These Hilarious Nurses Sing Medical Parodies Of Classic Songs
We can't stop laughing.
The Laryngospasms, a group of singing nurse anesthetists from Minnesota, is cracking us up with their medical parodies of hit songs.
You’ve probably never heard of them, but they’ve been singing since one fateful Christmas party in the 1990s, and now have multiple albums and music videos.
Why the name? Well, a laryngospasm happens when “the vocal cords suddenly seize up or close when taking in a breath, blocking the flow of air into the lungs.” Sounds like a perfect name for a group of singing anesthetists to us!
Throughout their 20-year history, the group has had 15 members. All members have been Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs). Their first national performance was in 1991 at the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists’ National Conference in Tennessee.
Unfortunately, it looks like the group is no longer active. Their last post on Facebook was in 2013 and their website no longer works, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy their former work!
Check out their videos below!
1. “Waking Up Is Hard To Do”
This song is set to the hit “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do” by Neil Sedaka. With lyrics like “Don’t take my tube away from me. I’m trying to breathe, oh, can’t you see?” it’s pretty hard not to smile.
This one is set to “All You Have to Do is Dream” by the Everly Brothers. “Whenever I want you, all I have to do is dream, dream dream dream dream…” has been cleverly replaced with “I really wish you’d help me out and open up your eyes and breathe breathe breathe.”
