First ever download...

What was the first song you ever downloaded, and when/where did you download it?

Should be easy to check by arranging your song's by the date created or modified (whichever's first), unless you deleted your first ever download.

I remember when I first downloaded a song. I was like 'WOW, this is cool!!', but it's obviously the norm now.

Anyway, the first song I ever downloaded was 'Berlin - Take My Breath Away' ... (don't ask)... on the 5th August 2000 (from Napster of course). ;)

    Mine was in the summer of 2000 - Verse Chorus Verse by Nirvana from Napster.

    Haven't heard it since then though because Audiogalaxy came along pretty quickly.

    Ahh no, I remember now. It was a Madonna tune from Winamp.com then I started using Napster around June and downloaded Lynard Skynard - Sweet Home Alabama. That was about 1999.

    I can't remember when it was, probably 2000 or 2001 sometime. I downloaded Napster just to download I Dissappear by Metallica. Then I logged of and never used Napster again :p
