    Love The Unicorn Song.

    Was Willie’s version of ‘Always On My Mind’ on the last list?

  2. Mary Ann Borke says:

    Only one Elvis song?

  3. Jen Forbus says:

    I think this jukebox is in need of some Roy Orbison. And wasn’t “White Christmas” on the last list? Really? We need two copies in the box?

    To add a little gender variation, I think Jo Dee Massina’s “My Give A Damn’s Busted” would be a good addition. And maybe Reba McEntire’s “Fancy” or “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia.”

    Stairway to Heaven NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Add these and you’re all set:
    Dancin’ in the Moonlight – Thin Lizzy
    The Zoo – Scorpions
    Badlands – Bruce Springsteen
    Stone in Love – Journey

    Always, always wrap it up with some sort of tune everyone knows but NEVER Piano Man or anything by Elton John that is played on the radio. You have to play something like Motown or Stevie Wonder, they get everyone in the mood to keep drinking for another hour.

  5. Brendan says:

    Per Wikipedia, an always trustworthy site:

    “Thin Lizzy’s 1977 UK single release – “Dancin’ In The Moonlight (It’s Caught Me In Its Spotlight)” should not be confused with the King Harvest song, as it is a completely different track.”

    I had no idea.

  6. Vinnie says:

    Prince – Erotic City

  7. Paula Matter says:

    Forgive me…I’ve been on a Country kick lately, so…

    You Don’t Have To Go Home by Gretchen Wilson which brings us to

    Redneck Woman by Gretchen Wilson

    Beer is Great, God is Good, and People Are Crazy by somebody
