How to describe things like folk sayings or old songs that get stuck in your head and never come out, repeating over and over until you want to beat yourself with a blunt object.

You know, songs like "Don't Worry, Be Happy" or "Telephone Hour" from Bye Bye Birdie. *evil laughter*

I forgot that I knew the words to every song by New Kids on the Block until tonight, when my next-door-neighbors cranked them way the fuck up. I'm also a repository for birthdays (even those of people I no longer know or care about), Simpsons quotes, sad faces and patterns of light.

Shopping lists.

If someone mentions that they need something, I remember it and it stays on my list until they get it or I do. My mother has been dead for four years and she still needs 60 watt lightbulbs.
