    I am the unit DJ. I choose all the music that we listen to at night and I have been compiling a list of nursing related songs. So far I have a few and I need more suggestions. (My iPod is 30 gigs so help me out).

    Some that I already have:

    Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
    This song reminds me of a neurotrauma patient. "Hello, is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me..."

    Banana Boat Song - Harry Bellafonte
    "Daylight come and we wanna go home."

    One - Metallica

    Bring Me to Life - Evanescence
    "Wake me up inside... save me from the nothing I've become"

    Rock and Roll All Nite - KISS
    Only for the night shift

    Dr. Feelgood - Montley Crue

    RESPECT - Aretha Franklin

    Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
    hehehe... I know, it's not really that funny, but it's horribly wicked

    Hotel California - Eagles
    Because sometimes I feel more like concierge than a nurse.

    Let's Get it On -
    When we are getting ready to intubate.

    Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
    For those patients that like to play games... Yeah, the nurse can't tell that you are drug seeking.

    Sympathy for the Devil - Rolling Stones
    For when you wish you could be the devil

    Walk this Way - Aerosmith
    For my friends in PT that like to tell the patients how to "walk this way"

    Dream On - Aerosmith
    Self-explanatory, do you think?

    Every Breath You Take - Police
    For the Respiratory Therapist in your life!

    Freebird - Lynard Skynyrd
    For the patient threatening to go AMA

    That'll Be The Day - Buddy Holly
    What we would like to answer to our most pleasant patients.

    Brown Eyed Girl - Van Morrison
    For the hot, young chick that needs an enema... gotta love the one brown eye!

    Great Balls of Fire - Jerry Lee Lewis
    Scrotal abscess!

    Twist and Shout - Beatles
    For a closed reduction at the bedside.

    Crazy - Patsy Cline
    Needs no explaination

    Hard Days Night - Beatles
    Another one just for night shift.

    Sexual Healing - Marvin Gaye
    From time to time we find a patient with a rather frisky visitor.

    You Shook Me All Night Long - AC/DC

    In the Midnight Hour - Wilson Pickett

    My Name Is - Eminem
    For the ETOH intoxicated, detoxing pt.

    Super Freak - Rick James, b*tch
    For the Gavida 4 para 3, age 21 female patient.

    I'm Coming Out - Diana Ross
    For the occassional drag queen that makes his way to the ER.

    Pour Some Sugar on Me - Def Lep
    I know it's a lame song, but for severe hypoglycemia it fits.

    In the Air Tonight - Phil Collins
    For those f-ed up nights when nothing goes right and all the psych pts come in.

    Head Like a Hole - Nine Inch Nails
    What a song for nurses... "head like a hole, black as your soul, I'd rather die than give you control." That pretty much sums up ICU nurses.

    Hot in Here - Nelly
    For that patient that loves to roam the halls with too little clothes on.

    Since You Been Gone - Kelly Clarkson
    We have this one really bad pulmonologist. The kind you cringe when you have to call him of orders. I always joke that this is his pts singing. "Since you been gone, I can breathe for the first time."

    Welcome to the Jungle - Guns and Roses
    Need I say more?

    Sabotage - Beastie Boys
    When you get a really sh1tty group of patients.

    Creep - Radiohead
    humm, Have you ever had this patient?
    "I'm a creep. I'm a weirdo. What the hell am I doing here? I don't belong here."
    Or maybe that's the voice in your own head?

    Toxic - Britney
    I love calling poison control.

    How I Could Just Kill a Man - Cypress Hill
    Tempting....

    Mama Said Knock You Out - LL Cool J
    Sometimes you gotta make mama happy. Cause if mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy!

    A Change Would Do You Good - Sheryl Crow
    When you look down at the bandage that you just learned 10 min ago in report was clean, dry, and intact but somehow it's suddenly saturated with dry blood.

    My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It) - En Vogue
    Diladid... no you're never gonna get it, not this time. For the new admit that casually insists, "The only pain med that works for me is 4 mg of Dilaudid" when she comes in for left toe cellulitis.

    You Outta Know - Alanis Morrissette
    I'm here to remind you of the mess you left when you went away. For the annoying frequent flyer.

    Hard Knock Life - Jay-Z
    For the patient with babymomma drama at the house, trying to stay straight, but the world is just on his back. (sigh) so sad.

    Bye Bye Bye - Backstreet Boys
    To celebrate when that demanding patient finally gets D/C orders!

    Breathe - Faith Hill
    The L&D Nurse's anthem.

    U Can't Touch This - MC Hammer
    Because every once in a while there comes that demented old fart with the wandering hands.

    For the MVA.

    "...it burns, burns, burns..this ring of fire, this ring of fire" Johnny Cash
    reminds me of those pts with STD's
  6. by   nitenurse02
    At our hospital we have a physical medicine rehabilitation unit and every so often a med/surg nurse gets floated over there.

    "I don't wanna go to rehab!" I don't know who sings it but it has become an anthem for some.
  7. by   NOTEWORTHY
    "Blinded by the light..." don't remember what group sings it. (night shift nurse)
  8. by   mom and nurse
    There was a gentleman still living in the 60s who used to play old songs on his CD player and one he had was by Jefferson Airplane.

    White Rabbit


    One pill makes you larger
    And one pill makes you small
    And the ones that mother gives you
    Don't do anything at all
    Go ask Alice
    When she's ten feet tall

    And if you go chasing rabbits
    And you know you're going to fall
    Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
    Has given you the call
    Recall Alice
    When she was just small

    When men on the chessboard
    Get up and tell you where to go
    And you've just had some kind of mushroom
    And your mind is moving low
    Go ask Alice
    I think she'll know

    When logic and proportion
    Have fallen sloppy dead
    And the White Knight is talking backwards
    And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
    Remember what the dormouse said:
    "FEED YOUR HEAD


    (For some reason that last line especially reminds me of how I'd feel after I had not eaten for 8 hours and had run room to room with IVs beeping and meds to give to my 6 or 7 patients especially since some had brain injuries... loved working with the patients... hated not always having the time I wanted just to eat..)
