“Mother says I was a dancer before I could walk
She says I began to sing long before I could talk
And I’ve often wondered, how did it all start?
Who found out that nothing can capture a heart
Like a melody can?”

These lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus ring especially true in the light of a recent programme aired on ABC TV’s Catalyst which looks at the connection between music and memory.
