DSM-IV Music Awards

At the Bexar County Psychological Association Fall Social we usually do something funny, sort of skit like.  Last year I put together a BCPA Jeopardy game, which went over well.  After Dr. Susan Wynne  got me in a musical frame of mind, I decided to do something more musical and came up with the idea of the DSM-IV Music Awards modeled on the Academy Awards.  What I thought I would do is announce the category, which would be a DSM-IV diagnosis (or V code) and then 3 or 4 songs that reflect that category and then give a winner for each category.  I thought I would choose the songs and winner for each category with input from everyone on this email.  Suggestions for additional songs and categories are welcome.  If any of you would like to send it on to some others who’s opinions would be helpful, feel free.
