why don't you invent a time machine and go find out? or maybe you could just invent a time machine and give it to me.

Nah I would probably end up messing with the space time continuum...

If I did make them listen to Prince in the 1500s he would probably have become a world religion......which I would probably sign up to

Scott Joplin - various tracks. My friend gave me a CD of old wax recordings of the man himself and it is pure brilliance.

Aside from my CDs and tapes of classical music, the oldest thing I've got is probably The Sun Sessions by Elvis Presley.

The album itself isn't old but the songs are pretty old.

Hank Williams Sr. - 20 Greatest Hits

or maybe

Howlin Wolf - Bluesmaster

Probably Django Reinhardt. Stuff is from 1935-1940. I've also got a couple Louis Armstrong compilations that don't have dates on them, but songs might be just as old.

Composition wise, gotta be Beethoven.

The oldest song I have is an original 45 recording of (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction by The Rolling Stones. It's very scratchy and worn, but still neat to have. It actually belonged to my Mother's best friend, and it somehow ended up in my grandmother's attic. I like it because it's like a little musical time machine on a round piece of plastic. The biggest problem we had when I found it, was how to play it...the old family record player had sadly bitten the dust years ago. In the end, I played it on my sister's plastic, box-type player, which projected a crappy, hollow sound--but ultimately charming.
