Music buffs & nurses, lend me your knowledge! Need assistance matching up popular song verses with health symptoms & nursing diagnoses.
OK, hive mind. I’m doing an audio project for one of my nursing school classes and I need your help. At this link
there is a list (albeit somewhat incomplete) of official NANDA nursing diagnoses. For my project, I am creating a collage of audio clips from various songs, with each clip representing a different diagnosis (Note: I am by no means planning on including every diagnosis on this list - just enough to make it fun and interesting.)
Here are some examples I’ve already thought of:
-The “Uh-huh, uh-huh-huh! (Goddamn!)” segment from Let Me Clear My Throat by DJ Kool representing ‘Ineffective Airway Clearance’
-Wilson-Phillips singing “Hold on for one more day!” representing ‘Urinary Retention.’
-R.E.O. Speedwagon singing "I Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore" representing ‘Urge Incontinence’
-The beginning "AAAAAH!" screams from Them Bones by Alice in Chains representing Acute Pain (not on linked list.)
-"But then you ate so much you nearly split your pants" from Bust A Move by Young M.C. representing ‘Altered Nutrition: More Than Body Requirements.’
-"I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour, but heaven knows I’m miserable now" from Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now by The Smiths representing ‘Failure to Thrive’ (not on linked list.)
-"Dave the dope fiend shootin’ dope, who don’t know the meaning of water nor soap!" from Children’s Story by Slick Rick representing ‘Bathing/Hygiene Self-Care Deficit.’
All of the above examples are clearly more for amusement purposes, but I will need some more serious examples as well so the professor knows I actually DO care about the profession and what it stands for. (To that end, I will probably wrap it all around with something like ‘I’ll Be There’ by the Weekend Players or some such, although there’s a fine line between earnestness and over the top sappiness, the latter of which I want to avoid.) No genre is off limits, but I’d rather the clip/song not be so obscure that few people will have heard it. Also, and this probably goes without saying, some of the listed diagnoses are clearly tragic or difficult (I'm thinking particularly of the Rape-Trauma syndrome diagnoses) so please don't suggest clips that would make light of these, as they will not be used. Once I get enough clips I’m going to use Audacity to cut/splice and piece them all together with some voice over to make one cohesive presentation that is both amusing and (hopefully, with better clips than those above) somewhat inspiring.
So, brilliant people, any thoughts? Thanks so much in advance!
