What's Buzzworthy: First Albums

What's Buzzworthy: First Albums

Bookmarking all your old first albums for this week's Buzzworthy challenge seemed like it was a fun way to think back on those first few albums you chose as a hip kid (well, you probably thought you were super hip at the time!). It was often hilarious to peruse the titles you bookmarked, especially since I'd forgotten all about some of these musicians! Others (like The Backstreet Boys) continue to haunt us to this day with their "comebacks." Yeesh. Here are some of the albums that stood out to me, and after the jump you can check out a widget with all the albums that were bookmarked.

Debbie Gibson, Out of the Blue
firedancyr7's paragraph accompanying this Buzzworthy selection is hilariously familiar: "Imagine me as an 8 year old kid with a side pony-tail and HUGE earings that no 8 year old should be wearing with ripped calf length black tights under a hot pink ruffled skirt, two pairs of socks so the crazy colors on both could show AND my purple jellies that made me feel like I was wearing princess shoes. I would dance around the room singing 'Only In My Dreams' as if I had written the song itself. Don't you kind of miss that wholesome childhood pop?"

INXS, Kick
auroraforever clearly loved this album when she was younger. As she says, "I literally wore this tape out I played it so many times."

More great first albums if you


Grease
I'm pretty sure preteen girls still screech along to "Summer Nights" at junior high dances today. Sweet Tea says this about her bookmark: "The first album that I made my parents buy me...I wore out their first LP — I still know all of these songs by heart."

Counting Crows, August and Everything After
darkbeauty chose this album, saying, "I loved this album then and I still love it now."

U2, War
A woman of my own heart, Advah selected this title and writes, "I've been a massive U2 fan for over 14 years now, and I remember being incredibly proud when I managed to gather enough money to go and buy my very first album, which was War, to listen to on my very first stereo (which was actually my big brother's old stereo). I seriously love this album, it still sounds amazing, and I still get nostalgy goosebumps every time I listen to it!"

I was also 8 when Out of the Blue came out. I remember walking to Raleys (when they used to be more than a grocery store) and buying it and thinking about how far that walk really was. It was so worth it @ the time though...LOL

I don't really remember my first album. My parents had so many of them already and I grew up listening to all different kinds of music, i.e. ACDC, KISS, Def Leopard, Journey, Donny Osmond, Deep Purple, Whitesnake. I think I actually bought one of those mini-records of the song Carrie by Europe when i was little. That may have been my first album to buy.

GOD I loved that Debbie Gibson album! I was 8 or 9 as well and my grandma gave it to me on an actual record because she thought DG was "wholesome". I knew all the words to it.
