    What was the first single and album you ever bought? Mine are not very flattering at all. You know how many people will say something really cool. Well, mine give me slight less street cred

    First single: Britney Spears - Crazy

    First Compilation album: Now 40

    First proper album: (I actually really can't remember, but i think it may have been Prodigy - The Fat Of The Land, OR Eminem - The Marshall Mathers L.P. which is quite a good salvation after the previous two)

    Others?

    With my own money: Catching up with Depeche Mode (I was 8 or 9)

    Made my parent purchase: Business As Usual by Men At Work when I was about 5

    prior to those it was all my parents beatles, beach boys, elvis, simon and gfunk... etc.

    First single I bought - Say Say Say by Jackson and McCartney when I was 6 (made my folks buy it) and later I recall making them buy "We Are The World" single. Please be lenient... i was like 6.

    My parents also bought be Thriller when it came out and I loved the picture of Michael Jackson with the baby tiger inside. :o

    OMG THATS RIGHT!!! My older sister had Duran Duran... and I used to take it out of her little boom box and play it myself...

    "Save a Prayer" rocked the world
    I just looked it up and it was 82... years before DM...

    Oh god... I was the only 5 year old on my street who tuned into WLIR religiously.

    Ahhhh the 80's - its all become a blur...

    This was one of my very early purchases, I believe it was the first cassette I bought. I also remember an 8-track of something, I think it was Rick Springfield.

    I did have some good 7-inch singles, those were the first things I ever bought. If I looked at the Top 40 for 1980-81, I could probably remember what they were.

    Nope, I doubt Moz would hire me for anything based on Men at Work and Rick Springfield. Oh well. I'll have to choose a new life goal now.

    Wow...what was I thinking????

    1st single...was either 'O.P.P.' by Naughty By Nature or 'Summertime' by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince.

    Hold on...it gets worse....
    1st Album....Vanilla Ice's 'To The Extreme' which was only redeemed by my purchase of Bon Jovi's 'New Jersey' at the same time. :cool:

    BJ does not redeem that purchase in my book. Sorry pal.

    The first album I think I bought was The Doors greatest hits. And shockingly I never bought a single, just recieved them as gifts apparently so the first single I received was You Have Killed Me. Weird.

    Slippery When Wet was big when the Beastie Boys License to Ill was really big...

    This was my first album. It was. And there is nothing wrong with the Muppets, the Muppets rock. Anyone who says otherwise can stuff it. Neatly.

    What if "Good Vibrations" by Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch were "your song" as in "they're playing our song," simply because it was ALWAYS FUCKING ON MTV during the early weeks of the relationship? I can tell you what. It would be bad.
