Top 20 Jukebox Hits of All Time


So this mix has been a long, long time coming. I started thinking about it when I made my karaoke mix. What is the difference between a great karaoke song and a great jukebox song? Many times it is nothing at all. I think, for me, the main distinction is that a jukebox song comes on in a bar and everyone does one of two things: instantly starts bobbing their heads and singing along, or instantly looks puzzled- wondering why they can’t place the song till the chorus- and then start bobbing their heads and singing along.

So after surveying practically everyone I know, including many of my fellow poptenners, I present to you the top 20 greatest jukebox songs of all time. Prove me wrong.
