    Question First song you remember hearing and where?

    The very first song i remember hearing was - My boy lollipop by Millie Small. (1964) I must have been about 3 or 4.

    I fell in love with little Millie and this song and i would imagine she was singing about me.
    Its a great song really joyous and happy with a great reggae beat.
    It wasn't until a couple of years ago that i actually got to see what Millie looked like when i looked her up on you tube.
    Shes as cute as a button, even as a kid i had good taste in women, lol -
    YouTube - Millie Small - My Boy Lollipop (1964) HQ
    Apparently it was the very first international ska hit, good taste in music too!

    I think the first place i heard it was at a cafe down the road from our flat.
    I used to escape quite regularly by climbing on a chair undoing the latch and the toddling off down the road, most of the time i would end up at the cafe listening to the juke box, it was great fun.
    My poor mum would be frantically searching the neighborhood for me.

    Well id be a very clever and knowledgeable lad if i knew that at 3 years old and since i wasn't ive cheated and looked it up on google.
    Something tells me your going to disappointed with the answer (i know i was) i reckon you think it was a certain spiky haired Scotsman with a croaky voice, yes?
    Well im afraid it wasn't him,

    Apparently it was a guy called Pete Hogman.... I'm none the wiser ether!

    The 3 that stick in my mind are They long to be close to you - Carpenters, Without you - Nilsson and Part of the union - The Strawbs.

    The first two i probably heard at my Grans because my Grandad loved both tunes and i'd have been about 4 years old. The Strawbs one i remember vividly. It used to be played on local radio in the morning when i was getting ready for school.

    'Stand by your man' - Tammy Wynette which was released in the uk (probably Ireland too) in 1975. I was in my friend's garden and it was playing on her mam's radio. Also 'Fernando' by Abba, I was in Blackrock - a little beach resort near my home walking along the shop fronts. I can remember the sun shining on the colourful buckets and spades(and those things on sticks that blow around like little windmills) sitting in boxes outside one of the shops and Fernando playing from somewhere.
    The first song I can remember really liking was 'The Boy From New York City' by The Darts, great memories from the summer that was out.

    It's hard knowing where to start, but I certainly remember Soft Cell's Tainted Love being played a lot, same with Human League's Don't You Want Me.

    The first song I remember hearing was "Love Is Something, If You Give It Away" our teacher at primary school (Mrs Jenkins) used to sing it to us with her guitar. Aaaaaaw, I loved that! I'm gonna Google it and see if it was an actual song or just one she made up.....

    Found it!! http://childbiblesongs.com/song-29-l...-it-away.shtml How sweet!
