Music Memory - Tina G.

Music Memory is sponsored by the Alzheimer Society of Toronto, offering the "Music For Memory Project":  a program based on the effects of music and stimulation on people with dementia, by providing them with iPods containing personalized music. For more information, visit

This week, new listener Tina G. shares her music memory and the nostalgic power of music in general.

“I'm a relatively new listener.  I've discussed music memories with friends before … I find it amazing how music can be so nostalgic and take you back to a memory that feels like it happened only yesterday.

One of my favourites is hearing a wonderful young girl singing “Girl from Ipanema” at a karaoke night during a trip to Mexico.  Now every time I hear that song it brings me back to that trip!”
