Gimme My Damn Data Video Project


ACMImimi is inviting anyone wanting to promote access to their electronic health information to contribute to the creation of a music video of "Gimme My Damn Data" - debuted at HIStalkapalooza by The King of Rock and Roll, Mr. Elvis Presley, FACMImimi and recorded last weekend at Greenspun Studios in Bethesda, MD with Dr Harry Greenspun, his son Ben Greenspun, Chris Brancato, FACMImimi and our President and Founder, Dr. Ross D. Martin, MD, MHA, FACMImimi. Take a look at the video of our recording. Here is the rough-cut of the audio (note that the audio will be remastered once we have submissions from everyone). This will be published under a Creative Commons attribution/share-alike license.

What we need:

  • Video
    • Clips (can just be a few seconds) of people jamming to the song:
      • Lip syncing
      • Air guitar
      • Dancing
      • Acting out the words
      • Anything of reasonable taste - use your creativity!
    • Submit your video in HD (widescreen, 16:9 ratio) in the highest resolution you can in AVI, MPG or MOV formats.
  • Audio
    • Audio of VOCALS ONLY should be recorded separately from the video and submitted in high quality MP3 or WAV files.  Then lip sync to your audio when recording your video.  Shouts of "Gimme my data!" (as a call back to the main "Gimme my damn data!"), versions of the chorus or verses are all welcome.  You don't need to submit audio if you only want to offer video.
  • If you want to contribute audio/video to the video, please send an email to ACMImimi and we will provide information on uploading files.

Lyrics for the song are below:

Gimme My Damn Data
(in Honor of Dave (e-Patient Dave) deBronkart--to "Blue Suede Shoes")

Well it's one for the doctor
Two for the nurse
You say you're tryin' to treat me
So don't make me feel worse

Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
It's all about me so it's mine

You can cut out my heart
Take it to the dump
Feed it to the dogs
Replace it with a pump
You can make me pop pills
Just to keep me alive
But there's one more thing
I gotta have to survive

Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
It's all about me so it's mine

You can knock me out*
To treat my gloom
Lock me up
In a rubber room
You can tie me down
And shock my brain
But just one cure's
Gonna ease my pain

Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
Gimme My Damn Data
It's all about me so it's mine

You can send me your bill
Charge me anything
Drive a nice car
Live like a king
With all the dough
That I pay
Tell me why is it so hard
To get my data right away

Gimme My Damn Data (gimme my data!)
Gimme My Damn Data (gimme my data!)
Gimme My Damn Data
It's all about me so it's mine

Gimme, gimme - gimme it's mine
Gimme, gimme - gimme it's mine
Gimme, gimme - gimme it's mine, mine, mine
Gimme, gimme - gimme it's mine
Gimme My Damn Data
It's all about me so it's mine

  1. *We need someone to record the beginning of the second verse in particular because the words have been adjusted from the original. "You can drug me up / To treat my gloom" is being replaced with "You can knock me out / To treat my gloom." Would be great if someone could submit a video and matching audio for this section. Let me know if you can do this.

    Also, if you do submit a video or audio clip, please post a comment here about what you posted -- including what lines of the song you covered -- so someone else looking to submit a clip can cover a different section. Thanks!

  2. Terrific idea.
    Given that this is based on the "Gimme my damn data" keynote at Medicine 2.0'09
    (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9JBAuYvsng), we'd love to play these videos/audios at the opening of Medicine 2.0'12 in Boston on Sept 15. (epatient Dave will give a follow-up keynote -"Gimme my damn data - 3 years later"). Alternatively, we are looking for people who could perform live (e.g. like David Hale at Medicine 2.0'11 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7rtV1vgHt8) - please contact geysenba at gmail if interested.
