Bad Breath in Music

Monday, April 18th, 2011

Music is everywhere within our daily lives. We hear it in the car, at home, on TV and even at the grocery store. Musicians often say they write about everyday life which often includes love, hate, death, fear, job and even bad breath! Here are a few songs from songwriters that don’t tip toe around the subject of halitosis:

Tupac Shakur’s “Check Out Time” is one of the few songs noted to address morning breath.  Shakur writes, “Now I’m up early in the morn’, breath stinkin’ as I’m yawnin’.” The speaker has just woken up in a hotel room. Morning breath is a very common occurrence and can be easily fixed by brushing with TheraBreath toothpaste and then rinsing (without water) with TheraBreath Oral Rinse both before you go to bed and when you wake up. Morning breath is often due to sleeping with your mouth open, which dries out your mouth and leaves a great environment for anaerobic bacteria to cultivate bad breath. To prevent morning breath, make sure to keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water each day. TheraBreath’s line of probiotics is always a great way to keep your breath fresh, especially in the morning.

Blink 182 has a funky song called “Does my Breath Smell?” It’s a big odd because the song doesn’t once ask the actual question or even mention halitosis. It’s mostly a rhetorical question the song writer asks because he is unable to attract members of the opposite sex. Bad breath has been listed as the #1 turn off in people looking for potential partners. Make sure to always have some TheraBreath gum or mints with you so you’re sure to be ready whenever a chance to find a date arises.
