On a Carousel by the Hollies. Actually, my parents bought it for me since I was only a nipper at the time.

Though they were more than more than outdated at the time, the first 45 I bought was, I believe, Killer Queen.

The last one I bought was a double 45 EP called "Pillowcase" by Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs just a few weeks back. It's great! Two of my favorites in one. :)

My first 45 was Pop Muzik by a group simply called "M".

It was the cheesiest, lamest excuse for music, and it sounded like most of the "instruments" probably were generated by something with the words CASIO attached to them. And it was a #1 hit for some ghastly reason.

I'm glad I still have it.

My first 45s were all Disney/kids records. I used to play them on my Strawberry Shortcake record player. :-)

I love this topic.

Mine was of Freddie's "I Was Born To Love You" .. eh I have most of his vinyl records and a lot of Queen's. I also have a lot of Queen and Freddie's 12", cd, and cassette singles.

I also have a bucket full of 45s by different artists. I even have Brian Wilson's favorite song 'Be My Baby' performed by The Ronettes. I got some Peter Wolf singles and the newest 7" singles I have are by My Chemical Romance, two of "I Don't Love You" which each have different b-sides, and one 7" of 'Welcome To The Black Parade'... MCR usually release 7" singles as well as CD singles.

I could kick myself for getting rid of all my 45s.

33 1/3s, too, for that matter.

(Sorry for extra post - the site wouldn't let me edit). "Website error" or something.

Good for you, but that wasn't the question.
