On New Year’s Eve I was looking through a box of my old tapes an CDs. Someone at our house said “My first tape was Wilson Phillips.” And the conversation spiraled on from there.
I bought my first cassette tape in sixth grade: LL Cool J’s Mama Said Knock You Out. Such were the times. I was a hardcore young man with ferocious anger issues and suave hip hop moves. Or maybe that was someone else. I was a nerd wearing a coat that was always stuffed with fantasy novels. But I did like that tape.
My first CD was MC Hammer’s Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ’em.
Oh yeah. I actually still remember all the words. I know this because I just listened to them both again and yep, it’s all still in there.
Oh, I also bought that C&C Music Factory CD around that time. It…hasn’t aged that well.
Do you remember what your first album was? Do you want to?
