Here's an extension to the "skeletons" thread. What was the first CD you purchased with your own money. For those of use who are older, what was your first album or tape? I remember riding my bike to a local music store and plunking down my hard-earned cast to buy... "Paradise Theater" by Styx. It is now long-gone, never replaced when I dumped my record collection before moving from one apartment to another, maybe ten years ago.
