I swear sometimes the simplest things are the hardest to remember! If I meet new people and they tell me there names 5 minutes later it's like "what was your name again?" I cannot remember song lyrics too easily no matter how many times I've listened to them. And movies, watching a movie many times and I can't repeat famous movie quotes or remember half the actors in them. And I cannot tell you how many times in a large crowd I have went up to the wrong people thinking they were someone else!
Yet I remember things from childhood vividly and other things most people forget, go figure?

I frequently forget names within 5 seconds after being introduced, unless the name sparks a memory for me.1
