Your palms are sweaty, your heart is racing, and your tummy feels funny. Yep, it’s the dreaded love sickness, so here’s what you need – a great song about a doctor...
Bad case of loving you - Robert Palmer
Poor old Robert Palmer, the doctor won’t be able to help him – he’s got it really bad: “Doctor, Doctor, give me the news, I got a bad case of loving you!”
Doctor, Doctor – Thompson Twins
The year is 1984, the hairstyles have gone mad, and the Thompson Twins are begging: “Doctor, Doctor, can’t you see I’m burning, burning...”
The Doctor – The Doobie Brothers
“Music is The Doctor” in this upbeat Doobie Brothers song, and it’s really worth watching the video for some serious moustache styling.
Dr Beat – Miami Sound Machine
Poor Gloria Estefan has a serious problem and only the doctor himself can help: “Doc doc doc doc, Doctor Beat, won’t you help me, Doctor Beat!”
Dr Feelgood – Motley Crue
Thumping beats and howling guitars are the only way to get the attention of Dr Feelgood, Motley Crue reveals: “He’s the one they call Dr Feelgood...”
Doctor Love – The First Choice
Don’t worry, there’s a soul solution to what ails you and First Choice’s favourite medic has it: “He’s got the potion and the motion...”
Dr Robert – The Beatles
Not one of the Fab Four’s better known songs, and a glimmer of suspicion that they weren’t exactly singing about their family GP: “Take a drink from his special cup, Doctor Robert.”
