Do you guys remember the very first song you've ever downloaded (legally or not) on the Internet and what year? For me it was sometimes in 1995. It was a RealAudio (.ra) file, a live version of R.E.M.'s "The Wake-Up Bomb", a song that was unreleased at the time. Exciting times. But like most .ra files at the time, the song was all distorted and compressed, barely listenable.
