And now for an interesting but somewhat depressing music article.
Interesting article... but I think #2 is bullshit.
I was listening to stuff like Lou Bega and Backstreet Boys (Yes, I admit it) when I was that age... Mid teens, I listened to generic pop, mid-late teens, punk, and now, metal and electronica.
Although there were a couple of other points I do agree a lot with, such as the linking songs to happy/sad memories and such... My best example is the Reanimation version of Crawling from Linkin Park. I used to listen to that album all the time back when I was addicted to EverQuest (Long, long time ago), and now, any time I hear that song, a particular area in the game pops into my mind (Specifically, the hunting grounds just outside the main Vah'Shir city on the moon Luclin... for those of you who played it).
I also associate the song "I Stand Alone" by Godsmack with a particular moment in High School when I was kicked out of Pure Math 10 for cracking a textbook across the back of someone's head in the middle of a lesson.
Interesting thing the mind is.
