What's your favorite song about the Pancreas?

If you're a music lover and a big fan of the pancreas, you have lots of choices available to you. You don't have to settle for one or even two songs devoted exclusively to that mysterious organ.

If you're an iTunes user, you can choose from the following:

  • "Pancreas" - by Weird Al Yankovic (from the album Straight Outta Lynwood)
  • "Pancreas"* - by Mindless Drug Hoover (from the album Top Banana)
  • "Fiddycent Ate His Own Pancreas"* - by Killjoy vs. Enduser (from the album It's Incredibly Retail)
  • "The Happy Pancreas" - Sam Crain & Friends (from the album Jazz Guitar Vol. 3)
There's even an album called I Am John's Pancreas by a band called A Witness.

A quick MySpace music search reveals these results:
  • "That Pancreas"** - by PANCREAS THAT!
  • "We are Pancreas"** - by the death metal band called Pancreas
  • A band called Pancreas and the Checkered Rectum**
  • A band called Pancreas Music**
  • Another band called Pancreas (they should get together)
  • A band called Pancreas Records***
But my all-time favorite song about the pancreas is "Pancreas" by Heywood Banks:

Go here to listen to it.

*Labeled as "EXPLICIT" on iTunes. Listen at your own risk.
**No Labels on MySpace for lyrics, but I recommend that you tread carefully around these parts.
***I cannot even figure out what these guys are saying.

I'm not sure I've heard any of those pancreas songs, but I CAN say this with certainty. I'm reaaaally sick of the bowel song, especially as I still have one more child to teach phonics to before it's over.

What, my dear child, Olivia?
It's called what?
The VOWEL song?


Never mind.

That reminds me of The Poop Song

Didn't They Might Be Giants sing a song about the pancreas? You never cease to amaze me with your ability to find odd and obscure facts. But obviously the pancreas holds more fascination with people than I had dreamed. I thought I was the only one.

Once in awhile I do a Google on myself just to see what's out there, and this was definitely something "out there". My song The Happy Pancreas was written and recorded back in 1986, and so titled after seeing the Holiday Inn featuring a group called Gene Grman's Happy Organs.
Now that I seem to have tapped this exciting new genre(songs about Internal Organs)I'm working on some stuff about the Esophagus and Lower Intestine.
Thanks for including my tune. Nice to get some ink however it's done..

Haywood Banks is hilarious, he is a regular on The Bob and Tom show. If you don't know about them they are very funny and on early AM mostly on classic rock stations. HILARIOUS!
