Oh yes I remeber the first time I heard Jami. I was I guess hmmmm 20 years old. SO that was about 6 years ago. I was with my boyz Ettienne, Aaron and Robbie G. visiting them while they were in college. It was a crazy keg party with a whole lot of beautiful boys and girls getting jiggy with the DJ. When all of a sudden this lovely song came on. That would be Space Cowboy. I turned to the sexy DJ boy and said Whoa what would that song be? Please oh please tell me so I can go grab it. HE let me know and I've been hooked ever since!!!! rasta hat Very Happy

That was a fun party....what ever happened to those days?

Hey, everyone, I'm new on this MB. I hope everyone's doing fine!

My "first time" with Jamiroquai:
I've been a fan since 92/93. I remember being at home one saturday evening listening to one of the countless radio programmes that specialize in dance music. All of a sudden, the dj said that he was going to play a record by a new group, who was becoming very successful in England. The track was "when you gonna learn" and it was still climbing the British charts then. Needless to say, I fell in love with it immediately. It's still one of my favourite J songs. The following week I bought EOPE and have been a true J addict ever since. However only a long time later did they have their first big hit here with the dance version of "space cowboy".

first time I heard Jamiroquai was probably back in 98' with deeper underground. me and my friends used to laugh about the song's lyrics, mainly becuase with didn't understand them Smile , but I assume I liked that song. only that time I was starting to be interesting on music (when jamiroquai started I was probably only 6 or 7). anyways, it probably all started when I saw canned heat on mtv euro for the first time. I really loved the song and the cool video, and it became one of my first mp3 files. when supersonic was released, although I didn't like it at first, I searched more jamiroquai songs in the net. I already knew virtual insanity, alright etc. by that time. on 2000 I got my first jamiroquai disc, TWM, which a friend burned to me. on my 14 birthday that year I asked for the other 3 records of them (it was before AFO Exclamation ). I was amazed to find out that that violin music that some famous talk show radio program was actually from too young to die. and the rest is history...

"The first time"
Well, really shame on me..... Embarassed i just recognized that jamiroquai is the best band in the world about a year ago Exclamation
i remember that i always wanted to buy an album of them ( i remember spacycowboy) but i never did... since my brother put on EOPE , at his birthday party .... and he gave me this cd and the newest album AFO...
after listning to them i really fell in love with the music! Heart was like a feeling which i thought a 33 year old women can´t have anymore Very Happy
of course i bought the other albums of them! and really i can listen to them all the time, it never becomes boring.... and i love each track jumpinggreens of them! there´s none which i don´´t like! (i never had this by every other group ) really this music just was like a flash, good deep into my soul

it´s only once or twice you´re in line with mr. moon !!

I just had to register to the board now because you just said what i was thinking about while reading this thread.
I just can't believe what is happening to me at this moment. I never thought there would be a time i would be so crazy about a band that already exists for years!

I knew about Jamiroquai for some years now, so i don't exactly know when i first heard their music, they were just kinda always there and the songs came and went, but i never took the time to REALLY listen to the songs.

A couple of weeks ago (this must sound hilarious for the long time fans) i bought Travelling Without Moving and I downloaded some other tracks i remembered liking back then. This didn't start things off, but then i saw the video for 'Corner Of The Earth'. Now don't ask what happened exactly, but now I have all 5 albums playing non stop (got a lot of catching up to do) and i cannot stop listening to them. Not that i want to...

Being a long time fan and collector of another artist, i always feel sorry for newbies, because they have already missed out on so many wonderful things. The albums are still there but they have missed tours, they missed the rushes of new album releases, etc., and now i'm the newbie that has missed out on Jamiroquai tours and all, and who is trying to become familiar to all the albums at once!

*waving and saying hi to all the members on this board*

Hi, everybody!
It's my first message here.

I don't remember which song I heard first, but when I heard "When you gonna learn" I was 11 (about 10 years ago), I even wondered who is singing? Who is playing this strange instrument (didgeridoo, it was the first time I heard it) What a strange voice (is it a man or a girl? Embarassed)

I had a friend who used to say that she loved Jamiroquai, and I asked to my brother who was Jamiroquai. He answered that it was the group that sings : "To young to die". I heard this song before (was it before "When you gonna learn"? I don't remember). And so I started to know more about this group.

I even heard "Cosmic Girl" ( and thought: I definitely love this song!!!!), "Space Cowboy", "Virtual Insanity" and on January 2000, the group performed on TV, Jay sang "King for a Day" ( it won an award for best site, if I had well understood), this song staid in my mind for many years..., like Deeper Underground...

