Jeff's Jukebox: B-6
Leaving P.J. Harvey, let's take a little trip across the universe, and end up at Tammy Wynette.
B-6: "Stand By Your Man," Tammy Wynette
So far, country has yet to be represented in the jukebox, and it would be criminal to leave this song out.
The best jukebox I can remember was at Manuel's in Berkeley, which was one of our regular Thursday night hangouts. The breadth of songs in the box was pretty amazing - it had everything from this song to classic Otis Redding, to "Holiday in Cambodia" by the Dead Kennedys. We always tried to end the evening with this one - singing along, of course.
