Study shows our kids inherit our nostalgia for cheesy songs

In point of fact, it's not just the cheesy ones, though those do tend to be popular favorites. Read this article in the Atlantic discusses new research which uncovers the critically important question of why our kids rock out to cheesy songs from our golden years. It's related to a term which sounds super pseudo-scientific and which I am very eager to use soon in conversation called  “cascading reminiscence bumps.”

I was hooked from the title because "Billie Jean" is one of Primo and Terza's all-time favorite songs, and now, I guess we know why. 

So, go grab your kids and rock out to "Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls", why don't you?
