WORLD'S FIRST RECORDED SONG
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first recorded song?

In 1877, with the creation of his phonograph complete, Thomas Edison tested it.

The first song ever recorded was his rendition of 'Mary Had a Little Lamb'.

UPDATE: March 24, 2009

In March 2008 a recording by Frenchman Edouard-Leon Scott de Martinville of a woman singing 'Au Clair De La Lune' was discovered in an archive in Paris by a group of American audio historians. The recording dates back to April 9, 1860 making it the world's first known recorded song.

Although very scratchy and hard to make out and only 10 seconds long, you can listen to it here.
