Depressed elderly man reacts to music from his era

The video above is really touching, it doesn’t give all the facts about him or where he’s from and why he’s in the nursing home, but his reaction to music is undeniable. This acts as a reminder of the power of the brain, how stimulus through sense of sound can awaken neurological pathways that have remained dormant.

It vaguely reminded me of a film I like, The Music Never Stopped.
