The story: after a night of heavy drinking, the next morning someone found they’d recorded a song the previous evening but the handwritten title was nearly impossible to read, thus “In The Garden Of Eden” is now forever known as “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida”.

The other version is that the singer was so blitzed that another band member misunderstood what he was singing and wrote the title down phonetically. Same basic idea.

In which country did the word bungalow originate? 

I am pretty sure it's an Asian word, so I am going to go with Thailand, solely as a guess because that is what this forum is all about.

 

As an aside, do you know how to confuse a blonde? Tell her you know a guy who lives in a blue bungalow, with blue floors, blue walls, blue ceilings and blue furniture, then ask her what colour the stairs are?? :mad0261:

Good guess but alas not the correct one.  You are correct it is an Asian word, a clue is in the sound of the word.  An area in an Asia country.
