Default Re: Forgetting names of bands/albums/songs

I have always had a hard time remembering the damned names of my own band's original songs. It's pretty embarrassing how many times a tune will get called and I have to say "hey, can you give me the first few notes/chords?" to the guitar player.

But as soon as I hear those first few notes, (assuming it's an established song) I know the song front to back. Weird how I can't remember names but I can remember the song forms and specifics. Kinda like how I can't remember people's names but as soon as I see them or I'm reminded of them, I remember all sorts of things about them and my interactions with them.
