Rock n’ Roll Hospital

A few weeks ago, a close friend and contributor to 50THIRDAND3RD, fell sick and was rushed to the hospital. While she was there we asked her what we could do. Her answer? “Make a mix tape to help me heal.” So we made this mix (posted below) and I guess it must have worked!  We are glad to announce that even though she is not out of the woods yet, she has been discharged from the hospital and is resting comfortably at home.

Don’t take the healing power of music for granted!


Nurses, nurses, can’t you see
I don’t dig this jive you giving me?
Give me your pill or give me your shot
You got me wondering what, what have I got?