And it is only a few months ago that I bought all the albums (end of the year 2001)

I know I should be ashamed for not being aware of the group before Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed , but now I'm a Jamiroquai addict! Razz Razz

Sorry if I'm boring Sad

¸.¤°´¯`.¸ I think I beat you all here......
.....I heard the first ever play on a local London station, Jazz FM. It was early September 1992....if Iremember rightly. The dj,Peter Young or PY the pork pie, a friend of Eddie Pillar,owner of Acid Jazz records,came on the air....this is the first play ever .....he played 'when you gonna learn'....yes he did sound like a beautiful black diva......even his manager said that on the carling programme. Me, being a lover of animals and the planet ,loved it straight away.The rest is history......36 concerts, 43 cd's 40 vinyl recordings and 30 or so official jamy tops later(yes all official, none of that downloaded stuff.....but saying that.....thats the only way to get some tracks) I still love the music as much as day 1.
bye bye for now

I remember first hearing of Jamiroquai in '94 when a couple of friends were talking about them, but I kind of forgot about it. Then, Virtual Insanity came out and I was like "so that's who they were gushing over!." I'm kind of like Ezzi though. I did buy TWM when it came out, but haven't become a total fanatic until the last year or so. snore

Hmmmm Rolling Eyes I cannot remember when excactly I got to know about Jamiroquai rasta hat ....but I think it was trough my brother who liked the music back in 1996 or before. Then I think I saw VI on MTV once and I really enjoyed the video Very Happy . Then at private school smoke'n'jump I remember the girls anxious in our class all liked '4 non blondes' YUCK Rolling Eyes balla balla ..and all boys liked 'Jamiroquai' king , which the girls could totally not understand middle fingers (BITCHES). Actually I liked 'Jamiroquai' a lot better than '4 non blondes' for obvous reasons Cool ..but I would have never admit that to the bitches in my class mutant . Next phase of Jamiroquai and when I bought all available albums supersonic black on the marked, was 1997 when I really listened EOPE rasta hat , TROTSC big hat , and TWM supersonic black all the time, driving to work, at the break and on my off days. Then I forgot a bit about the band Embarassed ..and started to listen them again in 2001..when I bought the syncronized album supersonic white ..and a few month ago the last album bounce .
Be open and honest..coz the next person u meet could become ur best friend.

my first time?
well, the first time i heard the artistic, innovative and wonderful music of jamiroquai was when i was 11, at my brother's house! Smile he put on a cd called, "too young too die"! he knew very well i would like this song, esp. the vocal singing!! after hearing the song, i was completely hooked on this single! i couldn't get it out of my head, it was pure genius....the instrumentals, JK's voice, the overall song was just amazing & i was so soo happy to witness this song being performed at the carling gig. wooo hooo! lol

Thank You Jamiroquai. Laughing
My heart is a pure sun and the sky is black, and I can feel cold steel when I turn my back, it stings like needles, with a jagged tongue, you know this scream reminds me, of when I was so young

The first time I ever heard Jamiroquai...
Well. I am fifteen now. (GCSE's this year, damn) The first time I heard Jamiroquai was when Virtual Insanity was released so I would have been about 10 years old! I loved this song. It was the chorus and everthing about it just changed my life because that year for my tenth birthday i got a copy of Travelling Without moving and that was it. This was music. Ever since then all I have ever listened to is Jamiroquai and nothing else. I have altogether about 43 cds, 10 tapes, 2 minidiscs, 5 vinyl (all albums) and a couple of videos. This isn't much compared to some Jamirofans but considering my age and I've been collectin' for 5 years now, I think that I have a good collection !!! buffaloman_V buffaloman_B buffaloman_R buffaloman

First time I heard Jamiroquai... & HELLO I'm new!
The FirstTime I heard Jamiroquai was, I believe, at the JelloBar in Montreal (my city!) and I remember going to the record store and buying the CD the following week. It was almost 9 years ago?!? Not sure. I thought it was Stevie Wonder doing a "come back" but I couldn't believe he had gone from super-duper-crapy "I just called to say I love you" to do this & suddenly have "gotten his groove back on" again!

I must admit his music makes me "happy inside" while a lot of music fell into the "Shoot-me-I'm-too-dumb-to-exist" Grunge category, Jamiroquai was a breath of fresh air!
