Let's go back as far as you can remember. What are your 1st songs and or 1st albums?

1. Johnny Cash - Ring of Fire - I was still in diapers singing along with this one.

2. Steve Miller Band - The Joker - The 1st time I heard this I was playing on the floor with my light bright and it came on the radio. I remember my Parents coming in the room and making me turn it down.

3. Alice Cooper - School's Out - My older Brother had a friend over in this 70's custom van all crush velvet inside and jamming on this song. Coolest van I'd ever seen.

4. Paper Lace - The Night Chicago Died - We would put on little shows for the family and sing along with this song. My brother and I would do the intro parts using our SSP cars that had the rip cord you would pull. We were convinced that they used those to make the sounds in the Anyone remember SSP cars?


1. T-Rex - Electric Warrior - I love this album.

Let's hear some of your memories of songs or albums.

My first albums would be the following:

Rob Dougan - Furious Angels

Matrix Reloaded Soundtrack

Those two were the first albums I ever bought, I was not heavily into buying albums till I hit about 15 strangely.

But in the case of songs, my first were:

1. Duran Duran - Ordinary World (I listened to this at age 5)
2. Collective Soul - World I Know
3. Collective Soul - Shine
4. Pearl Jam - Alive
5. Scorpions - Rock You Like A Hurricane
6. Neil Young - Old Man
7. Neil Young - My My Hey Hey (And Hey Hey My My)
8. Seal - Kiss From A Rose (I am making a heavy metal version on this one!)
9. Metallica - Enter Sandman
10. Metallica - The Unforgiven

There are many more, but those were like the primary ones I would listen to and hear all of the time when I was younger.

WHat did he say when he first heard Black Sabbath? My first recollection of albums when I was a kid (early 60's) were Elvis, Beach Boys, and Beatles albums. My favorite was the Beach Boys. I spent part of my early childhood in California and of course the Beach Boys were mega-huge out there. All my friends wanted a surf board and listened to the Beach Boys. Now I'm a bluesman in Kansas City, my how things change. Later...

My first record was a comedy record. It had stuff like The Red Baron, some song about the meatball rolling off the table, Tinny Winny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. All that junk. I guess thats why to this day I dont take music very seriously.

My first rock record was Kiss Alive, so the comedy continued...............................

After that I got Aerosmith Toys In The Attic

Haha this is a funny thread.
ok, the first ever music album I listened to was DC Talk, the album being Jesus Freak. Then I started listening to Audio Adrenaline, the album being Some Kind of Zombie, i think? yea, they are both christian bands, my mom was a hardcore christian, so no nirvana or anything for me!

Lol. My mother luckily made me listen to the radio, it was all classic rock and diversified. The only thing I can remember being played on CD constantly was Elton John. Which after some time can drive you up a wall.

Tom Jones... :cry: I heard that song way too many times, somehow, I do not know till this day. I must ask this to anyone who likes Tom Jones... Why?... Lol. No offense, just bleh. Must be because I am a metalhead.

Well anyhow, hope all is well with you Greeniemagic, nice to see you posting (I have not seen you post since I first got here).

Peace out, GuitarAnatomy.
