Music Memories

Music has the ability to heal and allows us to remember things otherwise long forgotten. We’ve instinctively always known this, after all, how do we sing along to songs from ten years ago when we forget passwords we use every day? Scientists say it has something to do with the hippocampus region in our brain where music can trigger personal, long-term memories. So, now, it all makes sense!

Recently, I’ve repeatedly heard a song from my past that triggered a specific memory that I had long forgotten. Many years ago, I and two other girls performed in a talent show with this throwback hit and hearing it again made me really happy. Happy that there were no cell phones with cameras back then!
