Writer's Workshop: First CD

Got this wonderful prompt from the ever-funny Mama Kat over at Mama's Losin' It. Want to join in on the madness?  Check it out here.

ah, I remember it like it was yesterday!  The first CD I ever owned.  I got it for Christmas when I was 12 (eeks, that was 15 years ago).  

I had just received my first CD player and was a little bummed that I had no CDs when my Mother whipped out some surprise gifts she had hidden away just to mess with our heads!  Gotta love those childhood moments of parents F**king with us! 

Anyway, I rip mine open and it is the new band Ace of Base!  I couldn't believe it.  My mom had actually given me a gift that I WANTED!!  I then proceeded to rip open the CD and hurriedly placed it (gently) in my brand spanking new CD player.  

I jammed out for months and months to that CD.  I was so happy.  No more crappy tapes!  No more outdated music!  No more feeling like a loser because I was the only one my age that didn't have a CD player or CDs!!

I wish I could say that I still had that CD.  I, sadly, do not.  It eventually (and by eventually I mean 8 years later) gave out and was just too scratched to listen to anymore.  

Just talking about it, I had to go listen to me some Ace of Base!  I get all nostalgic listening to it!  My kids look at me like I am a total spazz when I freak out when I hear it on the radio!  I start singing at the top of my lungs and dancing in the car!!!!! (all the while getting death looks from my 13 year old! ahhh, teenagers, nothing like embarrassing the heck out of them!) 

Anywho, here is a little video of the music video for "The Sign".  My absolute fav from that first CD I ever owned!  Enjoy!


  1. Ah yes, I remember Ace of of my favorite songs! I love to embarrass my 13 year's what I live for!

  2. Ah. Ace of Base. I remember.

    I saw that you have another blog about a tubal reversal. I had my tubes tied and have had problems ever since so I'm curious......any chance you'd give me permission to look around?

  3. Boy did that bring back memories. I saw the sign.... Makes me want to listen to mine. You know if you take a badly worn cd and record it very very slowly... don't know the proper term, it will make it like new when you burn it. I did that with my Three Dog Night greatest hits.
