Music made me who I am. I'm sure you feel the same way.

 There are artists - and specific songs - 
that I believe define the person I am today. 
Here's just a few of them... 

Certainly the single most important music of my life. This is the very first album - the first record of any kind - that I ever bought. I got it at S. Klein's on the Square in downtown Newark, NJ in 1967. I was 14.
... 

... 

The first time I ever got high. Also 1967.

... 

And then there's this memory from my senior prom.

The first time I delved in to the confusing and complicated darkness (and magic) of a woman this was on in the background. Don't know how else to say it.
... 

This was a game changer for me.

... 

The woman hasn't been born yet who
 doesn't like gifts of nice jewelry.
As it happens, I know someone 
who makes that kinda stuff..

The first time I really fell in love? Most likely.

... 

A great live version of the song that reminds me all of the time of the first girl who broke my heart. Don't sweat it - there were plenty of them, but we all remember the first one, don't we...

... 

There's a great story behind this one, 
but I'll save that for another day.

... 

Summer of '69 - the very first concert I ever went to. 
Madison Square Garden. 
What a wonderful memory - holy crap...

... 

I have to include this one because my wife does 
occasionally DOES read this blog and I'd get my 
nuts crunched if I didn't include this.
 Our wedding dance song...

... 

I had an uncle who was a jazz drummer and he 
turned me on to this when I was about 15 or so. 
It's (the love of great jazz) been with me forever.

This was powerful stuff for a young kid 
to digest. I'm glad I did.
... 

This one's for a special occasion.

Michael Franks. The ultimate 'getting laid music' back in the day. 
Any guy who couldn't get laid with this on in the background probably 
became a priest or something worse...
... 

Hell - there's a ton more I could put on here but you guys probably have your own favorites. Post 'em in the comments - let everyone know what you know.
