Do you remember the Jukebox days? I sure do. My family owned a campground in Holderness, New Hampshire. It was a fun haven as a kid. I had kids to play with most of the year. A pool. And the recreation room with a jukebox filled with the hottest 45s of the 1970s.
There was nothing more thrilling than playing a Jukebox. The dropping of your quarter in. The searching for that perfect song. Making sure you pushed the right numbers. The soft neon glow. The cha-chang as the records rotated and your choice was selected. All that anticipation leading up to your song.
When we moved I took my favorite records with me. But I sure missed that jukebox. My favorite songs back in 1978? I Really Want to See You Tonight by England Dan. The Pina Colada Song by Rupert Holmes. Bluer than Bluer by Michael Johnson. The Doo Run Run by Shaun Cassidy.
What were your favorite jukebox songs? Did you want to be a jukebox hero with stars in your eyes?
