Never owned a single in my life! First album (bought for me) was Britney Spears' debut. You'll understand when I say that I was about 12 at the time, and my interest may not have been entirely musical. Even now the opening chords of 'Hit me Baby one more time' make me feel a bit 'funny.'

Never had a huge interest in music really, so it was another four years or so before I felt the urge to buy some music for myself, walked into my local Woolworths and came out with the two coolest albums I could find on the shelves - Prodigy: Fat of the Land and Lenny Kravitz: Greatest Hits.

He had comeback in the mid 90's I know. I recall finding a night club inside the arcade of shopping mall on the Gold Coast that was more of a pub called The Rose & Crown singing one of his old hits. I was just passing through, but felt overwhelmed by this communal spirit shared by all occupants.

I know it may read like he was actually in there singing, but it was on what ever medium disc-jockeys prefer. I think did all use singles as well. it would have been easier then to find their most optimum song.

In my collection as well, but on cd....the songs Fire-Starter & Breath......there' another song there might offend the fairer sex (I mean women, if you agree with me there!) and according to the wiki, they just say it's really about doing anything intensely.

"Smack my Bitch up" is a euphemism for injecting hard drugs, which I believe is what they really meant! See also: "E's are good. He's Ebenezer Good".

Fat of the Land is the first Prodigy album I bought. Good album, still listen to it occasionally. The Shaman ("E's are good.) were proper dogshit! A mate of mine was a big fan when we were young and he played the album daily. Proper dogshit!

Cheers

I went into Woolworths

Woollies was great. i  bought a few rare 12 " from there. They had NO CLUE!
My niece has suddenly become a vinyl obsessive (aged 14) and stolen  alot of my/ and my parents lps.
I went in to sainsburies the other day and it had a load of 'classic' vinyl on ale (stones, the specials, nirvana, amy winehouse etc.

Good music never compromises. Throw the goat and rock the fuck out!
You may quote me on that.

First single I bought was This is not a Love Song by Public Image Ltd.

Not sure what the first album was.  I remember being given a Siouxsie album in the mid 80s but first one I bought was probably a Cure album on cassette.

Uh... which format?

First vinyl album was likely Children's TV Themes by Cy Payne & His Orchestra.
First cassette album was The Hits Album 7 (a double cassette no less).
First CD album was Rock Anthems (and yes, seeing the year of release clearly stated isn't helping me any).

As for the other... I honestly have no idea which single I bought first. Complete blank - it really is not some bullshit reason to avoid stating something embarrassing as I have no shame. I'll admit to owning some of the worst songs ever recorded (in multiple formats, and filed alphabetically).

I have a copy of the Over There CD, with the video on it, and there's an immense number of novelty songs in my collection. I'm beyond blackmail.  :P

Probably the Ninja Turtles movie soundtrack on cassette, which I got way before I ever got to see the movie, and as I had recently seen the film Grease and was young enough at the time to not really understand the distinction between musicals and regular movies I assumed that all the songs on the tape were musical numbers performed by characters in the movie.

Pretty soon after that it was Cool as Ice by Vanilla Ice, and I also remember buying a copy of 3 Years, 5 Months and 2 Days in the Life Of... by Arrested Development from a friend. I had a slightly odd and embarrassing pre-teen phase of listening to middle aged solo male artists for a while after that; Bryan Adams, Peter Gabriel and for some bizarre reason I remember owning a copy of the Mick Jagger solo album Wandering Spirit - I think because at the time one of his songs was getting a lot of airplay on MTV. Most embarrassing of all is probably having a copy of the East 17 album Steam  :-\

But that was all when I was a very young kid and didn't really have a developed taste as such. I consider my first actual single and album purchases that I bought with my own money - on CD no less - as Hey Dude and K by Kula Shaker, shortly followed by 1977 by Ash. The latter I still kind of love to this day. The former not so much (though I still have a nostalgic fondness for it).

My first single was a red vinyl Number of the Beast by Iron Maiden. No shame in starting on Maiden.

Around the World in a Day by Prince was my first vinyl album.  Still holds up as utter genius: but when I first listened, it was ahead of my time.

First cassette album was Meat Loaf's Bad Attitude, which even at the time was not the leader of my collection pack. It contains the rather blunt but memorable rock ballad "Surf's Up", with the subtle, silver-tongued lyric "Surf's up and so am I" (with the female backing singers wailing "I need it so bad" in the background like a pack of sex-starved nymphos). It gets by mostly on the fact he's got a mighty singing voice.

My first album (borrowed, not bought) was an Iron Maiden album too. But soon after I became what was then known as a Cure-head and wasn't allowed to like metal any more. Which is a shame, because Maiden are brilliant.  I bet he pilots and fences in a metal way too.
