The Lemon single was my first single, and Zooropa was my first album.

Funny how my taste hasn't changed that much in a decade and a half.

No 8 tracks for me

I bought 45 rpm singles too. I actually went to take a look at the ones I have and the oldest ones are:
Roberta Flack - Killing Me Softly
Jim Croce - I Have To Say I Love You In A Song
Jefferson Airplane - White Rabbit
Helen Reddy - Delta Dawn
Sweet - Ballroom Blitz

The first records I owned included several by the Monkees, the Partridge Family and Donny Osmond. I specifically remember buying Steppenwolf's Greatest Hits.

First Cassette - A Night On The Town by Rod Stewart

First CD - Melissa Etheridge - Melissa Etheridge

i unfortunately can't remember my first tape. i've been buying those since i was like a kid! or are you talking bought? as in literally bought with my own money, not received as a gift? in that case...this is the first stuff i purchased with my allowance/gift money/real money later in life.

CD album*: mariah carey's music box
CD single: duran duran's perfect day
12" record: U2's all i want is you (the cool limited edition version with the pics of the band members)
7" record*: uhhh...i have 100s of these so i can't even remember. in recent memory, i'm thinking it was U2's a celebration.
tape*: U2's zooropa
lp: something by duran duran, i'm thinking rio.
8-track: closest i've come is bidding on a copy of dd's rio. yeah they were making 8 tracks as late as 1982. wtf?


*gifts: for christmas of 93 my parents gave my janet jackson's janet as well cuz you obviously need a cd to play in the cd player.

my mom bought me 7" singles when i was a kid. who knows what my first one was. ones i specifically remember getting are inxs' what you need, never tear us apart, and new sensation; huey lewis and the news' small world, b-52's roam.

and as for tapes, who knows what the first one my parents bought for me was. i wore out wham's make it big when i was a kid. losah!! but i wasn't totally dorky, i got inxs' kick in 87 and U2's achtung baby in 91. so you see, i was a little bit cool. it's just up to you to decide whether the achtung baby outweighs the debbie gibson. just please remember i was only like eight!
