Song You Don’t Want To Hear Waking Up From Anesthesia


This is the song that started it.

Funeral for a Friend by Elton John

We sometimes play music in the operating room. One day, as the patient was emerging from the anesthesia, the radio was playing Funeral for a Friend. I said “We better turn that down. I don’t think I would like to hear that when I am waking up”

That brought up “What other songs would you not like to hear coming out of anesthesia?”

There are lots. Stay tuned. No pun intended.

  • Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin
  • Another One Bites the Dust by Queen
  • Blinded by the Light by Manfred Mann
  • It’s Over by Boz Scaggs
