    Ironically enough, it was "45" by The Gaslight Anthem.

    The Irish Rovers “Wasn’t That A Party”. Pretty crazy song for a 7 year-old to dig.

    It was either Playground in My Mind by Clint Holmes or Candy Man by Sammy Davis Jr. Either way, I was 8 years old, and it was my mom who paid. (She paid, alright!)

    I always wondered whatever happened to Michael & weather he was still with Cindy.

    In 1971 I bought Paul McCartney's "Uncle Albert" single -- for the B side, "Too Many People." I hated "Uncle Albert" and most of the "Ram" album but loved -- and still love -- "Too Many People."

    I was born in ‘76 but the first 45 I remember spinning was either The Beach Boys “Dance, Dance, Dance” or the Beatles “Penny Lane”.

    Both from my mom’s collection. I think they were both Capital records with the orange and yellow swirl.

    Started out right, I think.

    Chick A Boom - Daddy Dew Drop?

    I forget which now, after all these years.
    It may well have been I Feel Fine or Come Together, or maybe even the Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose - Treat Her Like A Lady?

    I don't know exactly which one, but I'm sure it's one of these:
    Waterloo - Abba
    Kung Fu Fighting - Carl Douglas
    I Shot The Sheriff - Eric Clapton

    They're all pretty beat up 45s with no sleeves anymore.
    I think I probably got them from Memco for maybe 78 cents?

    Awwww, I really like I'm Alive. All of the Xanadu tracks are great to me, especially All Over The World. :):)

    I bought several at once. Christmas 1972, I was 8. My dad gave me $5 and I told him I wanted to spend it on records. He took me to K-Mart (I think 45s were about 55 cents). Looking at the Billboard chart from December 30, 1972 I think the ones I bought were: "Me And Mrs. Jones" - Billy Paul, "Clair" - Gilbert O'Sullivan, "It Never Rains In Southern California" - Albert Hammond, "Your Mama Don't Dance" - Loggins & Messina, "Superstition" - Stevie Wonder, "I Can See Clearly Now" - Johnny Nash, "Summer Breeze" - Seals & Crofts, and "Rocky Mountain High" - John Denver.

    Me And You And A Dog Named Boo, or was it Joy To The World by Three Dog Night? One of those two.

    Never had this on 45 but, damn, I sure remember when it was out and as big a hit as could be.
    Must have heard it 100 times a day. You couldn't escape it.

    In fourth grade (1970) after lunch the teacher would play 45's that we brought in to class, and I remember bringing that one in, a few others too.

    Not my first ever, but “Refugee” was the first 45 I bought as a teenager.

    I think my first was “Dark Lady” by Cher.
