What is your first real song that you remember?

"Holiday", "Blue Island" and "Haunted House" by The Bee Gees. My dad used to play those in the car all the time on the way to school.

Two that come to mind from before I even started kindergarten in '63. The Monster Mash (1962), my older sister had the 45, and From A Jack To A King . Don't know who did the latter(it wasn't the Elvis version) but my mom use to play it over and over while cleaning house.

"Strawberry Fields Forever". I was four when it came out. It sounded like a kid's song. It still does, and I mean that in the best possible way.

The Beatles for me too, I Want to Hold Your Hand and Eight Days a Week. My older brothers would play those 45's over and over. We would all sing along. I think I was around 5.

I remember my older sisters having a lot of 45's back in the 70's, so there were a couple that sprung up on me, Linda Ronsdtat "It's So Easy" and Rod Stewart's "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy".

I remember "Billy Don't Be a Hero." I must have been around 4 or 5 as it came out in 1974. I thought the song sucked, but my older brother liked it.

Space Oddity by David Bowie, on my back porch, my dad was listening to it and told me all about how Tom was floating away and had no hope of survival. I heard alot that weekend, because it was one of those great song countdowns on the rock station in New York/New Jersey that played Howard Stern, and my dad kept telling me stories of each song as they same to pass.

"Real song?" Like something besides Disney or Sesame Street stuff?

"Stir It Up," by Johnny Nash. I loved this song when I was a kid, and I still love it today.
