Nostalgic Music, and Emotions.

Hello everybody!

If this is in the wrong section, please let me know!

I’d like to start with a question. Why is it that any time I hear a song that I consider to be nostalgic, I get overly emotional and begin to cry?
The song could be of any genre (the latest being Megitsune by BABYMETAL, a song nobody would think is emotional). I don’t think it’s the nostalgia itself making me cry, as if I feel nostalgia with other activities or objects i don’t feel the same emotional tie to it.

I know this is probably a tough question to answer, but I’m just super curious(even a little embarrassed) about why this happens. any help would be appreciated!
