    I didn't buy records until much later in life when it was all albums. My elder bother bought all the records.
    I did download Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead from the Wizard Of Oz after Margaret Thatcher died.
    I totally agree with you about the Beatles single and I've also got an old copy of that Guinness book.

    Like Aqualung I didn't buy records (or pre-recorded cassettes) until later in life, I bought my first album (Bolan Boogie) long before my first single - Will You - Hazel O'Connor. Taped dozens off the radio though .

    Come to think about it Ding Dong The Witch is Dead might have been my first download.

    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    Not a bad first single, there will be a lot worse out there.

    Yes, a hard act to follow.

    I can remember records that my parents and uncles had in the 50s: Leadbelly, Lonnie Donegan, Chris Barber, Buddy Holly. Then me and my brothers would get the occasional record for Christmas: I can remember a 10" 78rpm Little Drummer Boy; a comedy song by Tommy Steel called What a Mouth (What a North and South); EPs by Burl Ives, Leadbelly and Manfred Mann (with the rather silly Doo Wah Diddy Diddy featuring a great vocal by Paul Jones).

    First record I bought for myself though was The Windmills of Your Mind (from the Thomas Crown Affair) by Noel Harrison. Second was Get Back.
    Come On You Hatters!

    How unfortunate, given the martians' demise.

    It took me about 20 seconds to look it up in my Guinness Book Of British Hit Singles.

    Vincent, Don McLean, which is weird because I'm quite into Van Gogh's paintings.
    First single brought with my own money was Theres A Ghost In My House R. Dean Taylor.
