Some lyrics from 'Brian Wilson' by the Barenaked Ladies - link to the video.
Drove downtown in the rain Nine-thirty on a Tuesday night Just to check out the late-night record shop Call it impulsive, Call it compulsive Call it insane But when I'm surrounded I just can't stop It's a matter of instinct It's a matter of conditioning and a matter of fact You can call me Pavlov's Dog Ring a bell and I'll salivate How'd you like that?
