Early songs

Any there any particular songs, or even an individual song, that you associate with your early childhood? The first two songs I can recall hearing are Enya's "Orinoco Flow" ("sail away, sail away, sail away!" and The Buggles' "Video Killed the Radio Star".

Around the time I was born, Dad bought a CD player and two of Enya's CDs; he later bought a Buggles album which contained their aforementioned song. Those albums were played frequently enough for me to recognise both songs, single them out and enjoy them from an early age. Whenever I listen to them now, I am reminded of when I was around 3-4 years of age and had my first taste of music; however, most of the returning memories are of loving those songs when I was that age: I recall little else. Still, it is a wonderful feeling to listen to songs that I associate with being a young child, and it does bring back some of the few memories I have of my pre-United States life.

Can you remember the earliest song(s) you ever heard, or have any songs that remind you of being just a few years old or younger?


  1. My grandma housed foreign exchange students from 1991-1997, so I remember a lot of rock music. I still love the grunge and alternative and metal music.

    1. Wow...your grandma was truly an amazing woman.

      I like rock music. :)
