Most of us have stored some favorite songs in our memory banks. We have associated certain words of songs with particular moments in our lives: romances, tragedies, departures, breakups, or events that we could never fully re-experience without recalling those particular songs. When we remember a song, or hear a song that transports us back to our pasts, our lives become enriched with that personal and intimate sense of continuity.
