Have you ever turned a song on the radio and instantly been transported back to a specific scene in a movie? We have. It's these songs that have been indelibly ingrained into our memory and associated with that movie forever. This week we look at some of our favorites and the movies that go along with them on Enjoy Stuff!
Quick! What does this song remind you of? Jay and Shua give each other clips of 10 songs and quiz each other to see if it makes them think of the same movie.

What we’re Enjoying
Jay, along with millions of us, tuned into the newest Disney+ Marvel series ‘Moon Knight’. It’s a pretty unique and mind blowing story. But he’s also been digging into the comic book origins and inspirations too. We recommend it. Shua has been killing random seconds of free time a day playing the ios app Mario Kart Tour. A fun distraction with a lot of fun, creative content and characters.

Be sure to check out Jay’s articles on Retrozap.com. He may not be able to recommend the movie this week, but we can for sure recommend the Retrozap article on the 1992 movie Freejack. This forgettable film stars Emilio Estevez, Mick Jagger, and Anthony Hopkins and had an interesting premise, but a less than perfect execution. The latest Marvel series on Disney+ is here! Now go check out some great filming locations for Moon Knight on MCU Location Scout.
Do you remember your high school science lessons on memory? We sure don’t. But we do know that memories are important for reminiscing about the great stuff we grew up with. All that school learning is something called ‘explicit’ memory. It’s memory that you can remember by thinking about it. Book learning. But the memory you get when you smell that pine and think of a special Christmas, or the song that takes you back to that first make out session is called ‘implicit’ memory.
Implicit memory can be triggered by your senses. These outside stimuli trigger a thought back to another time that you might have been experiencing those senses. Strangely enough, the strongest time of a person’s life that is likely to have these memories is between 10 and 30 years old. Meaning all that nostalgia people have when they are in their 40s is actually a psychological norm.
We love when a particular song triggers a memory of a movie. So Jay and Shua each put together a separate list of songs that take them back to a film. And they try to guess each other’s pick. Are they enough alike that they can match them all?
Do you have songs that make you think of a movie? What kind of emotions do those trigger? Let us know. Come talk to us in the Discord channel or send us an email to email@example.com
