Dentist music?

November 22, 2011

Today I went to the dentist. I've got a phobia of dentists and I have to go to the next town to see a special guy who deals with anxious patients.

I knew today's appointment wasn't going to go well because I've been finding gritty bits of broken filling in my mouth for a while now. As predicted, two of my fillings have cracked/broken and need to be replaced. Bugger.

I discussed the various options with the dentist but the best one is to man up and try to get through it without any sedation. All the other options involve Mattgreen having to take a day off work to drive me/look after me and that seems a bit shit when we're so short of annual leave next year.

The dentist suggested I bring an iPod and listen to that to drown out the sound of the drill. I've tried it before and it doesn't really work because even if I turn the volume up to max and virtually deafen myself, I can still hear it.

Tonight, Mattgreen and I kept playing songs on YouTube which might be loud enough to work:

Ace of Spades - Motörhead
Sad But True - Metallica (too low-pitched)
Screamager - Therapy? (not shouty enough)
Missing Link - Curve (quite good but I don't like Curve)
Seven Nation Army - White Stripes (too many pauses)
Surprise! You're Dead - Faith No More
Firestarter - The Prodigy (too quiet)
Head Like A Hole - NIN (verses far too quiet)
Something by Hadouken!?

Any further suggestions in the comments would be most welcome. I don't really like metal - most of these are Mattgreen's ideas - but consistent, loud, high-pitched noise is what's required. Thanks in advance!
