Default song memory

So I'm doing work around the house yesterday, listening to an old collection of my favorite songs, most of which are 20 30 40 plus years old...And it occurs to me that I remember every word, every musical nuance, all my favorite parts...everything, crystal clear. But like a lot of people I can't remember what I did 3 days ago. How is it that I have amazing memory for songs and lousy memory for other things? It's like I have a special part of my brain just for music storage that works infinitely better than my normal memory function. Can anyone relate to this?
