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.
