The World's first known Recorded Song

In 1877, with the creation of his phonograph complete, Thomas Edison was known to have recorded his rendition of 'Mary Had a Little Lamb'. In March 2008 a recording by Frenchman Edouard-Leon Scott de Martinville of a woman singing 'Au... Clair De La Lune' was found 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. This video has the original sample the song.
