Well, I liked lots of records before my first "musical love," but, I'm thinking whose records did you buy??

I finally have my own copy of the ELTON JOHN record I've wanted for about 35 years.  My favorite ELTON JOHN song has always been "Honky Cat" and when growing up, we had ELTON's Greatest Hits, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (two copies) Caribou, Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, and some 45s, but the first record I ever bought, by any artist, was Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player, bought on a whim, instead of the record I went to buy, Honky Chateau and ironically, that was the only time I found it at that local record shop I frequented so many years ago, and later when I bought all my other ELTON LPs, Honky Chateau was never available.  By the time Blue Moves came out, I was over ELTON... I did eventually buy a copy of Honky Chateau by my first love, ELTON JOHN, and it got me to wondering... 

Who was your first musical love?

Well, I remember liking Michael Jackson a bunch as a younger kid, but I wouldn't necessarily say he was my 'favorite', although I still think he was extremely talented. 

I'd say my first 'love' was Weird Al Yankovic, actually.  He's the first musician I bought when I started buying my own albums with like, birthday money.  And he's actually helped introduce me to other musicians through not only his parodies, but his original music as well.  Bands like Cake, They Might be Giants, Frank Zappa, Ray Stevens, Sparks, Devo, etc.

The Beatles.  Definitely the Beatles.  The first time I heard "Hey Jude" I fell head over heels.  This was the first cassette tape I ever bought.



I also liked Elton John, especially "Madman Across the Water."

Never liked any of the music that was popular when I was growing up in the 1980s. I was always 20 years behind my peers.

I never listened to alot of music when I was younger. I listened to Hip-Hop but I think I was trying to fit in with me peers. When I got older I started to listen Nirvana and Guns N Roses that got me into more music but I will be honest those bands really only put out 1 good album each (Nirvana you could say 2 if you count "Bleach") and I hardly listen to them anymore. So I can't say it was a longer lasting love. They were the "gateway" you could say.

Whats really my first love and can listen to them over and over was probably Dead Kennedys Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Black Flag and Descendents. I remember hearing them on a 80s music comp. I bought trying to find better music. When I first heard songs like "Raise Above" and 'Suburban Home". It just blew my mind and eveything in my music collection. It spoke to me. I went out and bought most their albums and started to go to shows and see so much more.

So my first albums were:

Black Flag-Damaged
Descendents-Milo Goes to College
Bikini Kill-p***y Whipped
Dead Kennedys- Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death
Minor Threat, Germs, Anti-Nowhere League, Avengers, Judge-Anthologies of those bands.

First love would have to be The Police followed very closely by Duran Duran.  After all these years I can love and admire their music without going teenage screamy over the guys themselves.

Since then my major loves have been Tori Amos, kd lang and Crowded House.

I guess you could say my first music favorite was "Weird" Al. That would have been elementary school, and he had a goofy humor that allowed me to latch onto the music. But I didn't really start listening to music until I started my teenage years. (However, "Weird" Al was the first concert I ever went to, but that was more of a function of him being one of the only artists to go to Juneau, AK.)

Nirvana and Pearl Jam helped take me out of dance music radio/MTV hell, but I would have to say the first band that I really got obsessed with was Nine Inch Nails. Started with Pretty Hate Machine freshman year and by the time The Downward Spiral came out a year or two later I was hooked.

I had Synchronicity on vinyl in the days when it was coming out in different colours.  The one I snagged was blue.  I still have it packed away somewhere.  Brilliant album, along with everything else they ever did.

I always thought that the Synchronicity II song was creepy and scary.

The first album I ever owned was The Archies, but that was one my parents bought for me. The first albums I bought were by Christian artists like Amy Grant, Dallas Holm, The Imperials, etc. The first secular group I obsessed over would probably have been They Might Be Giants. When I finally decided to start buying CDs (I was convinced for a long time that they would never overtake vinyl), the first two CDs I bought were Genesis and a Hank Williams, Sr., greatest hits disk. My music collection now consists largely of '30s and '40s artists, much as my movie collection consists of many black and white films. Seems I only advance my technology so I can go back further in time...
