Saturday Night Music: A Bridge Over Diagnosis


Satirist and scientist James McCormack and his band return with a parody of Simon & Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water that looks at the perils of medical overdiagnosis.

“Now you’re leery, you’ve just been scanned,” begins the song. “Those fears within your eyes, incidentaloma…” Incidentaloma, the video clarifies, is “a tumor found by coincidence (incidentally) without clinical symptoms or suspicion.”
