Sharing My World 01-05-2023

Here is my post for Share Your World, hosted by Di.

The First of May is a Bee Gees Song. Do you like the Bee Gees and if so, what is your favourite track?
They’re not a particular favourite, but some of their songs are okay.

What was the first record (single or album) you bought?
I believe it was a cassette tape of the album “Super Trouper” by Abba.

Not my actual copy

Do you know what was top of the charts the day you were born?
Nope. But I shall use the handy link supplied to find out!

It was apparently “Je T’Aime… Moi Non Plus” by “Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg”. Very sexy. Like me 😉

I also looked up Number 1 on my 18th birthday, which the site says is my “life theme” and coincidentally it was “You Win Again” by the Bee Gees!

Do you and your partner have a ‘special tune’?
No special tune. No partner!

    There seems to be only about ten years age difference between us, yet my first purchase was a 45 and yours a cassette. Seems like a big jump in technology in ten years.

      I have a big collection of 45s as well! Cassettes were around long before me, though maybe back then they were “8 track” 🙂
      I just had a Google actually, the cassette tape was invented in 1963.

        I can remember using cassettes to record music off the radio ,boy wasn’t that an arduous process! You didn’t want to get the DJ’s voice but he always came on and talked over the end of the song.
        I googled: when did people start buying music on cassette tapes? And got Although the birth and growth of the cassette began in the 1960s, its cultural moment took place during the 1970s and 1980s. The cassette’s popularity grew during these years as a result of being a more effective, convenient and portable way of listening to music.

          I spent ages recording songs off my record player. That was a pretty delicate process!

    Thanks for playing along. I bought Super Trouper as an album the year I left my first husband!

    I remember doing the 18th birthday song a long time ago when I heard that, and was disappointed to find out it was a song titled “Weak.” Yeah, thanks Sisters With Voices…

      I doubt it, I think they got thrown away a while ago. I have nothing to play them on anyway! I have a CD of Super Trouper somewhere, and I sill have a load of vinyl records from my childhood.

        I got rid of all my vinyl, reel to reel tapes, CD’s, and most of my cassettes. I have a little gizmo that allows me to play cassettes via my Mac. I miss the reel to reel as they were mostly recordings from AFN from the late 60’s, early 70’s where they played non stop music with very few interruptions!

          I have a large collections of CDs “just in case”. I wouldn’t want to be left with no music if Alexa goes on strike 😮

    I really didn’t follow music, unlike most of the other people I knew. I was probably more bookish. I listened to music — but classical mostly and that was because that was what I played. I was always looking for records (vinyl!) where someone good was playing a piece I was learning. It helped me clarify sections that somehow weren’t clear just from the notations.

    Until recently with all the emphasis on pop music, I never realized how out of touch I was. All those years when all my friends were busy watching “American Bandstand,” I was practicing piano. Also, to be fair, I found Bandstand kind of boring.

      I was always listening to music, I had my Walkman and later my Discman for out and about and a little cassette player and record player in my bedroom.
