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?
Same here. I can name all Metallica, Maiden and Who albums and tell you all the past and present members of those bands. It just sticks in my head but I can't remember how to do certain maths problems.
