    Your favorite songs as a kid.

    What were your favorite songs as a kid? I'm talking 10 or earlier here.

    I believe in you: Don Williams
    Nobody: Sylvia
    Mickey: Tony Basil
    Rapture: Blondie
    Centerfold: The J. Geils Band

    My mom tells me I used to get down to "Shake your booty" in my car seat.

    Mickey too! Also Blondie, Tide Is High was my favourite of theirs.

    But for about 6 months I wanted nothing in life other than to be Adam Ant, when the Ants first appeared on TOTP. Kings of the Wild Frontier was my first LP, loved the drumming and shouting, I guess I was 9

    "DON'T TRRREAD ON AN ANT! HE'S DONE NOTHIN' TO YOU!"



    Haha, now all I can think is how much it needs a Gay Pirates mashup.

    I remember when my aunt got married, my grandma picked out a tape of hits. From that tape I loved the following.

    Mexican Radio: Wall of Voodoo
    Rock of Ages: Def Leppard

    I forgot MEN AT WORK! I loved "Who Can It Be Now". The first LPs I remember wanting was Men at Work's Business as Usual and a Neil Diamond album. I never owned either. I bought my favorite songs on 45's. It was easier on my budget. My first album was a cassette of Cyndi Lauper's She's so Unusual. I think by the time I owned that album I was over 10 or over and it was already a few years old.

    My first records I bought were Blondie's Tide is High Single and Willie Nelson's Always on My Mind.
    My first tapes were Wham!, Like a Virgin, and She's So Unusual.
    Cyndi's True Color's was my first CD.
    I was a major freestyle fan in the late 80's, and Expose and Taylor Dayne were the sex.
    i absolutely wore OUT my Debbie Gibson "Electric Youth", Tiffany "Hold an Old Friends Hand" and Kylie Minogue tapes.
    My first boy crush was on Richard Marx. 'woah-woah, we wont give up until we're satisfied.'

    So yeah. Humble gay beginnings. And I can still listen to any of those albums shamelessly

    I was born in 1978, so 10 and younger would be 1988 and before for me. I actually really started getting into music around '89/'90, but wasn't so big into music before that. I did, however, love these at the time:

    Cyndi Lauper--"Girls Just Wanna Have Fun," "She Bop," "Change of Heart," "True Colors, "(Goonies R) Good Enough." Everything she put out, really. She was the first singer I ever really loved. I was a big fan. I'm still a fan!
    Madonna--"Material Girl." When I saw this video I thought she was the most beautiful woman that ever existed. I think I liked a lot of her songs as a kid, but I wasn't so aware of who sang what on the radio ... it wasn't until I got a little older that I realized how much of her music I liked.
    New Order--"Bizarre Love Triangle"
    Icehouse--"Electric Blue"
    Roxette--"Dangerous"

    I also really liked Prince, but more in terms of his persona than latching on to any specific songs. I became a bigger fan as I got older and explored his (amazing) 80's albums individually.

    I remember my parents buying me Boy George's Colour By Numbers as a gift once, and I was so not into him. I just think they bought my sister a record for Christmas or something and didn't know what to get me. lol.

    Time after Time - Cyndi Lauper
    Boys of Summer - Don Henley

    I almost put Rock Me Amadeus, but its world wide release was listed as 1986. I would have been 11!
