Your "go to" Beatles' song when you are sad/angry.

Maybe it is too easy to get guns in America, but that's kind of the point of the second amendment.

No, reading it as a foreigner, without any of the baggage Americans carry about the 2nd Amendment, it is about the ability without a Standing Army to be able to defend against external aggression, via the use of Minutemen. How many gun owners in America now are affiliated to a State militia?

Another point I did not bring up earlier was your line, "If somebody gonna go kill a couple dozen six year olds, they gonna go kill a couple dozen six year olds. Would you rather these people use machetes or hammers to kill all these people?"

In the UK, we had that machete attack. Here is the Wikipedia description:

"Shortly after 3 PM on July 8, 1996, parents and teachers at St. Luke's School were organizing a teddy bear picnic to celebrate the end of the school term. A man described as being in his mid-30s with a slight build who parents saw hanging around the bushes prior to the attack, jumped over a fence surrounding the children's play area and pulled out a large machete. As parents attempted to distract and stop the attacker, he calmly began slashing the machete indiscriminately at the adults and children. Three children and four adults, most notably Lisa Potts, were injured in the attack. Potts was a 21-year old teacher at the school who suffered cuts to her head, back, arms, and one of her arms was almost severed in the attack. A parent chased the man out of the area towards a housing area known as Villiers Flats. Police surrounded the area, and approximately two hours later took away a man who turned out to be someone other than the assailant. On the following day, after hours of searching the area, police arrested 32-year old Horrace Irving Campbell in connection with the attack."

Note, not one life ended, many damaged but none ended. Had our gun laws allowed him to buy a gun, there would have been deaths.

Back on topic, Magical Mystery Tour is another cheer-up song when I'm down, and Hello Goodbye  (love the outro to that!) always forces a smile.

We have the right to bear arms as a "just in case the government wants to try and become a dictatorship" type of thing.

Yeah, that was one incident, and that guy wasn't very smart about it, either. He did it outside with parents there. That's much different than going into a classroom with one teacher and thirty kids who don't really have anywhere to go to.

 

Anyhowdy, I don't really have a go-to Beatles song that cheers me up. Yesterday probably makes me the happiest of all their songs. Every time I listen to Yesterday I get a surplus of happiness that's crazy intense. I could listen to it ten times in a row and it does it to me every time.

Interesting. I find that Yesterday makes me sad sometimes.

Those sorts of songs.

yep those types of songs for me as well when I am angry, I also like listening to helter skelter as it makes me get all my anger out. Sometimes when I just feel sad I listen to girl or For You Blue but Here Comes The Sun also always cheers me up.So does doctor roberts I don't know why I just always think there is something quite humorous about it.

When I'm sad I listen to Abbey Road, especially side B, and maybe Hey Jude (it seems I never get bored of it even after 10000 listens...)

One day I was very angry and nervous about things I had to do the next morning, I literally felt like I could kill someone. Then I listened to All Things Must Pass (the entire album) hoping it could help calm me down a bit... and it worked :D

I try not to listen to the Beatles when I'm sad or angry or over-emotional, becuase I like to just be able to focus on the music....having said that, I find Misery and Baby It's You calming, and I always listen to Mull of Kinyre before an exam to stop me worrying, and remind me that whatever happens, Paul will have written a good sing-a-long song to make everything alright. a-hard-days-night-paul-8

Honestly, I just listen to the entire "Beatles For Sale" album when I'm sad.

As for when I'm angry, usually Helter Skelter.

I tend to play the really, really loud/shouty, high-tempo songs at full volume when I'm anxious, just like I am now. These are the ones I include:

Amongst many more.

I go to some good early stuff when I'm sad. Like Please Please Me or Beatles for Sale. "1 2 3 4!" I start grinning as soon as I hear that. That's the power of good rock and roll I suppose. 

Then I also like to listen to Live At The BBC when I'm Down (pun intended) 

like this little announcement, followed by You Really Got A Hold On Me, can cure any blues

"Yesterday" doesn't make me sad, but it doesn't exactly makes me happy either. I love "Yesterday" and I suppose it just always makes me feel amazed with the song's beauty and Paul's voice (nobody else could sing such a music and make it sound so perfect and enchanting!). 

If I'm sad, let's see... "Hey Jude" and "Let it Be", I guess, but, in some moments of my life, "The Fool On The Hill" and "Across The Universe" were very important when I was sad. If I'm angry, I don't know, really... Sorry.

@Beatlesneverdie I see you've been here a few days, why don't you introduce yourself here!

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

My go-to songs when I’m sad would be Yes, It Is (it seems as though The Beatles knew what would happen to me decades later) and The Long And Winding Road (which I know many people find tedious, but I see as a great song about loss). I don’t use the songs to try to change my mood; it’s more like catharsis. The same way, when I’m angry, I listen to I Am The Walrus (John seemed to have written it, and sung it, while being playful yet angry himself).

Abbey Road definitely when I'm sad. It's an encyclopedia of human feelings. You can't go wrong with this masterpiece.

 

I also have to mention Beatles For Sale - with songs No Reply, I'm a Loser, I Don't Want To Spoil The Party and my favorite What You're doing - they all "touch" me sometimes in a special way.

happiness is a warm gun...

What?  I though the lyrics where: A Penis Is A Warm Gun??????  Sing it, you'll see.

Seriously, just putting on the Red 1962-66 album is a game changer for me.  Great feel good music! heart
