Minecraft "Connection failed"

Okay so I fired up Minecraft and ran the update.

I tried to log into my worlds but I keep getting "Connection failed - connection to the server was lost.  Exiting to the main menu"

Interesting I'm able to start a new world but when I go back I get the same message.

Can someone help me?
