Listography Five First Albums

The first singles I bought were actually quite cool (Nick Kershaw, Diana Ross, Aztec Camera). But no,  Kate Takes 5 is clever, she wants albums for this week's listography.

One...deep breath
Elton John - strictly speaking this was from Mum and Dad's collection, but aged five I went to great lengths to make my own taped version. Saturday Night and Crocodile Rock were my faves.

Two...okay this one's pretty cool
Duran Duran - aged six I had a huge argument with my best friend Claire because I was singing the vocals and the backing vocals to Wild Boys, whereas she was just singing the vocals. I was very sad when Simon Le Bon got married.
Three...still love this one to this day
Wham - although I always felt guilty about listening to Wham after reading a slightly steamy article about Andrew and George in the dentist's waiting room aged about seven. Can't remember what it was about
but it probably wasn't very appropriate for my age.

Pet Shop Boys - Great for singing along, out of tune, aged nine, on long car journeys with my walkman headphones in.

Five...oh no really don't want to admit to this
Kylie by Kylie Minogue, and I even autographed it 'To Penny love Kylie'. Massive cringe.

Dear Reader
Forgive me my musical sins.
I was young and knew no better.

I can't believe what awesome memories you all have! The only album I recall owning as a kid, pre teenager days, was an Elvis tape. I was so in love with him. I saw a picture of him at a thrift store when I was real young. I thought I was going to pass out. I just knew he was the man I should marry. ( I might have been five or six!) I ran over to my mom and gushed that THIS was the man I was going to marry. As nonchalant as you can get when crushing your daughter's heart into a fine powder she said "Honey, he's dead". Ugh.

Thank you for letting me know. I can't believe there's a link on BMB
to this post. Here was I thinking I had got away with it. The shame!

Firstly, congratulations on BMB Blogger of the Week!!

Secondly, I can't believe you autographed your own Kylie album. You've partly redeemed yourself by admitting to it in such a public forum, but still, you autographed your own Kylie album. Oh the shame!!

Snap on the Pet Shop Boys! Wasn't cool enough to own Duran Duran until I was much older (and then it wasn't cool any more)

Nah it's stuffed under my bed at my parents house. There's no way I am letting that one get away!

I love Elton John! Rocket Man, Saturday Night, Crocodile Rock? Classics! I still listen to a bit of Elton when I'm cleaning :)

My first album was The Beatles, Sgt. Pepper's. I'm not sure what my top 5 would be . . . I'm sure Elvis was in there though. x

Well, I owned at least two of those... not telling you which ones though! The signing the Kylie album bit made me laugh, bet you weren't the only one to do that at some point! Emma (Ps. thanks for your comment on my blog :) )
