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


 

Did they? Never hear it!

Although Bowie's "The Man Who Sold The World" is pretty fine, I like it better than the original.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

I love Nirvana – I have pretty much everything they ever released. I've never heard of a cover of Something.

About A Girl was written after Kurt Cobain spent a day listening to (I think) Meet The Beatles!. I always thought quite a bit of Nevermind had some very Beatley melodies, songs like Lithium show a clear influence.

I bought a cassette: 'Rubber Soul', one of the best Beatles' albums.

My first McCartney's CD was 'Paul is live!'

And from there in I never looked back!

Well, even as a child, I was really the only one who ever used the record player, so the first dozen-or-so albums I "owned" by the time I was 7 ("Elvis' Golden Records", "The Best of the Beach Boys Vol II", "American Graffiti OST" probably the most notable) weren't really my own, just ones I'd appropriated as my own. So let's call this one my first:

Mine was Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory a-hard-days-night-ringo-6If you were of a certain age at that time you HAD to own it.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

I don´t remember my first album… but I fondly remember that in 1975 a friend of mine went to Miami and bought me Paul's VENUS AND MARS LP the very same day it was released in USA… I still have it …

I am sad to say that my first album was… Ricky Martin. You know the one with 'She Bangs" on it?

I was 6 and he was my first crush. I have always had a thing for gay men. I even had a life size poster of him facing me when I slept. But yes. I borught the album to school and for a whole week everyone was like SHE BANGS SHE BANGS!

Ricky Martin, Spice Girls, Nirvana – who cares?! No matter how uncool, I'll refuse to apologize for my early favourites! And none of you guys should have to, either.  After all, history might've taken a different course, with the Beatles being remembered as nothing but teen-pop idols. Me, if I were a 12-year old girl into the Jonas Brothers today, I hope I'd have the arrogant self-assurance to defend 'em 15 years from now.

I remember those K-tel albums! I did not own the one you pictured (though I know all the songs, God help me).

Mine had Dr. Hook's Cover of the Rolling Stone on it.

Actually, that's not the exact same LP I had either! Cover art's identical, but only about 50% of the songs are the same. Those K-Tel comps tended to have different track listings for different countries, and mine was the Canadian. The one pictured appears to be missing "The Purple People Eater" and "Wooly Bully" and "Shimmy Shimmy Ko-Ko Bop" and "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini", among other significant milestones in Western civilization.

Had it been an official release at the time, The Sheik of Araby would have fit in well on that LP.

Well, it already had "Ahab The Arab" as well as Sam the Sham & the Pharoahs, so I guess one more slice of Arabia would've been overkill!
