Might be hard to remember from all the music over radio and TV at the time, but can you recall the first song where you really "heard" it, and thought, I get it, this is rock and roll, and I LIKE IT !

For me it was the Rolling Stones 45 of "I Used to Love Her". Was at a friend's house, third grade, he was playing some 45's that belonged to his big brother. I wasn't really paying attention, it all sounded like noise to me, but when I heard Brian Jones kick in that intro, I was hooked on the spot. I told that kid if he didn't give me the record I was going to take it anyway. After whining that his brother was going to kill him, he finally gave it to me. My argument was that if his brother liked it so much, why did he let him have it. I wore it down to powder

Yes, that's what it was called. Funny, got the title wrong but could recite the lyrics for you perfect.

Besides hearing the AM madness songs of the 70's, you know like "the playground in my mind", "rock the boat" and "kung fu fighting" the song that I liked and remember hearing was "Smoke On The Water". It did take me a few years to finally pick up Machine Head, I still listen to that album to this day.

Probably Elvis on Ed Sullivan

I remember the first song I ever heard on my first AM radio. Got one from Dad for Christmas in 68.
Turned it on and the top 40 station was playing "Crimson and Clover" by Tommy James and the Shondells.

I was a bit of a late bloomer. At 8 (Beatles 1964) I was still into show tunes, Louis Armstrong. But, I had two uncles (one a Beatles fan; one a Four Seasons Fan) and I remember incessantly listening to one's copy of The Beatles vs The Four Seasons in 1964. I'm sure I had heard Elvis previously, but that was my indoctrination.

My real love of rock, however, started with the Doors and Light My Fire in 1967. Jim Morrison was the Darth Vader of my youth.

Either Shake, Rattle, and Roll or Rock Around the Clock. I think both were by Bill Haley and the Comets, although somebody else did Shake Rattle and Roll earlier. Hound Dog was next. Mid 50's......I think.

Tough call. Born in the early 50's and having two older sisters and a brother I was exposed to whatever they were listening to on the NYC AM radio(WABC, WMCA)stations.

Maybe Elvis?

Or Maybe Rick Nelson?
There was a T.V. show, "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet". They had two sons, and Ricky was a singer and strummed a guitar. At the end of some episodes he would perform a song in front of a sock hop crowd of girls. Some songs were kinda rock-a-billy. My first visual of a performer rockin' and teenybopper chicks squealing.

My father bought my first 45 (picture sleeve) single and it was Rick Nelson's "Fools Rush In".

I really have no clue but looking back the first one I remember having an effect on me was the Beatles 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand'. I had that on a 45 that a cousin gave me when I was around six years old and I wore that out on my parents record player. I also remember the Doors 'Light My Fire' which was also given to me by the same cousin who gave me a whole stack of 45s.

The first that I remember making an impression on me:

I was a youngster driving to my grandparents' house with my parents. Probably late 1980s. A song came on the radio, and my parents turned it up and sang every word at the top of their lungs. I was sitting in the back, just taking it all in. The song seemed to go on forever. The lyrics were cool, the refrain was awesome, and the ending was spectacular.

I thought it was the coolest song ever.

Don McLean -- American Pie.

When asked about the meaning of Pie McLean once responded "It means I never have to work again."

Saw him last year at Town Hall. He was excellend, but didn't play Castles In The Air which is the song I went to hear (sounds better with his aging voice than it did when he was younger)

Don McLean -- American Pie.
