JUKEBOX SERANADE


Hubby and I went to lunch today at Mel's The Original.
This is a franchaise of the Original Mel's of American Graffitti fame which is located in San Francisco.
The Jukebox plays non-stop 50's records. I guess I enjoy it because its my era.
To enlarge just click on the photo.

Even it's not my era, I love listening 50's songs. They were everlasting songs :)

Sue, Love the photo--is also is my era! I would love to bestow upon you The Schmooze Award which reads: The 'Power of Schmooze Award' is The Award for bloggers who “effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship". The icon is on my blog, if you care to accept and use it. Normally you then bestow the award on 5 different people. But, it isn't necessary. Have fun!

Sue: I remember the songs of the late 50s, classics in my opinion! And being played on a juke box... great stuff. They don't have juke boxes in cafes any more do they... not like to good old days!

the 50's were the best, weren't they. I love that juke box. It brings back so many memories.

It is not my era, but I love that music, too. My iPod is full of 50s music, especially the doo-wop songs ("In the still of the night, I held you, Held you tight ...").

Great songs sung that you could (gasp!) actually understand the words ("See the pyramids along the Nile, watch the sunrise on a tropic isle ...").

Those are the classics.

we had one back in NC with the black&white checkered floors, metallic stools at the counter and a jukebox, too. even though it wasn't my era, it is nostalgic for me.....like going back in time.

Hi Sue!
How are you doing? Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend. I LOVE Mel's Diner. Something about the jukebox and down-home America feel just makes for a darn good time. :-)
