Do these sentences have the same meaning?

When I saw that album, you're the first person that came to mind.
When I saw that album, you were the first person that came to mind.

They would be understood in the same way, but the first version seems faulty to me. Use the version with "were".
And while we're on the subject, is there a difference between these sentences:

She is one of the people that got me into this band.
She was one of the people that got me into this band.

There is not a big difference. The first sentence makes the event seem more relevant to the present situation (for example, maybe she is still in the band, or maybe she is present when the statement is made). The second sentence makes the event seem more historical (for example, maybe she is no longer in the band and has disappeared from the scene). These are tendencies, not exact rules.
No I meant which sentence would you use if you were talking about a person who got you interested in a band.

Oh I see. Same answer, with the obvious changes.
