My First 45 Record -- How Will I Know My Love?
When I was a little girl, probably around 10 or 11 years old, I loved the series on the Mickey Mouse Club which featured Annette. Around this time I also got a used record player... you know one of those little portable kinds in a case.
The first 45 record that I purchased was "How Will I Know My Love" by Annette. Yes I just loved Annette.
The record cost was 29 cents. I'm not sure but I was probably making 25 cents a week in allowance. I know you could buy a Tigerbeat magazine for 19 cents and a candy bar for 5 cents... so 25 cents went far.
I found a youtube video of the song. Listening to it now, I'm surprised I liked it. I mean there is an organ playing in the background and I really, really, really dislike organs. But even now that song will pop into my head.
This record was released in 1958. However, 8 or 10 years later, The Mickey Mouse Club was rerunning there shows from the 50's. And so I purchased this record probably in 1967 or 1968.
So here's the song...Enjoy
