmed down, I listen to Penny Lane, which makes me smile. :)

Any song that is relaxing usually calms me down if I´m upset (I rarely get angry) or alternatively, a song like Helter Skelter does the trick as well, can´t really say why, I´m still trying to work that out.

If I'm sad I hardly ever listen to music, I watch episodes of how i met your mother and simpsons, mainly my favourite episodes; they cheer me up. Sometimes I listen to Blackbird, though. I can't listen to rock songs when I'm sad and ballads often make me even sadder. Only blackbird is okay. When I'm angry I listen to loud hard music and sing to it, often helter skelter or junior's farm but also often nirvana or stones

Sorry sat (an himself) but what is a vaporizer. I have nevr heard this word before (english is not my native language and I'm only 13), what does it mean?

I find Nirvana helps me when I'm sad, too.
It also seems like I listen to a lot of George songs when I'm sad, especially Long Long Long and the Anthology version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps. I often find myself listening to Isn't it a Pity when I'm upset; the ending is so hypnotic, I don't even notice anything around me when I'm listening to it.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 How does Nirvana help? I mean, good on you of they help, and you can feel perfectly entitled to not take regard to the rest of this, but how on earth does Nirvana, an angry, pissed off at the establishment band make you happy?

(Wait, figured it out - maybe) Is it that Nirvana is so not uplifting, that it uplifts you? Please, I'm genuinely confused here.

It doesn't help me when I'm sad, but when I'm angry it certainly helps.
It's the same thing as all these people saying they listen to Helter Skelter when they're mad; an angry song/band helps get angry emotions out, I guess.

"For No One" has been my go-to song for a while now. I've always loved the musicality of it, and now it definitely has so much meaning for me. I imagine myself playing it on full blast for my ex and his new girlfriend and the thought of that always cheers me up :D

I like to listen to helter skelter and run around if I need to blow off steam.

Whenever I listen to any of their music, it just always centers me and puts me back in my "happy place." I especially love Sgt. Pepper.

I´ve always thought that For No One was about a woman who was very independent and didn´t need a man to make her feel happy. I have never read that anywhere it´s just what always springs into my mind.
