lyrics/quotes about sickness/flu


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I was talking to a friend about her thesis. She examins how the flu interacts with your cells etc, don't ask me to go into detail. Now I got this cool idea, I said: you should put a nice quote on your thesis, make it extra personal.

for example, one of our profs put this Run DMC quote on one of our exams:

"Don't ask me, because I don't know why

But it's like that, and that's the way it is"

So now we're looking for a nice line to fit her thesis.

All I've come up with so far is:

Sick sick sick (by QotSA), but we obviously need something more.. meaningful ;)

Thanks ahead!

of course a Roger Clyne song is the first thing I thought of. Maybe you can cull something from this verse (from "Loco to Stay Sane"):

Doctor, Doctor, can you cure me?

A little pill, a little something to assure me

I’m gonna feel better when I walk outside your door

(He said) Son, son, son, I know

what your’re needin’

Your body is fine, it’s your soul that’s bleedin’

I got the same disease,

ain’t nobody yet found the cure

If you find it, bottle it, you’ll be a rich man for sure

and here is the list of Songfacts for songs about medical conditions...

Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu

I wanna jump but I'm afraid I'll fall

I wanna holler but the joint's too small

Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too

I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

Call some other's baby that ain't all

I wanna kiss her but she's way too tall

Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too

I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

I wanna squeeze her but I'm way too low

I would be runnin' but my feets too slow

Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too

I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

Baby comin' now I'm hurryin' home

I know she's leavin' cause I'm takin' too long

Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too

I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

I feel bad, and I've felt worse

I'm a creep, yeah, I'm a jerk

Come on

Touch me, I'm sick

Mudhoney. First thing that came to mind.

me too :rockon:

other ides:

You want to trust the doctors

Their procedure is the best

But the last try was a failure

And the intern was a mess

And they did the same to Matthew

And he bled 'til Sunday night

They're saying don't be frightened

But you're weakened by the sight of it

Hope ~ R.E.M.

Is there a way to find the cure for this implanted in a pill

It’s just the name upon the bottle, which determines if it will

Is the problem you're allergic to a well familiar name?

Do you have a problem with this one if the results are the same?

Well strip the bark right off a tree and just hand it this way

Don't even need a drink of water to make the headache go away

Give me a sugar pill and watch me just rattle down the street

Acetaminophen, you see the medicine

Oh girl you have no faith in medicine

Girl, You Have No Faith in Medicine ~ The White Stripes

Influenza - Todd Rundgren

I can tell, I can feel

I can tell, I can feel, I can see

Something is changing

To me change is no stranger

I don't run, I don't hide

I don't run, I don't hide, I don't fight

What fate arranges

I don't think about danger

If it was meant for me

I'd know just when to come

But if I can take it slow

Then I might be in control

In the back of my head

In the back of my head there is doubt

There is suspicion

With my new fascination

I don't know what it is

I don't know what it is, you might say

It's intuition

It's a true indication

I should trust myself

I should beware of this

But it's like a stranger's kiss

And somehow I can't resist

I can feel, I can feel, I can feel

my will slip away

From a strange influenza

I can feel, I can feel, I can feel

my mind slip away

Under your influenza

I can feel, I can feel, I can feel

my heart slip away

Under your influenza

There's a part of my heart

There's a part of my heart that says stop

Please go no further

I just can't take the pressure

So I try to resist

So I try to resist and my heart

Tells me don't bother

That this pain is a pleasure

If I were someone else

I wouldn't disagree

But it's always hard to see

When something's controlling me
