Happiness is a Warm Gun by the Beatles.

John Lennon was anti gun and wrote this song after seeing the title on a gun magazine and thought it was an insane thing to say since it means you just shot something or someone. A few years later he told Dick Cavett that he "would probably get killed by being shot by a fan".

2. I was hosting an acoustic open mic night with a buddy

when the Cheney administration bombed Iraq. It was on the tv and I looked at the guitar player and asked, "Happiness?" Seemed like the right song at the moment.....
