Reminding a song after 30 years of inactivity¶

After the Mass and a meeting with fr Alfonso, I was on my way home, waiting for the bus. I noticed that I had the melody of a song in my head. I tried to also restore the words. But wasn’t able. After several minutes of trying to remember the words, I recorded at least the melody on my phone.
At home, I sang the melody to Mari, hoping that she would recognize it. But while still playing it back, I get the answer. It was the melody of a Carnival song from my youth (sung by “De Höhner”):
Actually this song was not completely inactive for 30 years. I guess that whistle it for myself occasionally. I probably heard here and there, e.g. when we were in Eupen for Carnival.
This story is an example of how important music is for remembering messages.
