What is the first song that caused you to fall in love with music?

Recommended Posts

I was 2 years old in 1965 and I'm uncertain what year the phenomenon began for me, but I listened to this song 1000s of times over and over and over and over again.   Drove everyone nuts in my house.

 

Hang on Sloopy

My oldest boy wore me the hell out on “you ain’t nothin but a hound dog” because of the Disney movie LILO and Stitch. I woke up to him playing it on repeat for probably a year straight.

It may have been “The Eency Weency Spider” but my first as a rational thinking teenager was “Momma Told Me Not To Come” –  by Three Dog Night.  What fun thoughts - thanks!

“50 ways to leave your Lover” made me fall in love with drums. The mood of it is magical.

      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.

      A few years ago I had been in seriously deep dark depression.  I was essentially a walking dead.   The various chemistry the several doctors gave me did nothing. Then one day this song came on the radio…I had not heard it since my hippy days many years ago when we would sing it around camp fires, festivals and occasional church meeting.   Hearing this song broke me out of my depression illness.  I came alive again. Peace and Love, Doc

      Arlo was in Atlanta about a week ago. It was a very good show with his daughter, Sarah, and son Abe in the band. I've been fortunate to hear Arlo many times over the years and frequently play his CDs in the car.  The last couple years his shows often start with "The Motorcycle Song" as a video cartoon played on a big screen before the band comes out for the last chorus.

      TR, very cool you posted. I'm a big Arlo fan. Saw him about 91 or 92 play at Queen's College in Charlotte. It was a school theater holding about 500 or so people. He came out in tattered blue jeans, holey t-shirt, and barefooted. Just came to the front of the stage and sat down on the edge with his feet dangling. I don't even remember him using a microphone. He played and told stories for a couple of hours, including the motorcycle song. What a great memory that is for me. Thanks for taking me b
