Musical Healing

Had a cataract operation today. As they wheeled me into theatre my past life was flashing past me and I tried to remember what came after "Our Father..." then, would you believe it but they had an Ella Fitzgerald disc playing in the background?! I've never listened so intently to a record in my life but it worked - the op was a doddle!

Lance, Was Ella singing 'I only have eyes for You'
Other 'eye' songs could be suggested by BSH readers!

No, actually, Ella was singing "Witchcraft" and I thought the broom in the corner was for sweeping up!
