like a pinball in a jukebox

Sometimes I felt like a pinball, whipped through the world by the electrical impulses of the music tracks. Recently, surfing through the internet, I discovered a digital jukebox, featuring all those titles of the sixties, heard during my first lessons in the dance school: For 1960: Save the last dance for me, DriftersAre you lonesome tonight, Elvis – At last, Etta James – Cathys Clown, Everly Brothers – Georgia on my mind, Ray Charles – I’m sorry, Brenda Lee – Only the lonely, Roy Orbison – The Twist, Chubby Checker – Will you love me tomorrow, The Shirelles – Wonderful world, Sam Cooke etc. – nowadays, retired, it’s a pleasure to write from the desktop inmidst a luxury of silence about those teenager experiences …

  1. Dear Frizz!!!
    I am so happy…The nº1 for the 8 of November of 1960 was “Georgia on my mind I am now listening to it…It is one of my favourite songs….I was born just 4 years later…


  2. Those were the days my friend i’d thought would never end ….


  3. The sound of my youth
    And i love this songs now allways like in this time
    And the ladies from this time
    are in the third youth


  4. Every jukebox should come with eye candy! Glad you like upchucky.


  5. i have great memories of juke boxes!


  6. Oh, how I loved ‘Cathy’s Clown’ and anything Elvis, of course. 🙂


  7. These are great tunes! My dad introduced me to that era of music while I was still wearing diapers. For the longest time I thought that was the only type of music that existed. Great music indeed.


  8. I’m a little too young but love the Drifters and Sam Cooke!


  9. Amazing flashback isn’t it?
    Someone sent me that link a while back and it plays in the background whenever I am online 🙂


  10. Lovely jukebox indeed… 🙂 😉

    Music, that’s live… 🙂

    For me it’s hard to say what kind of music is best
    – it all depends on my mood at the time… 😉

    Music are like coffee, the taste it changes during the day… 🙂


  11. and we did the twist ….


  12. Frizz it’s great to have cherished moments of your past to remember. I will certainly remember this November 16 (not the date but the experience) when I personally met Jorge Marin, a Mexican sculptor whose work of art I admire. You can see one of his winged bronze sculptures here


  13. Ah yes, the old pinball machine – being whipped around, not knowing which path will be your next. A metaphor for life sometimes.

    I remember the small jukebox selection devices that used to be at each table in some restaurants, the ones where you could flip through all the music options. I haven’t seen those for a long time.


  14. thank you for:
    “… the old pinball machine –
    being whipped around,
    not knowing which path will be your next.
    ..”A metaphor for life sometimes.


Hearing from you makes my day!
