An item on BBC Radio 2 early this morning made us both chuckle – apparently ‘experts’ have decided that piping upbeat music round our hospitals will aid the healing process.
We pondered on which departments would choose which songs…
Fracture Clinic – Bruce Springsteen – Born To Run
Gynaecology – Shania Twain – Man, I Feel Like A Woman
Neurology – Boston – More Than a Feeling
[as used on the Barclaycard Advert]
Geriatrics – Irene Cara – I’m Gonne Live Forever
Obstretrics – Britney Spears – Hit Me, Baby One More Time
or perhaps, Abba – Mamma Mia!
Podiatry – The Pointer Sisters – Jump!
Urology – Manfred Mann – If You Gotta Go, Go Now!
Rheumatology – Chas & Dave – Knees Up Mother Brown
Any more suggestions ?
For the past 10 years, apparently, the most popular song requested on Hospital Radio is Frank Sinatra’s “I Did It My Way.”
One of my Dad’s favourite hospital jokes…
Q- What’s the difference between God and a consultant ?
A- God doesn’t think He is a consultant.
