Bohemian Polypharmacy by James McCormack

This week’s Song of the Week was recommended by MIA founder Robert Whitaker: “I first heard James McCormack’s Bohemian Polypharmacy—a parody of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody—nearly a decade ago, and still, every time I listen to it, I find it so brilliant — funny, extremely well done musically, and a powerful piece of criticism of a medical practice that does such harm (and particularly in psychiatry). A powerful work of art.”

—Robert Whitaker
