Since people are revealing themes, mine is going to be Springsteen-adjacent songs including the Boss, covers, fellow travelers, influences and influencees.

Don't forget EATC!

It's a guideline not an law :shrug:

 

A friend of mine frequented a bar in Baltimore that had a CD jukebox. One of the CDs in it was Phish’s A Live One. When the bar was getting too crowded for his liking, my friend would select Tweezer, which is 35 minutes long, to clear some people out.

We do something similar that we call "The Frankie Teardrop Treatment."  Frankie Teardrop isn't as long as that one (about 11 minutes), but it's mostly silence and screaming, so usually does the trick, particularly when combined with another 10+-minute song like Marquee Moon.

Heads up- my first pick may be a snipe!

Snipe away. I can already tell I am going to have a hard time narrowing all of this down.

If I go local theme I pretty much hope that Jeff ament did some stuff way back when and that Phil Jackson guested on a shaq-foo cut

I might be movin' to Montana soon
Just to raise me up a crop of Dental Floss
Raising it up
Waxing it down
In a little white box
I can sell uptown

let's do a "the most pretentiousness" contest.

we've got a couple of John Wooden trophy winners around here ...it's no contest.

I spent four great years in Walla Walla for undergrad in the late 80s.  
 

Pretty cool town now but really more known for their wine than their music. 😂

Getting some of that Bledsoe Doubleback wine? (I think that's what it's called)

I've been working on my own jukebox... or playlist at least for a weekend at the cottage with a bunch of beer drinking buddies. 

Basically we have a 90s grunge guy, a 00s indie/folk guy, a heavy metal/hard rock guy, a 90s pop/rock, alt country guy, a modern hip hop r&b guy and a guy who likes a bit of everything but is older and so skews 80s/90s. 

So far I'm at a 10 hour playlist that is a combination of cottage favourites (Tom Petty, Tragically Hip) grunge hits, poprock (collective soul, counting Crows), big rock songs from the last 20 years (MGMT, Portugal the Man), folk/soul inspired newer acts (Nathaniel Rateliff, Jason Isbell etc..), all mixed in with bands I like that blend well (Spoon, Hold Steady, Kings of Leon.

I've probably put way too much thought into this, constantly adding, moving and dropping songs and we're still two weekends away. Does anyone else do this?

And the modern r&b guy is getting left out in the cold aside from a couple of the big new songs by The Weeknd and Billie Eilish.
