I Believed in Father Christmas by Greg Lake, if we are talking about singles. Oddly enough, I've just recently got a CD of Prokofiev's 'Lieutenant Kije' suite, which has the music that Greg Lake used as the backing to that song. :D

The first album I bought was Emerson, Lake and Palmer's 'Tarkus'.

I can't remember the first single I bought, but the first album I got was 'Honkey Chateau' by Elton John. I've still got it.
That doesn't make me a collector, it makes me a squirrel (for our American friends, a squirrel is someone who hordes things and doesn't throw anything away).
Going to my school was an education in itself. Which is not to be confused with actually getting an education (Schultz)

Brothers in Arms by Dire Straits. I wanted to get the single Money for Nothing but my Dad persuaded me that it was most cost effective to get the album. I'm glad I did. It was a great album.

Not sure what happened to it. I can't find it in my collection any more. I suspect that it was loaned out and never returned.

That was my way of thinking - I've only ever bought one single in my life.

And it's amazing how many albums I've bough because I liked a single and then ended up preferring everything else on the album to the single. :D

Oh dear: First single was Haircut 100, Love plus one.

However, this was preceded by buying Pink Floyd - The Wall. :wink:

I used to have the movie of The Wall on video. I loaned it to someone and they (somehow) managed to erase it. I didn't discover this for quite some time. :evil:

My first album was "Visions" by DJ Bobo. Something was seriously wrong with my style of music back then :? .

I don't think he can sing and I don't like his songs (The only thing he actually can do, is a good show). But they are the sort of songs you hear and NEVER EVER get rid of in your whole life!!! (hate him, hate him, hate him, hate him, hate him!!!!!!)

:lol: I remember the first time Culture Club were on Top of the Pops. One of the guys I worked with came in the next day saying how gorgeous the lead singer was. You should have seen his face when someone said "You mean Boy George?" :lol:
