Diagnosis Murder Rap

Album: Diagnosis Murder (1992)

Songfacts®:

  • A one-off rendition of this didactic song was given by Dick Van Dyke, star of the long running American TV series Diagnosis Murder. A somewhat elderly white hospital doctor is not most people's idea of a rapper, but Van Dyke's character Mark Sloan is no run of the mill doctor, and he is seen here instructing a class of medical students in his usual unorthodox manner. >>
