Do the Bartman

I was looking for something in a drawer today, and I came across a few old CDs. Among the stack was the first compact disc I ever owned - The Simpsons Sing the Blues.

I remember it was Christmas morning in 1990 and I received my very first CD player as part of those box stereos. It had a record player on top, CD just below that and two tape decks. At the time I thought I was hot shit. This bad boy would rock my room like no one's business, obviously. There were two tape decks that I could finally do some dubbing and this CD player was all the rage. The Simpsons disc came with it from my parents and I did not hesitate in setting it up (which required plugging it in and hooking up the two speakers cables) and I was doing "the bartman" in no time.

It just seems weird to me that I still have the very first CD I ever received almost twenty years ago. There aren't any others in my collection that are that old. I really don't have that many actual discs anymore anyways. In fact, I am about to go through the ones that I have and get rid of them all except for a few that I want to keep for collectible or sentimental reasons (I guess). You can bet I will be keeping The Simpsons, how could I ever get rid of that?

What was the first CD you ever rocked? I only want CDs, I already had plenty of tapes and records at this point too.
