What was the first song that you loved?


posted 9-Jan-2008 7:24pm  
Don't remember all of the songs, but some were Hawaiian language 78 RPMs back when I was about 8 years old. My mom liked the mellow hula songs; I liked the more primitive chants (one called "Ula No Weo chant" but also liked other Hawaiian language tunes that were not chants, such as one called "Ka Anoi Hula" and another called "Holoholo kaa" (automobile ride comic hula). I've never been to Hawaii but when I was a kid I thought I'd like it there. My mom had met someone who had lived there and had all these records so when I heard some of it I got interested in it too.

"My Diane" I think it was called, back in the early 60's when I was a kid.

I honestly can't remember. The first song I remember being my 'favourite' (and still is!) was 'Friends' by Michael W Smith & Amy Grant.

How the hell would I remember that? It was probably something country.

I'm not sure if it was the first song I loved, but the first one I remember loving was Trooper's 'Raise a Little Hell'. I knew all the words to it by the time I was 5, and sang along whenever I heard it.

It's really hard to say... it may be a song by Barry Manilow... or, "Me and You and a Dog Named Boo" (I remember my family getting excited over it while driving down to Florida in the station wagon, in the mid to early 70s - but, even then it was a joke too). Also, "Seasons in the Sun" ("We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun..."), I pretty sure I was into that as a kid. I was such a jerk when I was a kid. Later, I recall being into "Blinded by the Light" which is actually kind of cool and less creamy. I'm pretty sure I was into "American Pie" too, but everyone was.

It was probablly either "Shine on you Crazy Diamond" or "Wish you were here"
I remember listening to Pink Floyd's "Collection of Great Dance Songs" over and over again when I was in high school working on big project.

Puff the Magic Dragon, and Two Little Boys...

I had a tape with them on, and they both used to make me cry. I don't think I've heard either of them in a good 15 years.
