Welcome back to Weekend Music Share.
Last week I asked you to share a song that featured a favourite musical instrument. The song I shared got me thinking about the first musical instrument I learned to play.
That instrument doesn’t feature in the song I’m sharing with you this weekend, but it got me thinking about other ‘firsts’.
‘Never Gonna Give You Up‘ was written and produced by Stock, Aiken and Waterman, and became Rick Astley’s first hit. And what a ‘first’ it was.
The song became a huge international hit when it peaked at number one on the singles’ chart of no less than 14 countries. Not only that, but it became the best selling single of 1987 in the UK.
Not bad for a first hit, wouldn’t you say?
This week, share a favourite song that was a ‘first’ for an artist, group or band. Share a link to it in the comments, or link back to this post from your blog.
Feel free to use the ‘Weekend Music Share‘ banner in your post, and don’t forget to use the hashtag #WeekendMusicShare on social media so other participants can find your post.
My thanks to Erika Kind for the inspiration for this feature.
