What was the first music you ever bought?
Today is "Relive Your Past By Listening to the First Music You Ever Bought No Matter What It Was No Excuses Day"! So what was the first music you ever bought?
My first record, embarrassing as it is, was "I Never Knew Love Like This Before" by Stephanie Mills. It was a 45, it was 1980 and yes, it was disco. I remember listening to that song all the time seeing as I had no others.
Eventually, I moved up to the Muppet Movie soundtrack and actual '80s pop music. In fact, from a local radio station I won a five-pack of the best-selling albums of 1985:
Prince's Purple Rain
Springsteen's Born in the USA
Van Halen's 1984 (naturally)
Dire Straits' Brothers in Arms
But that was five years later. I did listen to Stephanie Mills' single this morning on YouTube (link below), so I have done my part!
