Brazilian surgeons were given a soundtrack by the patient they were operating on during a recent procedure at the Our Lady of Conception hospital in Tubarao. Anthony Kulkamp Dias, a 33-year-old bank worker, played songs including the Beatles' Yesterday as he was kept conscious during an operation to remove a tumor.

In a Facebook post about the procedure, the hospital said that by keeping Dias conscious, surgeons were better able to map his brain activity, reducing the risk of damage.
