Superpowers



I've recently found out I have a superpower. Of course, I may be exaggerating a bit for dramatic purpose, but it surely feels like a real superpower to me. Something I would never dream in my wildest dreams I would be able to do. Something I've never tried or even intended to do. Something that I feel strangely proud and amused that I can do.

What's my superpower?

I have all the lyrics of every song I've ever heard in my head.
I didn't listen to that music for twenty years? No problem! Put it on and words will come off of my mind.
I didn´t even like that song? Doesn't seems to be an issue,  if I've heard it once, I'll know what it says.


Of course, this is not the superpower I'd wish I had. For starters, what good can I do with it? No clue whatsoever. And what's going on that I will forget what I have for breakfast this morning, but know some random song I've heard many, many breakfasts before? Again, no clue whatsoever.

If you have any idea of a useful way for this exquisite talent (forgive me for such pretentious manners, I am enjoying this as much as I can), please let me know.

I am curious, what's your superpower (or superpowers)?

  1. Love it! What a wonderfully bizarre superpower! You've obviously got a good subconscious auditory memory. I wonder if the music element is crucial or whether if you'd heard poetry recited all your life you would remember all those words? I've been racking my brain to think what you could do with your superpower but I haven't come up with anything yet... You'd be brilliant at karaoke in the dark though!

    1. I think it's the music that triggers it for me, though looking back I see a pattern of retaining information I'd heard.
      I would certainly be an entertainer on karaoke in the dark but I honestly doubt I would be called brilliant :-) (quite unexpectedly, my superpower does not entail a crystalline beautiful voice?!)

  2. Isso é que é um superpoder! Tinha-me dado muito jeito nos escuteiros... E agora tinha um reportório maior para entreter a minha bebé!

    1. "A vida não é deserto não queiras ficar no cais Lenço rubro é rumo certo - Decide tu aonde vais!
      Não queiras ficar no cais. BP é quem te diz..." O que me foste lembrar Ema! Mas confirma-se...se ainda me lembrar da música, a letra aparece do nada!!!(e hoje passei o dia com estas músicas na cabeça e um ror de boas memórias...caramba, era mesmo bom!)

      Confesso que, das que sei de cor, a maior parte são dos escuteiros (em segundo lugar está a B.S. do Rei Leão...).

  3. Parece que afinal a música (ou as canções) esteve sempre presente nos vários momentos da tua vida... Pelo menos uma boa utilização já aí a tens, parece-me: A de reavivar boas memórias :) (agora para que te serve lembrar das letras de canções que não gostas é que não faço ideia!).

    1. Bem visto, Inês, e completamente verdade! Estas músicas dos Escuteiros tem significado para mim sobretudo pelas memórias que me trazem, mas a música pontuou sempre os grandes acontecimentos na minha vida (foi por causa do Pedro ter ido comigo de Vila Real a Lisboa ver a minha banda preferida que começamos a namorar!)
