And I was listening to 311 today, and it maked me think of my first CD purchases.
My first CD (not album - I owned some cassettes, naturally, I'm not that young) was Ace of Base "The Sign".
You may boo me now.
I still own it, and listen to it on driving trips.
I kind of made up for it as my next two were Sgt. Pepper and the Magical Mystery Tour, bought at the same time. After that, it was 311, Garbage, and Soundgarden (all self-titled).
How about you, my three readers? What were the first music purchases you made? I'm also curious about, specifically, the first thing you bought when you switched over to the 'new technology', whatever that was in your youth. (i.e., I switched to CDs in middle school with Ace of Base, my brother went over to mp3s in high school, my mom and dad went from records to cassettes in college.)
Ooh, and what was the first mp3 you remember searching for? I seem to think mine might have been Genesis - I Can't Dance, since I could only find the live version on albums at the time.
