Maroon 5’s Familiar Memories

When I first heard Maroon 5’s Memories a few months ago, it sounded strangely familiar. I felt like I had absolutely heard the melody before, and just couldn’t place it. When I finally gave in and Googled the song, I found that Memories had borrowed from Pachelbel’s Canon.

Even if you don’t recognize the name, this piece of music has undoubtedly been burned into your brain, as it is regularly used during weddings and as background music during the holiday season. It’s an appropriate choice too. Memories is about loss, and was written following the death of the band’s longtime manager, Jordan Feldstein. It’s a  fitting tribute to pair the lyrics to a piece of music tied to so many celebrations.
