Memory Bump

We all tend to lay down more memories between the ages of 10 and 30 than at other times in our lives. This is called the Memory Bump. 🧠 We also recognise songs from this era more quickly than from other points in our lives.

The Memory Bump is a period of our lives that is filled with many memorable events. This, coupled with music’s relationship with the brain, means that the songs we listened to as teens and young adults become embedded in the memories of the most important people, places and events from this era.

This powerful effect is not just true for music, but also for films, TV shows, and hobbies from this period of our lives.
