200 songs in her head: Audrey Willey, 94, strikes the final notes of the classic song “Danny Boy” as she performs piano for a Thanksgiving lunch gathering at the Southside Senior & Community Center on Tuesday in Spokane. Willey has some 200 songs she plays from memory. “I don’t have to carry music around. It’s in my computer,” she said, as she pointed to her brain. She started playing at the center a year ago and prefers World War II-era songs, with the most requested being “In the Mood.”
