I got an idea for a cool thread from reading Staffy's thread from early music. What was your VERY first favorite song you remember as a kid? My first were Reach Out I'll Be There by the Four Tops (not a bad first if I say so myself!) and Don't Look Back by Boston...my parents had great taste in music!





What were yours?

Propably some crappy one-hit-wonder pop song that nobody remembers - I mean as a child you have no specific taste in music; you like what sounds catchy!

I remember that I was fascinated as a little child of 5 years by the song and video of Rattamahatta by Sepultura (back in the days when there was Metal on MTV!). I was terrified by the scarry video and sinister sound of the song but I also couldn't look or hear away when it was on...

When I were a lad, all those many years ago, I grew up in a house full of music. My Dad had been a semi-pro Jazz Trumpet player and was also very keen on English Folk Music. My Mum was also musical and was a self-taught accordian player (mainly Folk type stuff). I also had an older Brother who was (and still is a Music Collector) so I don't really remember any one specific tune. I remember my Dad having an album called 'Jazz Brittania' which was all British groups but playing proper New Orleans style Trad Jazz whilst from my Brothers Room I could hear early 70's Glam Rock (The Sweet, Suzi Quatro, T Rex etc) and on the Radio I remember a lot of the Beatles and the Stones!

Aahh, the good old days when you could understand the lyrics!! laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

As my father was a guitar player in a "The Shadows" tribute band I'm pretty sure I had Apache, Atlantis and Wonderful Land stuck in my head when I was very young...

Ah, yes... For me it was about mid seventies when it was more or less conscious listening. My parents had a lot of pink floyd, CCQ ao, so that was great, growing up... Father also played bass in a band that covered a lot of CCQ, so my early ones:
