I was a late adopter of the cassette tape. I usually just listened to records (while roller skating in the basement). The Chipmunks sing the Beatles, Early Whitney Huston (super early it seems), and the Footloose soundtrack (turns out 84-85 were my years for records)--among others. I remember a lot of spinning to Let's Hear it for the Boy!
On the way to work today, I heard music from my first cassette tape (along with Amy Grant's Heart In Motion). I was shocked to find I still knew every word.
Wish me luck at noon--I get to be radioactive again. Lovely.
