Re: The first single you purchased

I don't know if it was the first I ever bought, but one of the earliest 45-rpm singles I remember having was Bobby Darin's “Sorrow Tomorrow” with a rock arrangement of “You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby” on the flipside. And Elvis Presley's “Return to Sender.” I wasn't a big Elvis fan at the time, though.

I started buying singles around 1980 so my answer was the positively embarrassing Xanadu by Olivia Newton-John.
“Xanadu” is a good song. It's the movie that was an embarrassment.

Minnie Riperton's “Lovin' You”. 45 RPMs baby!
That's not a song; it's a voice exercise. It's practice scales with lyrics.
