Psychiatry and songs is a blog by Niall Crumlish. I am a psychiatrist since 1999 and a music fan since 1984, which is the first time I remember telling my dad not to turn a particular song (Wham’s ‘Freedom’) off the radio. I’ve written for State and Hot Press. I’ve been a consultant psychiatrist in St. James’s Hospital, Dublin, since 2010. I am a full decade late to blogging.
