Have you ever been at a concert, gotten deep into a song or a jam, and temporarily forgotten what that song you were rocking out to was called? We’ve all been there. And now we have a word for it.
There should be a word for that moment in a jam when you’re so enthralled by it and just so in it that you completely forget what song it is.

You may one day visit Merriam-Webster and find the following entry:
jam·ne·sia | \jam-ˈnē-zhə \
1. A partial or total inability to remember what song a band is currently playing.
2. A gap is someone’s memory while listening to music.
Looking to use Jamnesia in a sentence? Try this:
“I was getting down so hard to “Tweezer” that I got a little jamnesia and had to ask my buddy what song they were playing.”
“I remember moe. opened up with “Happy Hour Hero” but I was lost in the jam and ended up with jamnesia until Rob returned to the chorus.”
Look for Jamnesia in the DSM VI.
