Yes, this song is My First Musical Memory. Well, the first song besides nursery tunes and the like. I still get chills when I hear it and love that 5 1/2 year old me took music to heart as strongly as present day me.

I love that your first musical memory is older than you are :) The one that immediately came to mind for me was “Up Up and Away” (the Fifth Dimension”). My Dad loved that song and we’d sing it together in the car. Great memory. Oh and the salmon and capers looks yummy too!
