Put Another Dime In The Jukebox, Baby

72 Cactus

I’ve played several jukebox songs at bars lately, and I only play from the “discount” list because I can’t in good conscience pay more than $1 per song, which is what the cheap rate is. Some folks even pay $2 so that they can get their song played NEXT, which I feel is incredibly poor manners. Whatever happened to first come, first serve? I guess the rich win that round.

  1. I am not a fan of the new online juke boxes. I know they are more efficient etc but there was just something about watching that 45 drop and waiting for your tune to play. Happy anticipation.

    1. Completely. You can’t even lean against it because it’s just a flat thing against the wall. I’m always surprised by how selfish people are and not assessing the crowd. If it’s 4 p.m. and most of your crowd is over forty, don’t put in 7 cussing rap songs in a row. I always feel best when I put in songs and notice people singing along with them while shooting pool

  2. I get brave enough to actually use the jukebox once I’ve had too much to drink. That being said I may have unintentionally subjected dive bar patrons to a double shot of Atlantic City by the band. I didn’t realize I selected the same song twice. Oops!
