My dad was all about the big showy rock. The most well worn album in his collection was Kiss ALIVE!...and my mum liked Elton John. And Anne Murray. *shudders at latter*

My first 'bells' though? Don't ask. I'm actually kind of ashamed. You can feel properly nostalgic for Abba...not my crap.

1. the best of the dutch top 40 of 1990
2. queen; innuendo
3. skid row; slave to the grind
4. guns 'n roses; apetite for destruction
5. manic street preachers; generation terrorists

well, at least i can say i was condemned to rock 'n roll right fromt he start. and the first one features mc hammer, roxette, nkotb and the 2 live crew. my beloved mother knew 'me so horny' had nasty lyrics, even if she doesn't speak any english. she'd roll her eyes and shake her head like a proper mum should.

Here goes... try not to laugh. . .

Aside from my collection of Glenn Campbell 7" ('Rhintstone Cowboy' is still one of my favorite songs . . .)

1. Blondie - The Best of Blondie (rumblings of coolnes . . .)
2. Buckner & Garcia - Pac Man Fever (what!? I was 7!)
3. Xanadu Sdtk (worpswede, you must have been talking to me!)
4. Urban Cowboy Sdtk (I shared this one with my brother - how we so wanted to ride that mechanical bull!)
5. Quiet Riot - Metal Health

All of these were on vinyl, all of these are still owned by either myself or my brother. How's that for scary! We don't even have record players any longer!

These were all before age 13 and 8th grade, when I finally developed a taste for alternative music:

1. Echo & The Bunnymen - Porcupine
2. Oingo Boingo - Dead Man's Party
3. The Cure - Standing On The Beach (by this time we were on to cassettes)
4. Depeche Mode - Music For The Masses
5. R.E.M. - Chronic Town

1987 was such a watershed year! My brother started listening to rap:

1. N.W.A. - Straight Outta Compton
2. Two Live Crew - ??? (don't remember the title, but it was nasty)
3. Too Short - Life Is Too Short
4. Run DMC - Run DMC
5. Eazy E - Eazy Duz It

Needless to say, we got into a lot of fistfights over who got to use the stereo.

I don't remember which albums they were but they were all KISS.
I was heavily into KISS as a child, no doubt because of my sister who was 10 years older than me. Her taste influenced my taste.
I forget which ones came out when, but I know I had Destroyer, Alive, Alive 2, Love Gun, and Hotter Than Hell....I own none of them now though. Not into KISS at all these days.

Interesting topic.

The very first piece of music I paid for with my own money was a 45 -- had to be back in 1971 or so (I was 10).

George Harrison, My Sweet Lord
It had Isn't It A Pity on the b-side and I played both sides till they were worn out.

As far as LPs go, here's a pretty good guess of the first five.

The Beatles, 1962-66 and Sgt. Pepper
(I inhereted my love of the Beatles from my older sisters)

John Denver, Greatest Hits (the one I feel guilty about)

Jesus Christ Superstar (broadway cast)

The Doors, The Best of The Doors

Okay, now I feel old.

Ah, yes. The Sleestaks. I would cringe whenever the Land Of The Lost crew got caught in the Sleestak cave trying to steal their magic crystals.

first music purchase

Post by russ » Sun Nov 28, 2004 3:50 pm

the first musical purchase I made was the 45 for MY LOVE by Paul McCartney when I was a wee tot of 5 years old. And thus began my lifelong McCartney/Beatles worship.
