...where your above-average love of music showed, please share.

1-At the age of 3 years, I remember getting caught in my uncle's garage dancing when my teenage cousin yelled to the family to come see. I was so embarrassed when everyone showed up that I ran and cried in the corner.

2-Also at the age of 3, I remember a song I liked coming on the radio but my baby brother, who must've been about 4 to 6 months old was crying in his cradle and wouldn't respond to my patient and loving urges to shush him so I (gently) put my hand over his mouth, making sure it didn't cover his nose, trying to quiet him so I could hear the song. I got caught. Ouch. LOL

I started getting into music about 4 or 5, I guess. My Dad would take me over to his best friend's house to work on classic cars. He had a jukebox and would crank it while we worked. The first car I can remember was a 1937 Ford pick-up truck. This is what was playing.

When I was about 15 I went to The California Jam in Callifornia at the Ontorio Motor Speedway. The Eagles were the top billing. I was standing in the third or fourth row, and after twisting up s fattie they played this song. I dunno exactly why it hit me so hard, but I was totally mesmorized by how damn cool those guys looked: Don Henley standing there so close to the microphone he appeared to be kissing it, with his shades on, long hair blowing across his face; Don Henley wailing on the drums, Don Felder strangling his guitar, wringing-out some incendiary licks.
Anyway, right then and there I decided that music was gonn be a big part of my life. I went on to become a professional drummer.

That's cool you remember the song. I've racked my brain trying to remember the song I was accused of trying to suffocate my brother over. LOL All I remember is it was a woman and it was 1961.

Default jesse lee turner

My first 45 ever, given to me by one of my playmates.
We used to sing it to each other. I loved being the little space girl.
I can still smell the records and record player we used to have.

Default first pop song

I ever heard was blaring from someone's living room as a little 4-5 year old walking in the street in 1966 or 1967 "Hey There Georgie Girl". I eventually found out that a band called The Seekers did that tune

and a decade later all I seemed to hear was The Bee Gees and Barry
