OK, fess up, how many of you experience something like this?  As a teen/young adult of the 80's, my brain knows the lyrics of, oh, 1,765 songs or somewhere thereabouts.  I can sing along with every single top ten single of the 80's...but the other day at work we were talking about dinner and someone asked what we had last Friday.  Um.  I couldn't remember.  

So 80's, 70's, 60's songs filling your head vs what you needed in the kitchen, a meal from a week ago, a name, it's all the same I guess.  Maybe our brains have a limited capacity and I filled mine up with too many songs?  HA!

Enjoy your day!


  1. I've been told that Doorways have the ability to suck thoughts from your brain, hence the inability to remember why you entered said room.
    I blame my lack of memory on our electronics. We used to have to open a phone book or just plain remember phone numbers, addresses, birthdays. Now we store all that information in our phones. We don't actually write anything down anymore like grocery/to-do lists. Heck, we snap a picture of a business card or poster so we can recall the info. Sigh. Technology is awesome but maybe not so great for the brain.

  2. We sing songs and they rhyme. That is why they are so easy to remember, plus we do this beaucoup times over the years. Dinner last Friday? Did you even say it aloud? Over and Over? thought not! I can remember phone numbers I have not dialed in 30 years! And, they are not relatives. But, the last number I called. Not so much.

  3. Ohhhh yeahhhh ! I find it helps if I just go back to where I just came from , to help jog the thought. .....Don't know how you are going to get back to last Friday 😊😊😊

  4. No Kidding! I remember celelbrity names and bios, but I can't remember what I was suppose to buy at the grocery store! Dish soap! Dang! laura in CO

  5. All the time. I remember whole chucks of school musicals, choir songs, popular music and heaps of Monty Python!

  6. OMG I laughed so hard at that one because's so true, 80's songs for me!
