I was at a training meeting at work a few days ago and, as we were introducing ourselves, we were asked to state the first music single we'd ever purchased (nothing to do with the training; it was an ice-breaker). I started buying singles around 1980 so my answer was the positively embarrassing Xanadu by Olivia Newton-John.
Truth be told I'm not sure if this really was my first purchased single but it was certainly one of the first, and the only one I could think of at the spur of the moment. I hasten to add that my taste in music has improved since then.
So, good people, what was the first single you purchased? Is it as embarrassing as mine, or were you a preteen with better taste?
