All Foo...
This is your chance to tell us about your FIRST musical memory. Doesn't matter what it is, just let us know.

This is a test, failure to post here means you fail. :lol:

Mine was between 4 and 6 years of age listening to our new record player listening to "Grandma's Lye Soap" and such. I also remember listening to Johnny Horton. Yeah..... :)

4 years old. Dad had Hank Williams on the turntable followed by Roy Clark. I'm not one for country music but there's a place in my heart for old country.

Mine was dancing to "Cool Jerk" in 1995. I called it "ooga" (I was 5).

Mine was trying to sing Wham's "Wake me up before you go go" when I was barely old enough to talk. That and my dad has a picture of me in diapers with his stereo headphones system sitting right in front of Van Halen's "1984" album, which is the same year I was born.

My earliest is as a boy, around 5 or 6, running errands with my father on Saturday mornings. He had a Ford Falcon with an AM radio and a reverberator. We would listen to doo wop music as we did the weekend errands. I still remember singing Ragg Mopp. R a g g M o p p ragmop.

Too early to tell but 4/6 years could be a mile marker.

Does the music you mentioned have a place in your life today, mine sure does, I love folk music and early country.

Definitely. My parents used to tape hours and hours of MTV back when it was actually MTV. I remember watching countless old videos of Aerosmith, Van Halen, Dire Straits, Genesis, ZZ Top, Def Leppard, Tom Petty, etc, etc, ect.

While some of those may not be my favorite bands nowadays, I would definitely say it laid the foundation for my tastes in music as I got older.

My first concert was the Wallflowers and The Counting Crows with my day when I was like 10 or 11 years old. The first CD I ever bought was Tom Petty's "Full Moon Fever", his first solo album.

I was about 6 -- my mom was driving my 2 brothers and I somewhere at night, and Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" was playing on the radio -- KFJZ 1270 AM.

I'm still a big Led Zeppelin fan...

The Ode to Joy is the first piece of music I can remember hearing. I was very young.
"Hush Little Baby" is the first song I remember being sung to me.

I have some ridiculously early memories. I can remember having my diapers changed, learning to walk pulling up on the side of the couch, the mobile over my crib (from the point of view of looking up), etc. They are all just flashes, but still.

3-4 years old. Listening to Steve Miller Band - Dance, dance, dance in my Dad's '63 Chevy flatbed.

I would give anything to be there on that day again...

I honestly can't remember mine, but then I started playing violin at 5, my life has been filled with music. :love:

My very very first musical memory was sitting on my grandma's lap while she was playing the piano. I was around 4yrs, I think. My most memorable was getting on a stage on my aunt's (not really related, but she was my mum's friend) karaoke bar and singing "hitori bocchi no you ni" and the theme song from anpanman at around 6yrs.

John Denver on a road trip up Highway 395 in CA on my way to the Sierras.

Wordbiker 09-01-08 11:23 PM

I remember being forced against my will to sing Good Morning Starshine.

I thought (and still do) think it was a stupid song and resented my hippie teachers. Yeah, I can sing and they tried their best to exploit me.

Yeah, my family/friends/teachers did this too. Y'know, the whole "oh Neko, be a good girl and sing for [insert random person here]...they might give you [insert treat here] if you do!"

FlatMaster 09-02-08 12:02 AM

we had a set of Disney tapes. My sister and I were listening to the tiger song from whiney the poo. He's the guy that bounces everywhere. We basically jumped around and made a rucus till we got in trouble. Not great music, but my first memory.

Piano lessons age 4 or so...wish I kept it up. :(

RubenX 09-02-08 01:33 AM

Gee, I remember the tune, not the lyrics... I can't google it up. But its an old one, disco genre.

KiddSisko 09-02-08 02:15 AM

About 3, one lazy winter afternoon with the radio playing in the background, the song - King Of The Road, by Roger Miller. Of all songs, I know! I also distinctly remember hearing Bobby Darin's Mack The Knife and Big Bad John by Jimmie Dean that same day. From that day forward, whenever I heard those songs I'd flash back to that afternoon, listening to the radio while looking at a painting of an old fashioned yarn spinning wheel in the fading winter sunlight.
