  • Why Old Songs Bring Back Memories

    04/17/2018 7:22:08 PM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 88 replies
    Music can serve as a particularly effective retrieval cue especially if you’re talking about a piece of music that you associate with a certain context. A song like “The National Anthem” or “Happy Birthday” (which we hear all the time) that’s not so helpful – but a song that was played during that certain summer, then that song is going to evoke memories specific to that time and place.

    An all-male choir in the United Kingdom that’s been in existence since 1956 is under assault by a local police chief, who’s demanding that women be granted access to the group in order to promote “gender equality.” Peter Goodman, who reportedly took over the Derbyshire Police force last summer, insists that the historic Derbyshire Constabulary Male Voice Choir’s men-only tradition runs counter to the force’s equal opportunity policies, which he wants to see changed to favor women at the expense of men. Back in September, Goodman asked the choir’s chairman, Kevin Griffiths, to begin accepting females, to which he declined....

    The abrupt ouster last month of Mike Huckabee from the Country Music Association’s charitable board just 24 hours after his appointment sends a strong signal that Nashville’s cultural revolution is in full swing. An organized right-wing backlash against the removal of the conservative gadfly and presidential aspirant quickly fizzled, and Music City breathed a sigh of relief. The swiftness of the forced departure of Huckabee, who has been vocal about his support for the NRA and objections to same-sex marriage and parenting, underscores how the country music industry has become a nexus of discussion for two of America’s hot-button topics:...

    I was a junior high schooler growing up in the Bible Belt when I first heard the concept album “Jesus Christ Superstar.” The retelling of the events leading up to the crucifixion of the Son of God Christ made a household name of the then-22 year old composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and – slightly lesser so – 26 year old lyricist Tim Rice. Tonight, NBC is presenting “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert.” This Easter production stars, among others, John Legend, the Academy Award winner and 10-time Grammy Award winner, as Jesus and Alice Cooper, the son of a Christian...

    CHICAGO – A Chicago teenager named Tyshaun Granger was reportedly fired from his job at McDonalds for allegedly placing his “mixtape” in children’s Happy Meal’s, rather than the usual toy. Tyshaun apparently included his rap mixtape in the happy meals within a paper disc holder. On the mixtapes was printed the title of the project; “Tales Of A Real N*gga” was printed on the discs with a sharpie marker. “I bought my son a happy meal and inside came a mysterious cd” says Sarah Platt, “I, like any other parent, would assume the cd was for children. I played the...

    Pop megastar Taylor Swift, in a rare political statement, came out in strong support on Friday for the Parkland student-led campaign for gun control in a lengthy social media post. “No one should have to go to school in fear of gun violence. Or to a nightclub. Or to a concert. Or to a movie theater. Or to their place of worship,” Swift wrote an Instagram post. “I’ve made a donation to show my support for the students, for the March For Our Lives campaign, for everyone affected by these tragedies, and to support gun reform.”

    How can I tell I'm getting old? My go-to music choices don't even come close to popular music currently topping the charts. When I drive my son to preschool, I proudly blast the classic rock station -- which now plays music from the 1990s. If listening to the likes of Pearl Jam and U2 makes me an old fogey? I can deal with that. Perhaps this is something my parents would have argued a few decades ago, but I firmly believe that there is a good amount of music from the '90s that was so solid it will never be...

    The Duke of Cambridge bestowed the honour on the Liverpool-born star at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace. "It means a lot actually," the musician told the BBC. "It means recognition for the things we've done. I was really pleased to accept this." The honour comes 53 years after the Beatles were all awarded the MBE - and Starr said he had missed his bandmates' companionship this time round. "I was a bit shaky today on my own," he said. (SNIP) Asked whether he wanted to be known as Sir Ringo, the musician, whose real name is Richard Starkey, replied: "I...
