Embarrassed,The first song you bought

Someone who likes the Thompson twins got me thinking, what was the very first single, album, cassette, CD, download you ever bought.
My first single on 7" vinyl was Madonna like a virgin and the first cassette (full album) was bon Jovi, slippery while wet. I’ve come along way since.

I like this Paul.
First vinyl album I bought for myself was Mud Rock by Mud
First vinyl single I bought was Rhythm Stick by Ian Dury and the blockheads.
First cassette tape I bought was probably something by Madness or the Specials, I can’t really remember as I had been tapeing a lot of stuff. I can still remember when my dad brought home his first Tape to Tape deck. Opened up a whole new world.
First CD I bought was Dark Side of the Moon Pink Floyd, because I’d heard how the sound quality was “supposed” to be better.
I’ve not actually bought a download as I stream through Spotify but I have a load of downloaded stuff through them. Can’t remember what the first one was though.

Very first cassette tape I owned was grade one. The Culture Club (Boy George) in the early 80/‘s lol. We had lots of vinyl for our big honkin old stereo but I didn’t own those. Wait, I did own a Sesame Street vinyl and other records. Loved playing those. Had my own little record player with a penny to weigh down the arm lol

Omg, and for funsies, my first digital bought music was not paid for but was painful to find in my ignorance. I, being suburban white bread from the '80s, did not know what a mixtape even was.

Mine was either Wilson Philips or Richard Marx. First concert I ever went to was Richard Marx. Funny thing is, I don’t remember a single song he ever did.

Oh man! I forgot about this one! That may have been my first cassette, actually. I did a weird dance with some friends for a talent show in third grade to that song.

No shame :sweat_smile: I had The Simpsons Sing the Blues album on cd aswell. I bet I could still sing along to most of it. Homer singing ‘Born under a Bad Sign’ is classic stuff :grin:
