1. Anything by Waylon, Willie, or any combination thereof.
2. Anything by Hank Sr and/or Jr.
3. Anything by Lynerd Skynerd, Marshall Tucker, Pure Prairie League, The Band, and/or The Allman Bros.
4. (for the youngsters)Anything by Kid Rock, Gretchen Wilson, Tartanic, and/or Wolfstone.
5. Let's try a little Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, some Cream, some Hendrix, and some Janis Joplin!
I realize I cheated, but sooooo much good music, so little time!

"Sleepwalk" -- Santo and Johnny


Sleepwalk was a close runner up on my list too. Definitely a must-have choice for any self respecting juke box.
Gotta have some instrumentals ... Apache and Walk Don't Run too.


Sonny, I have "Let there be Drums and Teen Beat"Sandy Nelson


That's some serious drumming.
Teen Beat definitely reminds me of Apache by The Shadows.

Speaking of Sandy Nelson, he did a cover of Hawaiian War Chant ... but my favorite version of that song is Spike Jones version.
Just for posterior's sake, here's a listen to Spike Jones' Hawaiian War Chant ...
(from barnesandnoble.com ... amazon's clip just has the intro) ...

Um ... is having Spike Jones on the jukebox considered a choking hazard?

One for Lleechef-

North to Alaska Johnny Horton (I think)

Add a few Beach Boys for a balanced program

And some Ray Stevens "Ahab, the Arab" or "The Streak"

If you want to drop back a few more years How about some Stan Friberg "Yellow Rose of Texas" or "Saint George and the Dragonet"

I think the Les Paul and Mary Ford fans are coming close to time to turn in their driver's license, so I would be willing to withdraw my recommendations for them....unless your local population demands them.

I was thinking perhaps Johnny Ray"s "The Little White Cloud That Cried" might get the Crowd humming,or maybe "The Shrimp Boats Are Coming",might help me "To Tally Me My Bananas"

Got that one Kayleigh.
I own about 15 TJB albums. I really like that sound.
That song I mentioned above, "Mae" is really a great, romantic, sultry number ... candy for the ears.
I've been listening to quite a bit of it recently ... All my Herb Alpert stuff is on vinyl and I just finally picked up a replacement belt for my Marantz 2270 which has been out of commission since before Christmas.

Lots of good selections Kayleigh :-)

"Stranger on the Shore" is also one of my all time favorites ... I liked the song so much I actually went and bought a clarinet with the intention of learning to play just that song.

There really is a song called "Greasy Pork Pete" by a blues guy named Hashbrown. Greasy Pork Pete, he loves to eat, loves to eat that BBQ meat.

When I was in college,i went to a Dionne Warwick concert,the opening act,was a group of older Black gentlemen,that sang a song titled,"Hooraah,Hoaraah,These Women Are Killing Me",greatest lyrics and beat i've ever heard.People were dancing in the aisles.Give anything to have that on a 45!

This is kind of OT as far as oldies and country ... plz accept my apologies in advance ...

There's an awful lot of music I'd like to see on Juke boxes.
I have pretty broad tastes in music ... J.S. Bach, Gregorian, New Age and Hearts of Space stuff, old blues (eg. Blues Before Sunrise on npr), all types of rock, techno, world, classic soul, polka ... everything from Puccini's Nessun d'Orma to Wiseguy's "Start the Commotion" ... Andrea Bocelli to Ravi Shankar to Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

One category of music I've been interested in is popular music used in advertising and on TV ... here's a few items to take a listen to that you might recognize from their commercial use on PBS.

I'd love to see them on a Juke box ... but it would have to be in an establishment appropriate to that sort of music.
Oh well, one can hope ...

The Verve: "Bittersweet Symphony" ...
http://www.content.loudeye.com/scripts/hurl.exe?clipid=003282901010006900&cid=600111

and one of my very favorites ...

Coco de mer : "Lakme"
(actually a version of the Flower Duet from the Delibes opera Lakme)
(I'd be interested to know if anyone remembers this specific song)...

Would saying that your taste in music is eclectic, be understating the situation,or do you have Ort on the other line?

Sonny.. Ort. Would be with you and me on this I'm sure. Also I like the clips above. But Hearts of Space on a jukebox? Out of place to me. By the way I played Mae also.Here is another subject..Songs that you always hated but then loved after being in a commercial. My vote would be Tom Jones "Help Yourself" when Regis Philbin and some hotchick were in a H2 drinking umbrella drinks saying they like offroading and the camera pulls back and they are on cruise ship! That changed everthing for me.

Hearts of Space was just the name of the radio show. I do not think that "space music" would go over well in nearly any establishment. That list of examples was just noting that I like a broad range of music ... trying to kinda ease in to the two links I posted.

Let's see. Gotta have some old Alabama tracks. Johnny Cash any era. No one has mentioned Miss Dolly Parton yet. How about "Coat of Many Colors" or "Jolene" Or some of the great cowboy songs like "Streets of Loredo"?

Damon.. I can tell that's somebody I want to hear LIVE so I already checked his tour dates and will do that.Since the Chantays,Marketts,and Shadows et al are probably no more.
Now get back to perfecting your website, it's so close.

How about some Perry Como? If you listen to the entire song, you'll be singing it all day long and probably be craving a hot dog. http://itsadancinghotdogwatchasitrelaxesyourpores.ytmnd.com
