Abstract: The following properties are in the present literature associated with thebehavior of super-cooled glass-forming liquids: faster than exponential growthof the relaxation time, dynamical heterogeneities, growing point-to-setcorrelation length, crossover from mean field behavior to activated dynamics.In this paper we argue that these properties are also present in a much simplersituation, namely the melting of the bulk of an ordered phase beyond a firstorder phase transition point. This is a promising path towards a bettertheoretical, numerical and experimental understanding of the above phenomenaand of the physics of super-cooled liquids. We discuss in detail the analogiesand the differences between the glass and the bulk melting transitions.
