When I seem to be deep in thought, my brain is really doing something like this:
I like the phrase “hoi polloi”, but I never hear it used much.
Wasn’t there a band named Hoi Polloi?
Yeah, there was. I think they did a song I really liked back in the day.
No, it wasn’t them. They had a similar-sounding name, though. It was two words that rhymed.
Scritti Politti. That’s the band.
Now I want to hear that song.
