Rediscovering the past

2 Dec

Do you remember the first CD you purchased? Do you cringe at the thought? Or find feelings of nostalgia?

My first CD purchase was No Doubt’s Tragic Kingdom:


This was a CD from a time when No Doubt were producing fantastic Ska and Punk tunes. You remember those big singles – Just A Girl or Sunday Morning. Far less commercialised from what they became. I know these songs inside out. I know all the lyrics. The other day I decided to listen to the whole album again – still love it. It’s so much fun. I love the horn section. The tunes are big and bold and bright.

So what did you listen to back when you first started buying CD albums?

    My first cd was a Hit Machine series but I don’t remember the number, I do however remember the songs. I also remember begging my parents for it & one sunny wed arvo my dad picked me up from drama practice and he handed me a small brown paper bag which contained my long awaited cd. Strange the details we do recall. I also had that No Doubt cd!
