1. Beatles - Please Please Me
Not "Love me do", not because it's a bad record, but all it needed was a harmonica and two (or three) voices. It could be "Liverpool Folk Music" of old. "Please Please Me" needs the instruments.
2. Sex Pistols - Anarchy in the UK
Rewrote the rule book, whether or not you liked it.
3. New Order - Blue Monday
It seems so strange that there was just over 6 years between "Anarchy in the UK" and this.
4. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath (the song)
Music as something scary and dark. Did this have any precedent? in 1969?

Maybe not the first use of plunger, but the beginning of texture trumping melody, something only really possible with recorded music.
