We are music junkies over here at I Heart Guts headquarters, and we'd love it if you lent your ears to our I Heart Guts body-themed playlist on Spotify! An eclectic mix of body-part themed songs, this heartfelt mix tape has over 11 hours of listening pleasure, and I'm adding stuff all the time. Naturally almost every other song is about matters of the heart, but believe it or not, there are also great songs about brains, uteruses and even the lowly spleen! This playlist is far from exhaustive, and I'll admit sometimes I stretch the anatomy connection to add a song or artist I really heart. Perhaps you never really noticed that Jay-Z shouts out the bladder in Rihanna's "Talk That Talk" or that Weird Al Yankovic rhymes "glucagon" with "islets of Langerhans" in "Pancreas." Our playlist will also introduce you to lesser-known hits such as "Liver Splash" by funk legends The Meters, "Montego Bay Spleen" by St. Germain or Wagon Christ's "My Organ in Your Face." Will some surgeon out there please play this in the operating room and fulfill my lifelong dream to become DJOR?
Uterus Song from Wendy Bryan on Vimeo. A highlight of the New York Now show was meeting Magnetic Poetry founder Dave Kapell, who surprised us all by writing a song all about the uterus and serenaded our pink and fluffy one at the show! Dave started Magnetic Poetry as a songwriting tool for himself, and he is quite the accomplished ukelele player. Needless to say, our uterus enjoyed being the center of attention, and we all loved Dave's surprise performance in the depths of the Javits center. Watch the video or read the lyrics below and thanks, Dave! The Uterus Song Song by Dave Kapell "All the people on this bus Lived inside one of us Half of them now carry us Did you guess the uterus? "Sometimes we make ladies cuss When we get all crampy us Sorry, girls, for all the fuss You can thank your uterus "Making babies, shedding walls Turning into cock and balls Yes, that's right, every boy once had us "We've been blamed for craziness Hysteria was named for us Now it seems hilarious Funny thing, the uterus Generous uterus Fabulous uterus Wonderous uterus"
