Isn't a turntable (at least 2 of them and a microphone) standard gear for a DJ?
Yeah, but I figured club deejays are the only people who still use them. But then, what do I know?

Not a lot . There are more than a few vinyl "buffs"/ collectors around. You just have to see the number of 2nd hand & vintage record shops around.

They still SELL singles?!?
All an MP3 really is is a single that you download, so yes.

If anyone cares, I bought my first CD player in the summer of 1988 and my first CDs were Journey Escape, and Joe Satriani Surfing with the Alien.
I think my first single was something or other by the Thompson Twins.

Embarrassing as it is, my first CD was "Can't Touch This" by MC Hammer - and I bought my first CD player about 1991.

My first DVD was Days of Thunder - purchased moments after I ordered my first DVD player.

I don't remember my first single, but I had an awful lot of them. If I had to guess, I would say it was possibly The Grand Illusion by Styx.
I still have the Grand Illusion album on vinyl.

Sadly I remember my first record, which was Shaun Cassidy... I was a big Hardy Boys fan back in the day, so that seemed like a cool choice.
Ooh, yes, I loved the Hardy Boys, though I was more of a Parker Stevenson gal. I had dozen of Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books.

My First CD was Howard Jones' Human Lib. It's obviously an early CD because the jewel case is much thicker and sturdier than those of today. In fact it's probably the only case I haven't managed to break, and that CD must be over 20 years old.

Re: The first single you purchased

The musical tastes in this thread are healthy indeed.

Me, I don't think I ever bought a single when I was a child. Heck, I never even bought albums until I was 18.

I think my first single I ever bought was that remixed version of "A Little Less Conversation" by Elvis Presley. But I had escaped my teenhood for a while by that time.

Incidentally the first downloaded single I ever bought was "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley.

Re: The first single you purchased

I remember my first single. ABC by the Jackson Five. Bought new while the song was on the charts. I remember my parents questioning my choice-they wanted me to buy an Alvin and the Chipmunks single instead. LOL.

side note-I still have the 45 and its still playable. Sucker must be 40 years old.

Re: The first single you purchased

My first single was "Hound Dog" by Elvis.. My dad bought it for me not long before he died..

As for the first I purchased with my own money? Wow... Might have been "Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen...
