Thought I would start a thread - not for myself, but for everyone to post the first song they ever recorded (if they still have access to it) - note, not the first song you composed - the first recording you made that you still have access to.

Here's mine - remastered from a 128kbps mp3 which came from a cassette tape 15 years ago, recorded 1993:

You are a talented singer, Becky, congrats on a great vocal performance! :clap:

Not too happy about the music, though. It's too complex, I keep losing the rhythm while shaking my bum to it... Well I guess you didn't have a say in the music writing process - what a shame! :dog:

These were done somewhere around 2000 on a Pentium 2 and Fruity 3 (I guess), usually on a Sunday after getting wasted on pills the night before :hihi:

However, I am going to dig them out and try to finish them.

My first song recorded (and written too) is long gone. Done in 1977, it was called "Nobody Comes To My House Anymore" and features such wonderful lines like...

Nobody comes to my house anymore
They don't like the blood stains on the floor

That it is long lost and forgotten is probably a very good thing.

Don’t have access to it, but it was when I was in a band called Bloated Goat and the song was called ‘She’s Got the Horn’. Probably around 80 or 81.

It was terrible.

First one I even record was called She Can't Give. In a band I was in at the time. I think in 93 or 92. We got a grant from Canadian government to record in a studio. It was released on a tape cassette EP. It was pretty average Canadian rock music. Nothing exceptional. Obviously it went nowhere.

I don't have my oldest ever made song, but this isn't far from that: probably about 1999. Enjoy :bang: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/139205

I wonder where the inspiration for that came from.....

You are not far wrong... :hihi: ...but the lyrics also included reference to an Olympic silver medalist who the three of us were at school with, and her infatuation with a classmate who dabbled with membership of the Communist Party.

If I recall the lyrics correctly, they started:

“She was a trampoline star, and he was a communist man...”

Ok this is not my first recording, but it is one of the oldest I could find. It was on a cassette and was recorded around June 1984. I used one synth (Korg Poly 800) and two tapedecks with a splice in the stereo cable so I could dub multiple tracks from the output of the Poly 800...thus the bad quality, ha.
