Why does a particular piece of music come to mind? Suddenly, without any obvious trigger, one begins to hum or whistle a tune that seems "to pop" into one's head. One could be in the shower and without any obvious cause find oneself singing a song or a section of a symphony.

Is this determined by emotion; brain chemistry; or a progression of thoughts that are associated with specific music?
