Re: The first single you purchased

I don't remember my first single.

I do remember my first album (yes, album).

It was Candy-O by The Cars.

Still holds up today as a great one.

Hammer To Fall by Queen and Do They Know It's Christmas? by Band Aid. Guess I should stand in the corner or something.

"I think I love you" David Cassidy & the Partridge Family. 1972, I was 12 years old.

Thye first album was Skyhooks' "Living in the 70s". I had others given to me ( eg "Jackson 5", Pink Flloyd Dark side of the Moon, Jon English "Wine Dark Sea"), but that was the first one I bought.

I didn't purchase it, but someone gave me a copy of I want to Have Some Fun by Samantha Fox. What a weird gift to give a kid!

Who was the "someone"? Might have been a message...

Didn't buy all that many singles. Megadeth's Symphony of Destruction might've been the only one, since I was too excited to wait however many more days until the album came out

"ABC" by the Jackson Five on 45, baby. I think "Rockin' Robin" was on the B-side.
