First Song You Ever Liked

There are a few things I remember from being really, really little – and music is one of them. My parents loved their music, although their favorites were quite different. My dad liked singer/songwriters, for the most part, and my mom liked 50s/60s pop. And yes, we had a big console stereo in our living room for many years.

Given that, then, I can also remember the first song I ever really liked. And it was “Copacabana” by Barry Manilow because… yes, my mom was a fan (and still is!) I was young, what can I say?

But Manilow doesn’t mean anything to me. The first song I liked and found on my own, thanks to MTV, was Joe Jackson’s “Steppin’ Out.” I still like it.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
