Another note about music and nostalgia

My sense of nostalgia is all screwed up because I listen to music from so many eras. For instance, I just heard "You're Gonna Lose That Girl" by the Beatles and immediately jumped back to my junior high years. That song was released in 1965, two years before I was born, but it triggers memories for me just as if it was released in 1980. When I have "Remember when . . ." conversations with my peers, I have to do a bit of mental sorting because Cyndi Lauper and Connie Francis are both filed under the same year in my mental record collection :-).
