We're extremely proud of the Sandbar jukebox, and although everyone might not agree we think it's the best one in town. It's full of music from at least seven decades, and includes favorites like Frank Sinatra, James Taylor, ABBA, Disney tunes, and every Jimmy Buffett song you could dream of.
However. Times changes and people change.
Recently, I got an iTunes email receipt that ratted out the Miley Cyrus fan in the house. I didn't download "Party in the USA," and my dog, although extremely smart, hasn't mastered the computer yet. The only culprit was Dave.
Of course, he quickly used the bar as an excuse. "But you should see them dance!" he exclaimed when I called out his music taste. "Even the boys get up and dance!" he said. And it's always more fun at the Sandbar when the crowd is dancing. Dave's got a special playlist on an iPod that he can kick on whenever the jukebox music just doesn't deliver- and lately, that's been happening a lot.
We've decided it's time for a jukebox overhaul. This has never happened before, and in fact hands have been slapped when they tried to sneak a new CD (looking at you, Scotty Mack). But, we aim to please, and the masses clearly want new music.
Sad to say, Buffett may not make the cut. For some reason, people in a tropical bar just don't want to hear tropical music anymore. We're reviewing jukebox records to see what other songs haven't been played in the last few months, but they probably won't be missed.
As we go through this process, we'd love to hear your suggestions for new music. What songs will make you get up and dance?
