Songs About Dentistry

Recommended Posts

When I got to know this song (a B-side collected on the cassette version the Standing On A Beach singles compilation iirc) I didn't have a clue what it was about. Most of a lifetime later, a YouTube comment explained it to me.

To be fair, dentistry isn't typical rock music subject matter.....

....or is it? Perhaps there plenty of other songs on this theme which have similarly escaped my notice?

I usually sing "Dum dumma dumma dum dum waaahh, dum dumma dumma dum dum waaahh..."😄

To quote the great Adam Hussain, "Boom, boom, boom, shake the room / Can't remember the words, but I can hum the ------- tune."

How about Teethgrinder by Therapy? :



Curiously, not long after watching this/reading the post, a signed copy of Therapy?'s greatest hits dropped through my door! :D

I remember having a Barron Knights skit of Boney M's "Rivers of Babylon" on 7" single when I was a kid.

I seem to remember the lyrics started off:

There's a dentist in Birmingham

He fixed my crown

And as I slept

He filled my mouth with iron......
