Well I broke my iPod about a year ago on a trip but It probably would have been a song by The Temptations or Frank Sinatra.

some vivaldi. but then again, i think it was performed sometime in the 70's...

that said, it'd probably be robert johnson or some gershwin.

Awesome album. One of the greatest imo :) My earliest is Bob Dylan's self named and first album from 1962.

I don't have one.. but if I did, the oldest song would probably be something by The Ink Spots. I'd also have some performance of Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" on there..

I mainly listen to older music from the 60's/70's anyways..

I've got Beethoven and Mozart and other classical music.

Then skip ahead to like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bing Crosby and Bobby Darin.

Then I have like a bunch of 50's stuff. and 60's stuff.

My whole iPod is old music. I should have been born in the 50's.

Buddy Holly probably.

most of my music is 60's/70's

All of J.S. Bach's harpsichord concertos, they kick ass.

I don't have an iPod, so I have to interchange. Right now the oldest thing is... Cheshire Cat (Blink-182) that's from... 1994.

Written or performed? Performed it's probably coltraine from the early 60s, but written we start getting into classical music, on my ipod meaning wagner and bach.

The album featuring "Love Me Do", Please Please Me, came out 2 days before The Beach Boys' Surfin' USA, making it the oldest song on my computer (along with the rest of Please Please Me).

I actually have that record. I inherited a ton of old records when my dad passed and they are all in great shape. They range from the late 50's to the early 70's

My mother has first pressings of all the Beatles albums. She is quite the fan. My dad also has a bunch of original Who and Pink Floyd albums. Personally, of all their records my favorite has to be the original pressing of Thriller. It's just so damn cool.

My grandma is giving me every Beatles record when I get older. They've never been played either.

Thriller was the first album I ever bought. Damn, thanks for making me feel old.

Some Mozart probably.

Andres Segovia. I have a bunch of Segovia recordings from (if Im not mistaken) 1930-1970. Him playing Bach's Chaconne probably being the most impressive.

Here is a sound bite of him playing part of Chaconne.

Zeppelin 1? The who? Cream?

I'm not exactly sure which is the oldest. I would have the beatles, but I just don't like them for some reason.

I know it's nothing that special but it's some of Rush's oldest stuff....Pre-Neil Peart even from the late 60's.

Oldest album is Eric B and Rakim- Paid in Full. All those songs are tied for oldest.

Misirlou by Dick Dale (1962). I think.

Mine would for sure be the famous Satchmo. Got to love jazz.
Oldest songs would be classical. Gershwin is a winner. Rachmoninoff.

I'm pretty sure the oldest artist I have on mine is Bob Dylan.
I think one of the songs I have outdates both the stones and the beatles.

I checked my iPod and Ecstasy of Gold by Ennio Morricone is the oldest song (1966). That song is epic

This doesnt make sense to me. How can rush exist without Neal Peart!?
