Default First song you ever remember hearing...

Not a nursery rhyme or children's song...but first real rock or pop song that you can remember hearing on the radio or being played by your parents on the stereo or whatever.

I have a distinct memory of being about 6 or 7 and sitting in my bedroom floor with my little portable radio on and hearing Clapton's I Shot the Sheriff. I remember just kind of stopping and listening to that song. I don't know why this memory is so distinct (I can't remember anything else I was doing before or after the song but just that little snippet of sitting in the floor and listening to it) but it really sticks out in my mind. So I guess that's my first real introduction to "real" music.

Just wondering if any of you had any such memories? Doesn't have to be drum influenced or related...
