Why we cling to the music of our youth: I have my theories. First, it reminds us of specific times, usually good times, and just the feeling of being young. Few memories are as good as the great rock concerts of years ago. Then, there’s age difference that affects our perspective. Our musician heroes were approximately 10 years older or the same age as us. But sometimes, I think the main reason we cling more to the music we’ve always loved more than whatever became popular since is because we’re full. How many more songs can fit in one brain?
