S. had Alzheimer's, her short term memory was very short, but she could remember entire lyrics from songs from the 60's and 70's so I started building a playlist with her, using spotify and a bluetooth speaker; I became her personal dj. I would try out things, artists, songs; when she would start singing, I would save the song into our playlist. It was wonderful to see her becoming alive and connected. Although I had researched about brain, memory, Alzheimer's and music, her personal relation with music and her capacity to sing (well and in tune) started a new journey and we would sing along. This is a selection of some of our favourite songs and a way to remember her; let the melodies resonate across the universe!
