More Useful Stuff
The jukebox can be the best or worst thing in a bar, depending on who picks the songs (and how drunk they are).
So use it wisely. I asked a few barmen what they wish their customers would consider before hitting “play”.
1 Surprise us
We don’t need to hear “Bohemian Rhapsody” any-more. Great song, but overdone. Be original.
2 Check the clock
Right songs for the right times. If the crowd’s mellow, no metal. And if the bar is in full party mode, don’t drop a ballad on them.
3 Tip with tunes
Ask the bartender if he has a favourite song, and then play it. You might get a free drink or shot.
