This is how my brain works

The other day I was having lunch with a couple of coworkers. We were at a British themed restaurant, and they were playing Britishy music. A familiar sounding song started playing, and I turned to my coworker and asked,

“What is this song? ‘Listerine’?”

“What? No. I don’t think so.”

“Who sings this song?”

“I don’t know.”

“It’s that British band.”

“…The Beatles?”

“No, too far back. From the 90s.”


“No, not Oasis. The guy from this band married that one chick.”


“You know. Blonde. Skinny. She sings. She was in that band.”

“I have no idea.”

“No Doubt! That was her band.”

“Oh, Gwen Stefani?”

“Yeah! The guy who sings this Listerine song married her.”


At this point, I pulled out my phone and googled “Gwen Stefani husband”

“Gavin Rossdale! That’s the guy. He sings this song. What was the name of his band? I want to say Bush, but that sounds dumb… Oh wait, Wikipedia says it is Bush.”

I then typed “Bush” into Google, and spookily, it immediately suggested “Bush Glycerine” as a search request.

“Glycerine! The song’s name is Glycerine! Not Listerine!”


And that is the story of how I figured out the name of the song that sounds like Listerine sung by that guy in that British band who married that one chick.
