I came across an interesting quote tonight:
Music is a total constant. That’s why we have such a strong visceral connect to it, you know? Because a song can take you back instantly to a moment, or a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed in your or the world, that one song stays the same, just like that moment
Personally, I can attest to that. Sometimes, I will randomly come across a song, or lyrics, or melody that will instantly remind me of a particular moment that was once significant to me. Yet for some reason, memories like those just float in the back of your mind and it seems all it takes is just a little cue or trigger to bring everything back. It’s funny, I was just discussing music with a friend today and when I heard a particular song, you can’t help but associate it from the moment you first heard it. Who you were with, what you were doing, what you were wearing, how you felt, etc. WOW. It’s no wonder people spend so much $ on Itunes!
