There is a peak period in life when people absorb memorable pop music: what people regard as the music of ‘my generation’ begins around the age of fourteen and ends somewhere in their late twenties. Lists of the top pop hits of all time are popular. A number of stories recounted by listeners reveal how sound memories work. More recently, the distribution and sharing of music via the Internet has changed the way we listen to music. Social media also offer new ways of calling up musical memories.
