What is the first song or piece of music you can remember hearing on the radio (or)?

What is the first song or piece of music you can remember hearing on the radio (or)?
I was born in 1953 and this song that came out in 1957 is the first one I remember hearing on the radio.  I wonder how much everyone's first song would have in common, like characteristics which are more likely to appeal to toddlers and small children?

The kind of believing engaged in by most Christians we meet is not neutral, truth seeking believing. It isn't acceptance of the best supported conclusion, not submission to the facts. "True believers" believe heroically, they launch their belief at their chosen target with enthusiasm. While thrusting their belief forward they will brook no but-what-if's. Facts which do not conform are not recognized. 'True' belief is drunk with celebrating certainty, no further quest is required .. only the constant parrying with nay sayers.

Wow, that's a tough one. If memory serves, I believe it was Karn Evil 9, from ELP.

Born in 66 here.

The first music I remember hearing was at five -- it wasn't on the radio, per se, but on the 8-track with Mom taking us with her grocery shopping. The album? Tapestry, from Carole King. And Mom played it a lot, so that it got burned into my brain. A beautiful work; I've gone out and bought it a couple of times as an adult, because it's one of those albums which bears repeated listenings. A sample:

First song I remember hearing on the radio? "Do it Again", from Steely Dan -- a little later, I had just started first grade and my sister and I were walking to Sprouse-Reitz to spend our allowances -- a whole quarter! -- with her little blue transistor radio cranked. Not being a musician at the time, I had no appreciation for Denny Dias's fantastic solo on electric "sitar" -- but the song sure grabbed my ear, and years later, when I got into the Dan from another route, I was gladly surprised to learn that this was in their songbook:

That same day, walking home, "Rock On" came on ... but good lord, I can't stand that song, and so won't post it here.

The first album I ever bought, A New World Record I got because I'd heard this on the radio, about ten years old. The opening chords are what made me want to play guitar -- the sound just killed me, it resonated in my little brain so hard.

Thanks for the trip down Memory Lane, Pops. Good stuff -- looking forward to the other replies. Smile

The first song I ever heard was by DJ Bobo on TV, altough I don't remember which song it was. But that day I started listening to DJ Bobo and did so for nearly 10 years. Then I discovered hip-hop and a little later - the metal music.

I can't be sure if it was the first one but certainly the first one that stuck. Without understanding the lyrics, of course. The tune just appealed to me as a toddler or small child. How old was I? Fourish?

That was the earliest music memory of mine. Played on the radio in my dad's car while he was driving me to preschool one day. I was like 3 years old.

The first song that I remember was 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.
