Your performance of it does not.
I do know the song, but have not performed it in many years. I do not
consider my memory of it as a meme, in any way, as you know.
I do consider the time I performed it with my children to be a meme. And
if they remember it enough to perform it again, the meme will be
replicated. But there is no meme in my head, and no 'meme-ory' (which is
a nice little coinage, I think, to bolster the contention that memes are
mental items) apart from the usual memory.
Why is 'meme-ory' required by the meme-as-mental-item model?
