    It's the End of the World... is by REM.

    3 am by Matchbox 20 is another good suggestion.
    And I always sleep better when its raining. The sound of the rain creates white noise, the room is dark and cool, and my bed warm inviting. I sleep best during rainy days.

    I have no idea why, but every single freaking time I am at work, at some point I get the song "yellow submarine" stuck in my head.
    Well, thanks. I just read your post and miraculously, I have Yellow Submarine stuck in my head now.

    What about Tenacious D, Weenie in a bottle.

    When I started the thread that merged with this one, I was struggling finding diversity in my music selection. My co-workers were asking for more country music and stuff from other genres. Any non-rock songs?

    I was in the house when the house burned down
    Life'll kill ya
    For my next trick, I'll need a volunteer
    Don't let us get sick
    Spendid isolation
    Lawyers, guns, and money
    Excitable boy
    Searching for a heart
    Jungle work
    Roland the headless thompson gunner
    Mr. Bad example
    Poor poor pitiful me
    My sh##'s f###ed up (yes it's really a song- maybe written after Warren found out he had lung cancer)

    All Warren Zevon (one of my favorite artists) may he rest in peace.
    "Learning to flinch" and "Life'll kill ya" albums

    Wasted youth
    Life is a lemon and I want my money back
    It just won't quit
    Heaven can wait
    For crying out loud
    All revved up with no place to go
    Left in the dark
    Not a dry eye in the house
    Where angels sing
    Bad attitude

    All Meat Loaf- another favorite of mine

    forgive me if I get these lyrics wrong, I'm writing them totally from memory and it's been a long time-
    "life it seems to fade away, growing farther every day, I have lost the will to live, I have nothing more to give"- Metallica
    That's Fade To Black, classic power ballad from their "Ride the Lightning" album

    "Go Getta" r kelly and young jeezy. (just how hard nursing is)

    An old one "Hard Day's Night" by the Beatles.... One line says "It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log"....

    I apologise in advance for the earworms:

    When looking for hard to find veins- Carole King's " You' re no good".

    When inserting a Foley- All American Rejects "Dirty little secrets"

    Anytime- "if I only had a brain" from the Wizard of Oz.
    or "When all our hope is gone, we move along" also All American Rejects.
    On good days- "These hands" by Jewel.

    consider the following carcass lyrics:
    [color=#dddddd]vomited anal tract

    oral eruption
    rectal extroversion...

    your vagus implodes, as nausea strikes
    savaging your body in terminal retch
    violent spasms and decaying enzymes
    engulf your throat as you belch

    intestinal disturbance, your ileum turns inside-out
    your duodenum is thrust up towards your mouth
    your pancreas excretes stale septic pus
    your whole digestive system is now a sticky mush

    rectal vomit in your thorax
    retch your anal tract

    liquidized oesophagus mixes with bloodied excretion
    as you pathetically gasp for breath
    the stench of hot faeces scorch your nose
    as you violently vomit to death

    your intestines are rising, up towards your throat
    stale bile escaping through your bloodied nose
    your colon digested into acidic slush
    your tongue gargling on your dislocated anus

    [solo: grotesque anal disgorgement]

    yeah, that pretty much sums up my experience in gi surgery.

    "One Moment in Time", by Whitney Houston...everytime I hear it, I think of being on the stage at my pinning ceremony. I remember the instructor's sitting in the first 2 rows of the auditorium, and when the speaker announced our class, they all stood up first and applauded, followed by the rest of the room. I bawled like a baby! Our class had so many hard times, personal and otherwise. It was nice to see their support, for as hard as they were on some of us going through school, there was a reason for their "madness". I look back on those times, and am thankful they were the way they were. That song still chokes me up.

    Here's a few :
    This is the 1st few lines in AFI's "Endlessly, She Said".
    "Walked into our world and made
    Horrible sounds.
    I can still hear them today
    (strangely they seem)..."

    "The Leaving Song Pt. 2" by AFI

    "I saw its birth, I watched it grow
    I felt it change me..."

    This certainly isn't talking about childbirth in this song, but every time I hear this part I can't help but think of L/'m sure Mr. Davey Havok is speaking of something really deep and profound...but still I think fo a nasty child birth when I hear it!!!:trout: (can you tell I' NOT an L/D nurse...)
