Songs about going to the doctor…

Since I was back at the hospital today I wondered if there were any tunes about going to the doctor, or tunes about doctors. The first one that came to my mind is Ramblin’ Jack’s performance of Arthritis Blues. I’m fortunate not to have arthritis, or at least not yet, but my father had it for years in his knees and Jack is right, it is all kinds of trouble….

Now, some performers are known as doctors… Here’s Gris-Gris Gumbo Ya Ya by Dr. John…

And who can forget Like a Surgeon by Weird Al?

Since I like all kinds of folk music, here’s Doctorin’ the Tardis by the Timelords

Doctor….ain’t there somethin’ I can take? Put the lime in the coconut. I never thought I’d be sharing a Harry Nilsson tune…

Of course there are dozens and dozens more….what are your fave tunes mentioning doctors or medicine?

Have your say...
