Jukebox Memories
 

The year is 1955, and an innocent country swings to Bill Haley & the Comets' Rock Around the Clock.

It's 1964 and the Beatles rule. I Want to Hold Your Hand heads the charts.

The year is 1966, and true to the times, the number one hit is The Ballad of the Green Berets.

By 1969, times have changed, and everyone is singing Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine In.

What kinds of memories can music recall? You may be surprised at the new exhibit Jukebox Memories, one of over forty exhibits that comprise MEMORY, on view from March 23, 2002 - June 23, 2002 at the California Science Center. Listen to three number-one hits from every year between 1955 and 1995 and see what you remember. With each song, the exhibit asks you if you can name the recording artist. But there are many more layers of memory here. Unbidden, they seem to wash over you with every note; your first dance, your first love, the delights and disappointments of years gone by.
Memory looks at the biological, psychological and cultural dimensions of memory through demonstrations, art works, images, sounds and even smells and tastes.
