    It could be worse. Dr. Schlem could be singing the “Dentist” song from “Little Shop of Horrors”.;-D

    Reminds me of that dentist in the movie “Little Shop of Horror” played by Steve Martin.

    He hears “Comfortably Numb”, but he is thinking “Run Like Hell”.

    Well, that’s “The Hard Way” to wait. That guy doesn’t look “Fearless” to me, more like he’s about to say: “Wot’s… Uh the Deal?” “Speak to Me”. But have no “Sorrow” the doc says. We’ll have your tooth out in “Free Four” and the “Echoes” of your screams won’t be heared by anybody – I have “High Hopes” in that. But if I pull out the wrong one don’t you ask me if you can “Take It Back” once you’re “Coming Back To Life”

    6:21 for the album version, so pretty close. Everybody being reseated after the air-guitar solos adds another minute or so.

    Numb, maybe. Comfortable, unlikely.

    That would work for me, brilliant track! Also Biscay by James Last and Albatross by Fleetwood Mac.

    Well, I suppose that works when you need to fix “…another hole in the wall” of your tooth.

    And when the patient gets the bill, they’ll be playing “Money”.

    Dentist: “Please, say something!”

    Patient: “Ummagumma!”

    Doc, you’re scaring the patient, the Novocain doesn’t work on the eyes.

    These classics are making a comeback. New movie Uncharted has a trailer out, theme song playing throughout the trailer is Ramble On by Led Zeppelin. Trailer for Morbius features this slow creepy freaky version of People are Strange by The Doors. 5 minutes into the movie Eternals, the song Time by Pink Floyd starts playing (minus the clocks).

    Actually, if I heard that song while sitting in the dentist chair, I’d run out of there screaming!

    We all know what novacaine is, but dentists no longer use it. They have been using lidocaine for decades.

    I once had a dentist who hummed the same tune every time I went there. No distinguishable melody, and lyrics were only “I love you truly”

    All of the characters in this strip look like they need to see an orthodontist or at least the Smile Club.
