    Pink - Making me Ill - cannot remember the exact lyric, but talks about life support and morphine making the singer sick, and the nurses being bit$$es. I do like it!!!
    Yes, it's Pink, "Just Like a Pill"....I LOVE this song and don't ask me why. I'm 50+ and it's kind of sick, but there's just something I like about this girl and her voice and music:

    I'm lyin' here on the floor where you left me
    I think I took too much
    I'm crying here, what have you done?
    I thought it would be fun

    I can't stay on your life support, there's a shortage in the switch,
    I can't stay on your morphine, cuz its making me itch
    I said I tried to call the nurse again but she's being a little b!#ch,
    I think I'll get outta here, where I can

    Run just as fast as I can
    To the middle of nowhere
    To the middle of my frustrated fears
    And I swear you're just like a pill
    Instead of makin' me better, you keep makin' me ill
    You keep makin' me ill

    (Etc., etc....)

    When I walk into the room of my favorite little confused elderly lady patient who likes to strip down to her birthday suit, I hear the beginning of the old song " It's My Party" "...Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone..."

    I just thought of 2 more! " I've Got You Under My Skin" for the patient afflicted with scabies and for those who suffer from hemorrhoids there's Johnny Cash's "Ring Of Fire"

    Stone Temple Pilots "Creep"

    Take time with a wounded hand
    'Cause it likes to heal
    Take time with a wounded hand
    Guess I like to steal
    Take time with a wounded hand
    'Cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

    I'm half the man I used to me
    This I feel as the dawn
    It fades to gray

    "Kryptonite"- Three Doors Down

    It's not really nursing related.. but this specific part reminds me of nursing..

    You called me strong, you called me weak
    But your secrets I will keep
    You took for granted all the times I
    Never let you down
    You stumbled in and bumped your head, if
    Not for me then you would be dead
    I picked you up and put you back
    On solid ground

    ohh yea, and "Stayin' Alive" - the Beegees. It's 70's music, but I looovvveee that song!
    I like this song becuase that is what nurses have to do- keep their pts alive....

    Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother,
    you're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
    Feel the city breakin' and everybody shakin',
    and we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
    Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
    Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive.

    Pearl Jam "Lightning Crashes"

    Lightning crashes
    A new mother cries
    Her placenta falls to the floor

    The angel opens her eyes
    The confusion sets in
    Before the doctor can
    Even close the door

    Lightning crashes
    An old mother dies
    Her intentions fall to the floor

    The angel closes her eyes
    The confusion that was hers
    Belongs now to the
    Baby down the hall

    Oh, now feel it
    Coming back again
    Like a rolling thunder
    Chasing the wind
    Forces pulling from the
    Center of the earth again
    I can feel it

    Lightning crashes
    A new mother cries
    This moment she`s
    Been waiting for

    The angel opens her eyes
    Pale blue colored eyes
    Presents the circle
    Puts the glory out to hide, hide

    Oh, now feel it
    Coming back again
    Like a rolling thunder
    Chasing the wind
    Forces pulling from the
    Center of the earth again
    I can feel it, I can feel it...

    U2 "If God Will Send His Angels" I like to play this song after a shift when I had a particularly upsetting patient situation such as a young terminal cancer patient, or an unsuccessful code or whatever... I turn it up to ear-splitting volume and sing along with it all the way home.


    Hey if God will send his angels
    And if God will send a sign
    And if God will send his angels
    Would everything be alright

    That song is by the band Live. Good song. Makes me think of why I don't do OB.

    "Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen, released sometime during the Summer of 1980.

    I remember it well, for I was doing my psych clinicals in the Adolecent Unit of a private psychiactric hospital at the time, and that song is ALL those kids ever played.

    I never got so SICK of a song, in my life!! :lol_hitti
    during my first BCLS class about 8 years ago, i had this really wacky instructor who said i did my compressions too fast. anyway, he said that a good way to pace yourself is to sing "another one bites the dust".. never forgot that one
