    For me, it's thinking of someone, seeing something or someone, that triggers a certain song

    Or a song reminds me of someone or something.

    Honestly I always have songs playing in my head. I think certain people just connect to music differently, some escape it others don't. From the second I wake up to the second I pass out music plays in my head.

    Only other people I have heard that are like this are musicians, however I am not so... Idk.

    Maybe hear or use a phrase in conversation that reminds you of a lyric.

    Great, now thanks to this thread title I have this in my head:

    "Electronic music is human sound adapting to indulge technology, and for some, it feels like the signature sound of energy. New and abstract sounds over hypnotic rhythms can conjure vast soundscapes for escape, pleasure, and transcendence."

    If they are seagulls then maybe there is some dead fish around no?

    There's a reason it's called pop music.

    Whenever I watch the film "Ben Hur", Billy Joel's song "Uptown Girl" pops into my head.

    Not sure about the pinch and poke, that’s gross, I’ll take a refreshing Coke though.
