INSTANT!
The first time I saw the video for A Thousand Miles, the scene when she's in the city, the camera is pointed upward to the skyscrapers, I was glued to the TV, and at the end wrote down her name to find more.



I was hooked.

Second I heard her

Was on the radio at work, and I remember I was wishing everybody would shut the hell up so I could hear that song, I loved it from the first note.

I loved her right away!
I remember I was listening to Kiis, I just had dsl like a month before so it was my first times listening to an American radio station really.
Then I heard the first notes and I was like "OMG, who is THAT?"
The name was displayed "Vanessa Carlton - A Thousand Miles".
A few minutes later, I had downloaded the song and I played it for HOURS on my comp.
Then I went to CDNow (they don't exist anymore) and looked up the release date for the single and the album. I even ordered the single, it was like $2.50 and $6 for shipping! lol
The rest is history.  :wink:

I remember when I first heard ATM on the radio, I was shocked. I thought, "Wait....this song has...piano in it....and violins....and all this classical stuff....wow!" I loved how it would start out subtly with the beginning piano riff, and then build and build, and then end as subtly as it had begun...

Now, it did take me a while to decide that I wanted to buy BNN, and then it took a while for me to really warm up to the songs on it, and then it took me a while to become the NESSAholic that I am today....

But that's part of my personality. I can't just passively like something--if I like it, I have to obsess about it; computers, Latin, and now Nessa 8)

I heard ATM on the way to DC, and Ordinary Day on the way back. ATM got my attention, and OD got me hooked.

Crazy. Then I saw the video for ATM and I was like . . . woahhh. Hot.

Took me about a month.  Early March '02 was when I first heard her, I figure by April I must have like her because that's when I joined the o-board.

I was hooked the first time I saw the vid ... even though my friend made me watch it with the sound off because he hates pop music  :lol:

well i couldn't stand her for one reason and one reason alone:
she's dating stephan jenkins (childish, i know... but a massive amount of 3eb fans are convinced that the band doesn't do shit because he's so "distracted" by vanessa...)
i heard ATM and thought it was okay, but i wasn't really super-impressed by anything but the piano.
but then a certain NESSAholic, who shall remain nameless, sent me "all i ask" and my basic reaction was a jaw drop. so i searched all her fansites and downloaded as much as possible, and was just... REALLY impressed, lol.
so i bought her cd.
and now i realize that it's stephan's own damn fault. if i were her, i'd want him to produce my album, too. :D
