And the first shopping-spree with my Christmas bonus. The fastest

purchase ever. I saw them, I took them, I took out my wallet and I paid

them. The lady asked me "Do you want to check the price?". I said "No". They were waay to expensive, but I didn't mind at all.

The soundtrack to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat on vinyl, in 1983. I think Paul Jones from Manfred Mann sang the lead role. I was six.

The second I bought was Michael Jackson's Thriller, maybe the following year. I still have both.


 

I'm a bit ashamed that I don't have Thriller. I really need to correct this.

I think my first cassette was Ace of Base, as well, actually.

First CD was a Backstreet Boys one or the Hanson Christmas one.

First one I bought myself was Craig David.

 

Embarrassing.  haha.

Do what you want to do, and go where you're going to…

I had to google a-hard-days-night-ringo-8. An Andrew Lloyd Webber show?? Wow… just to think the stuff I had to listen when I was 6…   thank God I had the Beatles to balance that..

 

And Jenn, trust me, nothing is more embarrassing than Menudo. I mean, it's not that embarrassing, some of their songs are really good for teens, the embarrassing was that I spent hours learning to dance the songs with the choreography.

The first cd that I bought was The Beach Boys 20 Good Vibrations when I was probably 10. I still have it and enjoy it quite a bit. I had an Ace of Base cassette as well and, unfortunately, the Hanson Christmas cd. I still get songs from that stuck in my head even though I probably haven't listened to it in a decade, so I must have listened to it quite a bit when I first got it. I was hoping that the Beatles would wipe my memory of all the bad songs I listened to before them, but I guess a few have slipped through the cracks.

Huh. a-hard-days-night-ringo-7 Had to look them up. It's not ringing any bells.


 

They were a very popular band in the early 90s. Their love ballads were very good without being too corny. They were so popular in Mexico that they recorded some of their songs in Spanish doing a good job. One of their songs was in Julia Robert's Pretty Woman's soundtrack.

 

Edit : Actually I remember how they became famous in US. An American exchange student got one of their albums in Sweden, brought it to US and gave it to a DJ in a large city. He started playing "The Look" and became very popular, that the record company had to release that album in US. (Man, I remember hearing that story in a radio show in El Servicio Latinoamericano de la BBC)

This is my favorite.

So 90's pop was alright until the Spice Girls came along...and then everything went downhill from there.

 


 

I'm happy to say I never was into them. That one song was catchy... meh. They had a movie too, didn't they?


Oh yeah, they were the 90's British invasion. I watched the movie because, well, I was a teenage boy. But then the Backstreet
Boys and Nsync came along and the Spice Girls were out. The 90s were a weird time for music, it doesn't seem like anyone lasted longer than a year or two.
 

Nirvana. God I hate that band. Made really crappy cover of Something >:(
