Apple History, News

Steve Jobs announced the first iPod on October 23, 2001. Though famously lampooned at first, the iPod went on to become Apple’s most iconic product. So on a slow news day, we thought we’d go back and look at the first songs ever played on an iPod in public.

The first song demoed by Steve Jobs was “Building a mystery” by Sarah McLachlan which was followed by “Could You be Loved” by Bob Marley and The Wailers. Next came “Bach: Prelude, Cello Suite No.1” by Yo Yo Ma’s, followed by “I should have known better” by The Beatles, and concluding with “Big Wave” by Southern All Stars.
