Cleaning out a drawer, I found a late 80's list of songs my medical school roommate (Enzyme) and I wrote down for a year-end party. They summarized our thoughts at the time on med school.

So today I'm sharing them with you:

"Up All Night" - The Boomtown Rats

"Land of Confusion" - Genesis

"Come Monday" (There's a pathology test) - Jimmy Buffet

"Pressure" - Billy Joel

"Life is Shit" - The Dead Milkmen

"Why We Pray" - M.C. Hammer 

"Hell Hole" - Spinal Tap

"I Wanna be Sedated" - The Ramones

"Wipeout" - The Surfaris

"19th Nervous Breakdown" - The Rolling Stones

"One of These Days" (dedicated to a specific pathology professor) - Pink Floyd

"Help!" - The Beatles

The number of these that are still on my current playlists is disturbingly high.

Hehe Moose. The names of bands that I recognize compared to the names of groups my son listens to is disturbing as well.

Ha. As it happens the Beatles "help" often gets in my head looking down a microscope during path/histo, and while I know none of the rest, their titles alone are a pretty fair summary of studying medicine!!!!
