What was the one?...

What was the very first song you downloaded? the one that as soon as you could, you typed into the search box? To start you off (and show there's nothing to be ashamed of) here's mine:

Pink Floyd/The Orb: Shine on you crazy diamond (Orb little fluffy cloud mix)

All I Wanna Do, by Sheryl Crow. Not out of choice though, but because there were very few MP3s around.. it was about 1996 and I'd heard about the magical technology of MP3.. but the only place to get them was on a weird IRC channel :-) - Peter Cooper

The first album I have a specific memory of downloading was Slick Rick's "Da Art of Storytellin'" ... I remember being amazed that I had a pre-master version for months before it came out, and that the mixes were notably different (worse) on the retail.

<3 internet.

i came fairly to the whole MP3 thing, mostly because my PC until recently still had valves and took up a whole side of the house, so the first track i downloaded, about 4 years ago, was either an odd Coil/ Marc Almond track called The Dark Age of Love or Come to Daddy by the Aphex Twin.

If I remember rightly,it was a bootleg/mash-up/whatever the young 'uns call them these days of Radiohead and Marvin Gaye called 'Sexual High' from (I think) Go Home Productions.Of course I was still on dial-up then,and it took about three weeks to download,but I still think it's an improvement on both songs used ('Sexual Healing' and 'High And Dry').

Continuing the Marvin Gaye theme (sort of) mine was Heard It Through The Grapevine by The Slits cos I'd lost my vinyl copy and wanted to be taken back to the halcyon days of the only alternative disco in town.

that's a bit ironic, because that was the first song i posted on my previous (aborted) mp3blog. enjoying this one?
