In 1973 I was an 8 year old freshfaced naive little kid.
I was just at the beginning of my musical journey: West Side Story soundtrack, Donny Osmond, The Partridge Family, Neil Diamond, Neil Sedaka, and The Jungle Book soundtrack were the albums I was allowed to play.
I eventually ventured into my brothers’ and sisters’ albums: The Beatles, Mott the Hoople, Bob Dylan, …
and then I discovered Elton John‘s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” album with the first swear word I ever heard in a song.
“Where you really kick the shit when the sun goes down”
from Your Sister Can’t Twist (but she can rock and roll)
Life was never the same again!
Thank you Elton.
How did you lose your musical virginity?
note: you never forget your first.
