Northern Soul & Motown on the NHS

Recommended Posts


Did anyone catch the new Channel Four series which started last night at 10.00 pm, titled No Angels. It is set in a North Of England Hospital and is the story of Doctors and Nurses but all the scene and background music is Northern Soul, Motown and some 70s Funk. Really great tracks but maybe better suited to a series set in either the sixties or seventies, but I,m not complaining.

Has anyone got some tracks or artists that may be associated with the medical theme ?

Here are my three, Heartbeat - Gloria Jones, Doctor Love - Bobby Sheen, Heart Trouble - The Parliments.
