Music Moment

Were you ever in a public place, a restaurant, mall, or store and suddenly everything  glazes around you for a moment....you go someplace else for a brief second as the background song makes you 

1.Take notice - perk up you ears mentally
2.You must identify the song at least title. For some of us we MUST name artist and if at all    possible year too (this could be in your head or outloud - depending on who you are with)
3. Go back to what you are doing as if nothing had happened.

The whole sequence may take a split second or a couple of seconds but there you are staring off into space for a moment as your brain tries to pull out that saved music file from the music library in your mind. I thought it was only me but I was sitting in a diner the other week with the kids and the dh and I actually saw that look on his face. He had been in the middle of a sentence about I don't remember what but he stopped, looked up towards the ceiling and then said "Rock the boat"  which I answered "Hues Coorporation" and then he finished his sentence. We laughed that it tends to be a contest with us but that time he got that eye-looking away face so I called it a music "moment". I have been known to do this many times. But now it has a name.

i take notice when music catches my attention, but i'm not big on remembering names so i usually dont bother to find out.

I worked in a record store - one of those little shops that you could walk into, hum the few bars of a tune and we could find you what you wanted. So we had to know all kinds of music.

I have many Music Moments!
Sometimes those I'm with look at me like I'm nuts.
