What's the first song you remember liking?

For me, it's this:

Once You Understand by Think


It's variously been described as "one of the most frightening pieces of recorded music ever" and "the worst hit song of all time."

I understand that a lot of stations wouldn't play it because it was considered too controversial, but that never stopped WJIM.

Anyway, all I know is that it was hugely popular among all the third graders I knew.

Evidently, southeast Texas radio stations wouldn't play the song because I never heard of it and, in 1971, I constantly listened to the radio.

More importantly, MY NAME IS ON THE RECORD LABEL!!!

One of my earliest favorites might compete for "the worst hit song of all time." It's Timothy by The Buoys. I think it may still be the only song about cannibalism to ever make the Top 40. It was wriiten by Rupert Holmes of "Pina Colada" fame. "I like munching on humans... and gettin' caught in the rain."
