Why Compose In Certain Keys

Hey Everyone!

I'm working on my first few pieces and learning a lot in the process. 

I'm trying to figure out how to pick a key for a song. Is there a general rule of thumb that happy songs are written in certain keys, sad songs fit into others, moody songs fit in the rest.  

How do YOU select the keys for your songs?

Also what resources really helped you when you first started out?

I feel pretty good asking you guys, because I have a lot of respect for the songs that are posted here.

Thanks Guys

2 NEW CHANGES IN JAY AND JOHN'S CHALLENGES!!!

Some changes are in effect for making this group better, and more rewarding for our competitors and winners!

1. We will be providing feed back for each score instead of only 1st place winner to specify strengths and weaknesses in your scores for future reference. 

2. We will be keeping a list of JAY and JOHN'S CHALLENGES' winners in a separate discussion as a "WALL OF FAME" for recognition of first place winners, and as motivation for competitors.

Also Jay and I are reviewing your scores to decide the final winner this Saturday! And trust me when I say, it's not an easy decision. xD Thanks everyone!

Scissors Story

So this happened earlier today at my school. Basically, some dude in my grade took a pair of scissors, took them apart, and used them to attempt to stab 3 different people. The best he got was one of them was bleeding from the finger, but the point is that he didn’t exactly intend for them to leave in one piece. A few minutes later, where only the involved people have heard about this, half the school administration comes down to get him. From the rumors I’ve heard, he got 3 weeks of OSS and a Police Referral. Anyone had something like this happen at their school?
