How do I improve my song memory? I've realized that I'm poor in cramming songs. I only sing one or two lines in most of the songs and it hinders making fun as I play.

    Is it the tune, or the words that evade you?

Memorizing music is achieved through repetition: by listening to a recorded version of the piece and by playing and/or singing that piece over and over again.


You say it's the lyrics that hang you up. Option 1: learn to scat, and then the words won't matter. Option 2: memorize the lyrics by writing them down. Each time you write them down, you'll have fewer gaps. Also, try to picture a visual story to help you with the memorization.
