“Funny how a melody, sounds like a memory
Like a Soundtrack to a July Saturday Night”
— Eric Church, Springsteen
Songs have a way of taking you back to a particular place and time. Sometimes you might only have a vague recollection of the event, but the music can be tied to the emotion. Some songs might make you feel happy because of when you first listened to them. I have songs that aren’t particularly “summer” songs, but they always make me think of summertime.
Music is a powerful form of memory.
