I don't think I listen to music when I'm angry. But when I'm sad, right now, these days "Wah Wah" or "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)" will perk me up.

I generally don't go to music when I'm sad or angry.

But one period of my life when a girl broke up with me, I remember sitting in an armchair listening to "Yer Blues" and sobbing like a baby.

Usually I don't really listen to anything when I'm angry, because happy music pisses me of even more, but when I'm sad I NEED happy music like Here Comes The Sun, I Saw Her Standing There, Octopus's Garden and a lot from Rubber Soul, Help and Revolver in general.

When I'm sad, I listen to Strawberry Fields Forever because it reminds me who I am, and that no one else is like me. When I'm angry, I listen to Hey Bulldog because I see myself as George. He looked super annoyed when John and Paul started the screaming part xD

I'm so glad you mentioned this because it made me go to YouTube and gave me a great laugh.

There's not a particular song I go to, for most Beatle songs make me calm whether I be angry or sad. Let It Be and The Long And Winding Road would probably two of the songs I would not go to because if I am already sad or depressed, they would just make me even more depressed.

When I'm annoyed I go to Within You Without You, but lately I've been listening to the likes of Let it Roll or the demo anthology version of No Reply. Yesterday when I had a headache I listened to Rubber Soul entirely and it worked pretty well.

Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping~.

I was hit pretty hard today with sadness... okay, you got me, I'm absolutely heartbroken. I just learned that the girl I love (the very first I've ever had feelings for) started going out with someone. To make matters worse, I had three midterms today, and I overheard them talking about a date they're having just as I left to grab my stuff from my locker. I'm pretty sure I failed the last two. Now, I was going to play Twist And Shout with a group this Friday for a cabaret the drama club is putting on, but because of this, I dropped it. I am now going to play "This Boy", solo. I'm going to beg for the last spot. It just feels right, you know? 

 

Remember that scene in A Hard Days Night where Ringo kisses that woman in the train goodbye? Guess how I'm reacting to the situation...paul-mccartney

Sorry to hear about your less-than-stellar day, EDS. 'This Boy' sounds perfect! If you are also singing it (besides just playing it) and she is in the audience, I would look right into her eyes the whole time!

In any event, have some apples from me - hope they put a smile on your face.

Thanks, you're the only person who's sympathized me. My parents didn't even pick up that I was upset a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

I don't necessarily have a go~to song when I'm sad, but I noticed yesterday (after being deeply moved by the news of the Colorado Movie Massacre) that I seem to have a go~to style. Lennon's "Dylan period" songs seem to always calm me. After discovering the horrendous news of the massacre and having a slight emotional breakdown, I went to my room, plugged my earphones into my ears, and listened to songs such as "Norwegian Wood", "Girl", and "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" at full volume. That eventually led to a major Bob Dylan marathon, which didn't have too great of a kick off seeing as the first song I listened to was "Blowin' In The Wind", which brought on more tears. But as far as The Beatles go, the folk-rock songs are where it's at during sad times.

 

Some people are just... how do I put this, oh yeah INSANE! And did you hear about Connecticut. The trouble these people must go through. And you'll keep saying it'll never happen to me.ahdn_george_05ahdn_george_05ahdn_george_05sorry I'll try to stay-on-topic

Sorry for going off topic but i am anyway.

For the life of me i cannot understand the continuing stance of the right to bear arms. Not all massacres would be stopped, i get that, but i cannot for the life of me understand how people can continue to hold that belief when kids, teenagers and adults are being killed in the most gruesome, most unexplainable, most tragic of circumstances leaving behind so much pain, anger and emptiness in loved ones lives. And its still going on. I keep hearing reports in the US about 3 people being shot dead here, another 2 here, another 4 here. Will it ever change? Will Congress and the people who have the power ever get it changed? How many lives must be taken until there is change? With every person who is shot dead in such tragedies it is one second too late.

And i dont care who i offend with that.

Kendall Payne sang that "everyone angry is only just aching inside". I totally believe that. 

 

As for back on topic. Thats who i will listen to. Kendall Payne. I dont listen to the Beatles.

"Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" cheers me up simply because it's so gay and jaunty.  Also, Rocky Racoon, No Reply, and Two of Us.

No, it won't. You can't change the constitution. That will never happen. How many people are stabbed, beaten, or suffocated to death? Are we supposed to ban knives and start amputating people's arms, too? 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? I think I would rather be shot. The guns are not the problem, it's the individuals who use them to kill innocent people.

Why not? And hasn't it already been done. I'm a crazy British person who appreciates our gun laws, so don't have the affection for the American Constitution that many of those who live there do. I'm also a former politics student and still a bit of a politics geek. I do not believe the original framers of the constitution, written at a time when the United States did not have a Standing Army, would have phrased the 2nd Amendment as they did had they been able to look at the gun proliferation, and the type of weapons that were to come, were they able to look into the future. The type of guns they spoke of were very different to the mass killing machines that can now be bought without any checks in many States. To argue that situation can't be changed because the constitution can't be changed just seems to me plain wrong. One reason that argument is wrong is that the constitution has been changed many times to reflect a changing society and its changing morals. There's an interesting little film out at the moment about someone considered one of America's most important presidents, think it's called Lincoln, and it's about his political struggle to attain the 13th Amendment in 1865, outlawing slavery (would you strike out the 13th Amendment because it's not a part of the original constitution?). The constitution was changed as recently as 1992 with the adoption of the 27th Amendment, first proposed in 1789! Previous to that the 26th Amendment, changing voting age (would you want voting rights to remain as originally framed?), was passed in 1971. The American Constitution is no longer the document that the framers put their signatures to, so to argue that the gun laws cannot be changed because the constitution cannot be changed is palpably wrong. The only thing standing in the way of a 28th Amendment modifying the rules around gun ownership - whether in minor or major ways - is the section of the American population who don't want the gun laws changed; who don't mind that in some States a career criminal can buy lethal weapons at gun shows without any checks, or that the majority (if not all) of the mass shootings that have become one of the signatures of America for those of us who don't live there, have been carried out with legally owned firearms.

Back on topic Hey Jude always brings a smile to my face when I'm feeling down. Just got a bunch of early takes - 1, 7, 9 & 10. Grinning all over.

I agree that if you are determined to kill someone you will and that the big problem is the people who commit the acts but to say people are going to kill be it with a gun or a knife so you either ban everything or nothing so whats the point is daft to me. Cars will knock people down and idiots will crash them into people when they dont have a license but you still make it as safe as possible to drive and folk have to take tests to have legally them. You dont just say you want a car, fill in a form, wait a couple of days for the keys to arrive and on you go.

Change is always possible. Its down to the people to bring it around by standing up and campaigning so the politicians will listen and act. How many years did woman have to campaign for the right to vote in the early 1900's in the UK, standing against powerful rich men (and poor) who were dead against it for many reasons? But social pressure, a changing society and campaigns brought it around.

 

I think the mods might step in in a minute and ask for this to move elsewhere for the sake of the thread. Apologies for deviating the whole place.

Adding stricter gun laws is totally different than getting rid of the right to keep and bear arms. Maybe it is too easy to get guns in America, but that's kind of the point of the second amendment. I think assault weapons are ridiculous and shouldn't even exist. There is no reason any person would need an assault rifle, but having another type of gun is fine, unless you're killing people with it, which is probably usually a bad thing. a-hard-days-night-paul-10paul-mccartney
