    I was 19 and just finished my first year of college. Right after my last final of the year, I finished moving into my very first apartment in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia. It was all mine. No roommates, no RA's, no siblings! Just me, myself and I. My mom bought me some groceries and loaded my fridge. I was so happy and excited as I saw her pull away in her car on her way back to my hometown, but this time without me. I was left by myself in my own place. I turned on the radio and Peter, Bjorn and Johns 'Young Folk' was playing. THE PERFECT SONG TO CAPTURE THE MOMENT!!! It was summer, the sun was shining and I was eager to invite all my new friends to have a big bash at my first apartment. Now everytime I hear that song, I'm taken back there. That excited 'omgmyfirstplaceallbymyselfthisisfreakinawesome' feeling comes rushing in.

    So realjocks, what songs take you back to a first? It could be any first. Your first crush, first fight, first drunken experience, first time in a gay club, first time on stage, first kiss, first car, first death, first divorce, first marriage, first pet, first crime commited, first love, first child. FIRST FIRST FIRST Anything, as long as its your first.

    Peter, Bjorn and John - Young Folk

    I went on a week-long white water rafting trip on the Ottawa River when I was twelve. I had an amazing time with a hot sixteen year-old guy named Jake the whole week we were there, and he was the first guy I'd sleep with that really meant anything to me. It was a long drive there and back from Toronto, and we spent tons of time in the mini-bus that week, but the only two cds we had were an Ace of Base cd some girl brought and my Stone Temple Pilots cd. I think of Jake anytime I hear "Don't Turn Around" by Ace of Base, or "Vaseline" by STP.

    Doug's first love -the song that went with it...icon_rolleyes.gif




    You can take me to paradise,
    And then again you can be cold as ice
    I'm over my head,
    But it sure feels nice.

    You can take me anytime you like,
    I'll be around if you think you might love me baby,
    And hold me tight.

    Your mood is like a circus wheel,
    You're changing all the time,
    Sometimes I cant help but feel,
    That I'm wasting all of my time.

    Think I'm looking on the dark side,
    But everyday you hurt my pride,
    I'm over my head,
    But it sure feels nice,
    I'm over my head,
    But it sure feels nice.

    First kiss: summer of 1980, I was 16 not quite 17. The older brother (home from college for the summer) of a guy I had been crushing on all year was working as a lifeguard with me at a neighborhood city park pool. We were at his house, in the family room on the couch... Barry Manilow was singing CopaCabana on the TV... Turned my world upside down.

    Gaelle - Falling

    ... the film Jack, starring Robin Williams, destroys me. I end up balling my eyes out every time ... all because of:

    Bryan Adams - Star.

    First time I had sex with a woman, she wanted to hear repeatedly "All That She Wants" by Ace of Bass. Ummm, the song lyrics are as follows:

    When she woke up late in the morning
    Light and the day had just begun
    She opened up her eyes and thought
    O what a morning
    Its not a day for work
    Its a day for catching tan
    Just laying on the beach and having fun
    Shes going to get you

    All that she wants is another baby
    Shes gone tomorrow boy
    All that she wants is another baby
    All that she wants is another baby
    Shes gone tomorrow boy
    All that she wants is another baby

    All that she wants - all that she wants

    So if you are in sight and the day is right
    Shes a hunter youre the fox
    The gentle voice that talks to you
    Wont talk forever
    Its a night for passion
    But the morning means goodbye
    Beware of what is flashing in her eyes
    Shes going to get you

    All that she wants...



    Needless to say, that was the last time I slept with a woman.

    First time in a gay bar, Buzzbe's in SF on Polk street 1976, met my First boyfriend, he asked me to dance, my First with a man to the song, "Heaven Must be Missin an Angel. This became my First bonding song with a man. Took him home, which was my First time with a man, we fucked all night, another First was the fucking. There were so many First's with him. First time with a hung, hairy, muscular man. First time to finally feel it was okay to feel good about being gay, and btw he is still my First, we have been partners since that First night.

    First song that made me figure out that I wasn't made to be an introvert. My friend would pull me and start dancing this song with me in our high school hallways, classrooms, buses, metros, everywhere. Everytime it plays, I think of her and how grateful I am to have her icon_smile.gif
