Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five – "The Message" (Sugar Hill, 1982)
When my parents had parties they would put this record on and have me and my sister come entertain guests by singing along. It wouldn't be until years later that I fully understood the lyrics to The Message and see just how funny it was to have little toddlers singing along to it. "Rats in the front room, roaches in the back, Junkie's in the alley with a baseball bat" ha ha ha!!!

"Like at the present time I'm interested in sorting records, because I think that music has like some kind of powers to it that would be interesting to explore, and I've already done this. I've made a large collection of records."
