Um. Yea. Not a very happy start, but this is my earliest memory with music. I have no idea what age I was when I saw this movie, but I usually tell people that I was 4-5 years old when this event happened.
When I was younger I would wake up to loud noises that were in my head, kind of sounded like orchestra blasts on a keyboard. For a while I thought things had just fallen from my dresser or closet, but one night something different woke me up. I assume that I had watched "The Lion King" before I slept, and I also assume that I was sound asleep for a few hours. This particular night, the loud noise came back, but it wasn't a blast of sound. It was the music from this scene. I literally thought that the movie was playing in the living room, so I went to go shut it off. As I got closer, the sound increased until finally it was at the section where Simba says, "Dad?" Of course the television was off, there was no movie on, but clear as day I could hear this soundtrack, and I proceeded to recite, verbatim, Simba's entire dialogue until I started sobbing in the middle of the living room. Then I went back to bed.
This was my earliest memory as a child and it was my very first conscious encounter with the power of music in my life. The next one was a lot more lighthearted, thank goodness.
