Any psychologists here? Doesn't have to be, but I'm interested in one word I can't remember.

You know when somebody creates something, for example, composes a piece, or writes a story, and then realizes (or doesn't) that he actually didn't create anything. Instead, he subconsciously pulled it from some part of his memory and just thought how it is truly his work. Here is my example to make it more clear: Some years ago, I was improvising on a piano and made a theme I quite liked. I showed it to my mother and asked her what she thought about it and she said: "Oh, that is that "XY" song by Elvis." This is probably the first time I realized I made something without being aware at all that I heard it somewhere before.

I am quite sure there is a word for this phenomenon, but I can't remember it nor find it. Does anybody know the answer?

The word is PLAGIARISM and it's a CRIME!

Plagiarism

and
Accidental Plagiarism
are the more common terms. The history is very interesting as it use to not be a crime, and even now it has such complex legality it obviously needs to be over hauled.

But I think the word you are looking for is

Kleptomnesia

Hope that helps.

> I am very familiar with Elvis, but had no idea he did the XY song. Sounds nothing like him, really shows his impressive musical abilities to pull it off like that

Eh, I think neither of those are the one. I'm fairly sure there is a latin definition of it. And, while it technically is plagiarism, I'm not going down that route here, I was thinking about times when creators use some idea, just a piece of something from their subconscious, they just don't realize it didn't just pop in their head from nowhere. It was something they actually heard or seen before. Yes, in my case I composed a whole chorus but that was just an overblown example.

>XY meme
You're a funny guy. But yeah, it was actually "Can't help falling in love with you" if you really want to know.
