the mix tape
On the surgeon's music playlist in the OR today:
- "Up Where We Belong" by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes
- That song that goes "Sometimes when we touch, the honesty's too much."
- "(I Just) Died in Your Arms" by Cutting Crew
- "Lady in Red" by Chris De Burgh
- The theme from "Rocky" (not "Eye of the Tiger" proper with the trumpets, but the sad, ruminative piano riff on the same that they play during quiet moments, like when Rocky visits Adrian in the hospital when she's in a coma after she has a placental abruption secondary to working to hard at the pet store and it's sad and Rocky doesn't want to be a fighter anymore until Adrian wakes up due to the POWER OF HIS LOVE and tells him to WIN)
And then we all put our hair up in scrunchies, rolled up the sleeves of our jean jackets, and flattened out a cardboard box so we could breakdance on it.
