Thursday’s tunes

Here’s what I’ve played so far at Buffalo Wild Wings. I’ll update it periodically.

1. Sunset Grill–Don Henley (1985)

2. Major Tom–Peter Schilling (1983)

3. Night Moves–Bob Seger (1977)

4. Day Tripper–The Beatles (1965)

5. Abracadabra–Steve Miller (1982)

6. She’s a Lady–Tom Jones (1971)

7. Sultans of Swing–Dire Straits (1979)

8. You Can’t Hurry Love–Phil Collins (1982)

9. Chase–Giorgio Moroder (1978) 

*–instrumental from Midnight Express

10. Billie Jean–Michael Jackson

11. Need You Tonight–INXS

(Someone named Zac put in money and played a Rihanna song for about the 10th time in the last three days. I cannot stand Rihanna. Not only do I not like her singing, she is simply stupid for allowing herself to get beaten senselessly by Chris Brown.)

12. Kyrie-Mister Mister (1985)

13. Dixieland Delight–Alabama (1983)

14. Take a Chance on Me–ABBA (1978)

15. Borderline–Madonna (1983)

16. Love Will Turn You Around–Kenny Rogers (1983)

17. Cracklin’ Rosie–Neil Diamond (1970)

18. Love is Strong–The Rolling Stones (1993)

19. More Today Than Yesterday–Spiral Staircase (1969)

20. La Bamba–Los Lobos (1987)

21. Runaround Sue–Dion (1961)

22. Mr. Blue Sky–Electric Light Orchestra (1978)

23. Caught Up In You–.38 Special (1982)

24. Lowdown–Boz Scaggs (1976)

25. Pop Muzik–M (1979)

26. Allentown–Billy Joel (1983)

27. Somebody’s Baby–Jackson Browne (1982)

*–from the Fast Times at Ridgemont High soundtrack

28. Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2–Pink Floyd (1980)

29.Green Onions–Booker T. & the MGs (1962)

30. Philadelphia Freedom–Elton John (1975)

*–the song was not about the U.S. Bicentennial. It was about the Philadelphia Freedoms of World Team Tennis, which was coached and captained by Billie Jean King. 

31. You’re the One That I Want–Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta (1978)

*–from the Grease soundtrack. I played it because there was just a trivia question about it.

32. Burnin’ For You–Blue Oyster Cult (1981)

33. That Smell–Lynyrd Skynyrd (1977)

*–the album this song was part of, Street Survivors, was released two days prior to the tragic plane crash in the Mississippi forest which killed lead singer Ronnie Van Zant and four others. 

Now I find out the jukebox is not connected to the network, meaning if I want to play music, I’ll have to get up and put the money in myself instead of just playing songs from my phone. GREAT. 

Update, 2:25 p.m.–the jukebox is back online. I’m back in business.

34. Everything She Wants–WHAM! (1984)

*–I always play the long version with the added bridge. The original album cut is about 90 seconds shorter. 

35. A Horse With No Name–America (1972)

*–the song was banned by WHB-AM in Kansas City, since “horse” is slang for heroin, and the WHB management felt this was a song glorifying heroin use. The heat was hot! 

36. Turn Me Loose–Loverboy (1981)

(In between these songs, some nincompoop put money in the jukebox to play that stupid Rihanna song again. ENOUGH. It seems like that one song gets played multiple times in one day. I’m the only person who plays a variety.)

37. And the Beat Goes On–The Whispers (1980)

38. Spirits in the Material World–The Police (1981)

39. Is This Love?–Whitesnake (1987)

40. Heaven is a Place On Earth–Belinda Carlisle (1987)

41. Love You Inside Out–Bee Gees (1979)

*–last #1 for the Bee Gees in the US. My favorite Bee Gees song. 

42. I Can’t Tell You Why–The Eagles (1980)

*–only Eagles song featuring Timothy Schmitt on lead vocals. Also my favorite Eagles song. 

43. The Look–Roxette (1989)

44. Express Yourself–Madonna (1989)

*–the bad version of this song started playing. I had to play the good version. 

45. What Have I Done To Deserve This–Dusty Springfield featuring Pet Shop Boys (1987)

46. Along Comes A Woman–Chicago (1985)

47. Fallin’ For You–Colbie Calliat (2009)

48. Down Under–Men at Work (1982)

49. You Belong to the City–Glenn Frey (1982)

50. Two Hearts–Phil Collins (1988)

51. Find–Jimmy Buffett (1979)

52. Gimme Some Lovin’–Spencer Davis Group (1967)
