mad world.....

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
this should go in the entertainment section. but seeing as its hardly entertaining i thought not.

the song mad world........last years christmas number one.

last year had the largest number of sucides, murders, attmepted sucides, and mental paicents admitted into hospitals over christmas new year period since 1994.

and critics all believe it's because of this song......

what do you think?

AND NO I DID NOT FUCKING WELL PUT THIS IN THE WRONG FUCKING FORUM YOU FUCKING ARSES!

    it was defiantely a very depressing version of the song, personally i hated it because of that. far too bleak for the time of year.

    WHERE HAVE THE VENGABOYS GONE FOR CHRIST'S SAKE?!?!!?!?!?!!?

    because people in general are sheep and are subject to mind control from various forms of 'entertainment'.

    yea..maybe it would make u abit sadder or happier. But not so much as to force you to commit suicide and other things mentioned.

    True, but for anyone to go and kill themselves over a song is a bit.....pathetic really.

    think about it. there are more cases of suicide over the christmas period as it is. it only takes a little something to push you over the edge. it's a trigger. not really pathetic. it's just odd and intresting how the human mind works.

    It's because Christmas is seen as the time to come together and be loved, therefore it exposes people to feel a lot more lonely. I don't think a song would push someone over the edge, I think that if you're depressed then it's probably the type of song you'd play while considering it, but it won't be the main reason you kill yourself.

    if a song pushes you over the edge then there can't have been much more than a spiders web holding you there ...

    no but your right, the depressing song that people play whilst in contempation. it's a very depressing song, and that might tip the balance of whether they go ahead or not.

    I think it's true.

    In the same way listening to heavy metal and playing Doom MAKES YOU GO CRAZY AND SHOOT UP YOUR SCHOOL.

    Fuckwits.

    if kids are that impressionable these days then shoot them or lock them up.

    but seriously, suicidal people are very vunerable, seriously vunerable, and i know from personal exsperiance that little meaningless things can tip the balance....

    Obviously. I have a hit list under my bed. Y'see, I listen to everything rock bands say, for example there is a band called Slipknot and they say "Spit it out" so naturally I don't swallow :p

    I suppose it's no coincidence that East 17 were christmas number one in 1994. That would certainly have thrown me over the edge..........

    no what i'm saying is just the fact that for suicidal people, little things can count. i'm surtainly not saying we should censor songs or poems. fuck, all my lyrics would be burnt and sylvia plath would have never become famous.

    it's the people who it tip the balance for's problem. not anyone elses.

    Yeah, I remember the headline as well "Teen murders victim in re-enactment of scene from video game". Even 'though it turned out there was no actual scene that vaguely resembled it in the whole game...

    I remember after the Columbine shooting's too. Apparently the kids who did it were listening to Marilyn Manson before school and the police found a copy of Doom in one of their rooms later on.

    I honestly can't begin to comprehend how people can link these things in their head.

    I even remember several news sites and TV programs saying Doom was so violent and realistic it was used by the US army to help train their troops. I kid you not. Doom.

    How is firing an M16 at an enemy soldier in any way similar to using a keyboard and a mouse to battle 2D pixelated Hell demons?

    S'pose if they were playing the game with 'Friendly Fire' turned off it might explain a few things in Iraq though...

    So you think only those annoying holiday jingles should be played at Christmas?

    That's not a solution. These people don't need all potentially 'sad' songs filtered from their ears, but something completely different and actually helpful.

    If the song actually did 'tip the balance', something else woulda done it anyway even if the song wasn't around.

    Kids these days are pussies anyway. You never heard stories of your dad/grandad or any of his friends cutting or killing themselves. What you do hear is how life back then was so much harder than it is now, so why such a high suicide/self harm rate?

    Back in my day we'd just declare war on Germany again and that would sort them out.
