This ones for you, baby.

This post requires me to dedicate a song to my condition. I've chosen 3 that could be related tenously to Crohn's..

The first is 'Under Pressure' by Bowie and Queen. I love Bowie and am a wee bit obssessed if im honest, but this always plays in my head when I think about my disease. Crohn's is worsened through stressful situations and pressure. I love the lyrics, they are slightly cryptic but and the song always seems like 5 in 1 the amount of different parts to it. I love it and Bowie in general always makes me feel a little bit brighter.


I love 'Painkiller' by turin Brakes too. Obviously the painkiller reference is one that goes hand in hand with Crohn's but the lyrics are very positive, all about leaving your worries behind and trying to enjoy life.


Final choice is Hot Chip 'I feel Better' - i love this song. It's really catchy and I love the lyrics, they make me think positive. I love the lines "Nothing is wasted and life is worth living" and "there is a day that is yours for embracing".
The video is also a wee bit nuts.
