The Beatles are a huge influence in my life and will always be one of my favourite bands. I started listening to them when I was young because my dad's band used to continuously play their songs. When I listen to The Beatles, I remember certain days when I was young; I find it amazing that music can trigger your memory like that.
I read an article on why a particular song can trigger a memory. A link for the article is below (if you would like to read it), but I thought this quote explained an sense of nostalgia.
“Most people have this idea that music can be a powerful memory cue,” Harris said. “You hear a song on the radio and it brings up memories of senior prom or graduationThat’s why oldies stations are so popular — not because the music is good but because it reminds us of specific times in our lives,” he said.
Music has always been a huge part of my life. My parents love music and I grew up listening to A LOT it. Also, as I mentioned before, my father and uncle also played in a band together and they covered many by The Beatles. When I listen to certain songs by them, it always reminds me of listening to them play when I was young. I LOVED going to my uncle John's because it meant my dad and their band mates were going to jam. My love for and appeciation for The Beatles started at a young age because I heard their songs so many times.
One song that brings me back to them playing together is "Here Comes the Sun". Every time I hear it, I remember great memories.

Let me know what particular song brings you back to a time in your life.
