TWQ: First Song

Today, TWQ (the Weekend Question) aks you to delve into the earlist memories you have regarding songs.

What is the first song or songs you remember? List as many as you wish.

My answers are:

Morningtown Ride by The Seekers: This always invokes fond memories. I once heard the lead singer Judith Durham sing it live in a solo concert many years later.

Downtown by Petula Clark: One I never tire of hearing now.

Now it's over to you...

Gee, I was thinking more like "Old MacDonald" and "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" but I also remember "Henry the VIIIth" by Herman's Hermits!

Darktown Strutters Ball (my mother used to sing it to me, as her father sang it to her).

Oh I'd forgotten Judith Durham and the Seekers. When we were in Australia, when I was a toddler, Mum and Dad used to play their songs.

I can still hear her voice now..........


thank you for reminding me.

"Downtown" was one of my earliest memories too as well as "Up and Away" by the 5th Dimension, which I can't stand to this day.

I grew up on classical music and have fond memories of dancing to Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" and Stravinsky's "Firebird Suite".

I remember A Whiter Shade of Pale, and Let's Go To San Francisco.

Greenfields by The Brothers Four...actually from my brothers record player (back when they still existed).

It's easy to pinpoint people's ages from those songs!
