Need Your Girlfriend to Remember Something? Talk Like Barry White

Barry White was a talented musician that will be remembered for years as the spiritual, if not actual, father of many children. He also apparently is the key to getting your girlfriend to remembering to DVR Deadliest Warrior for once. Yes, the sultry sounds of White means she can remember. But why?

It's hard to believe science actually put some time into this one, considering how few scientists get near people of the opposite sex. But they did, and they came up with the following results: if you tell a woman something in a deep, male voice, she's much more likely to remember it than with a normal or high male voice. This is one of several reasons nobody remembers Andy Dick.

Lower pitched female voices just mostly got responses along the lines of "Did you get some truck stop waitress to record this?"

So why does the female brain remember what a low male voice says? Opinions vary, but the research team running this thinks it's so the woman will remember the man with the voice better, not that she'll better remember what she said. There could be any number of reasons for this: the female brain wants to remember males it finds more aggressive, and the deeper the voice, the more intimidated people are.

Or Mother Nature could just be sick and tired of the same old relationship jokes and she wanted to give us a new one. That'd be nice, we're sick of hearing jokes about how men don't do the dishes.
