PERSONAL NARRATIVE —
Where does your favorite song transport you?
Is there a song in your life that unlocks a treasure trove of memories? You hear those first few notes, and all of a sudden you're transported back to a specific time in your life?
There is much scientific evidence of the ways in which music jogs our memories. Some researchers have even found that patients who have Alzheimer’s Disease can remember music after the majority of their other memories have slipped away.
For this prompt, we’d like to know what your favorite song conjures for you. What is the song? Who sings it? Where were you when you first heard it? Why does it carry significance for you? And what memories does it stir?
We look forward to reading your reflections… and adding to our playlists!
