Embedded in memory.

Many years ago (at least 60), my brother and his university pal decided to perform an 'act' at a uni 'do'.
They dressed up and mimed to the duet from the end of act 1 of Puccini's Madame Butterfly.
Of course the recording (on a record of course) was played a few times in our house as they rehearsed.

By chance, I switched on the radio in time to hear the concluding stanzas of that duet - and I was immediately reverted to that rehearsal (and the house that we left in 1955).

Isn't the human brain marvellous? I don't think I have listened to that since then, yet I could recall the words as they 'appeared'.
