Drinking songs for the nights which end with admit orders and scheduled diazepam. The cover art’s title has a bit of hope: “Together they totter about.”
Songs about putting someone under, making that first cut, and (gulp!) waking them up. The cover art is in Polish: Stopien ryzyka!
Songs about labeling specimens, spinning down platelets, and meeting someone at the blood bank. The picture is an NIH advert. Dial 64509 to check the turnip’s blood type.

Songs *groan* from the heart and for mending broken hearts. The cover art is courtesy of the McGovern Historical Center.
