    It can be a single, album, a later compilation focusing on the year . . . whatever.

    Doesn't have to be a list, though of course you can post a list if you want. You can also just post one title at a time as you think of it/run across it (which is what I do in these threads).

    I was nine years old at the time but totally into music from the cradle.
    First name that comes to mind is Gene Pitney.

    I vividly recall hearing this on the radio when I was five; it's the first rock record that I recall.

    Until I think of something else, The Young Ones by Cliff Richard is my favourite song of the year:

    The year Bob Dylan wrote "hard rain's gonna fall' and 'blowin in the wind' , two songs that will live for a long time. you could sorta loosely say that '62 was kind of the 'birth year' of both dylan and the beatles, in a way? then again, as another post above mentions, some great frank sinatra albums were done that year , ray charles' modern sounds in country, .... and not mentioned yet, i think (tho i could be wrong?) that great duke ellington-charles mingus-max roach trio album.... (was it max roach or art blakey? was it '62? hmm, i forget now)

    1962, the year that I turned 11 years old and the year that I started buying records. I started with 45s and the first one that I ever bought was "She Cried" by Jay and the Americans.
