I don't know if one song or album ignited my love of audio. I've just always liked listening to music from listening to am radio as a kid in the early 60s with a cheap transistor radio and single ear bud to now. Back in the 70s is when I started paying more attention to audio quality. Albums like David Bowie, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, Spirit 12 Dreams of Dr Sardonicus, Led Zeppelin IV, The Beatles, Sgt Pepper and White Album, and George Harrison All Things Must Pass were my go to albums to name a few.
Edit: More recent history had me going toward hi rez stuff with my first SACD player an Oppo-BDP-83. Diana Krall, Patricia Barber, and the RCA living stereo series of Classical SACDs were my first purchases. I also started other hi-rez format downloads of classical and jazz artists as well, particularly recent recordings. There is a notable difference between a high rez playback of something recorded now vs an older album from the 60-70s and 80s. Joni Mitchell Both Sides Now was recorded in DSD and is fantastic.
