    OK, good question. I'll kick off with a recent visit to the Grove in Leeds. There was a band playing Creedence Clearwater Revival songs. Not just the greatest hits, but some of the more obscure album tracks too. Made my visit to an excllent pub just that little bit more special.

    And I can remember being in the Victoria in Morecambe after work one day in 1982 when a song played on the juke box which was clearly by XTC - their new single Senses Working Overtime, from their forthcoming album English Settlement. They were already one of my favourite bands, and that is among their best albums, but this was the first time I heard the song.

    With all due respect to one of our number,but if I found a pub juke box with Aqualung by Jethro Tull it would certainly get an airing.

    I play it fairly regularly on the Juke box in my local, a band I have seen live nine times.

    Pink Floyd-Dark side of the Moon might get some customers running for the door but I like it.Also anything from the Stone Roses would be brill.

    Can I point out that London Calling is a famous Clash album and single but I know you had all twigged that one. Maybe lesser known is that Komakino was a track by the band Joy Division and I can't tell you anything more about it.
    Going back to the original thread, I liked a lot of Britpop stuff and really like Oasis and the Manics. I don't put money into Jukeboxes any more as I don't understand how they work! Two more recent music moments in pubs were in the E17 Rose & Crown where they played Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Chile and followed it with Zombie by the Cranberries and at a decent volume. The other moment was more recent at the Jolly Crispin in Upper Gornal where the music track included Nights In White Satin by the Moody Blues. It's the mellotron and flute solo that does it for me. I hadn't heard this one for years!

    Thanks for those. Could hardly have missed the first but was unaware of the second.

    I've mostly walked out of pubs where someone plays that song on the juke box - life is just too short, isn't it? Moody Blues come a close second to Frank Sinatra for "must avoid" as far as I'm concerned. "I managed to negotiate a temporary cessation in the assault on my ears by Frank Sinatra - apparently the juke box had been set to "easy listening" by head office diktat. I pointed out that to some of us there's nothing easy about listening to Old Blue Eyes - a few people have trouble eating Marmite, too"

    Now, that old review reminds me of my favourite tracks by Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones [Simple Twist of Fate and Gimme Shelter]. I first heard the latter on 31 December 1969, the first time I stayed up to see in the New Year.

    I've just been reminded that in a fit of geekiness arising from a beer-induced challenge I managed to work all the canonical Jethro Tull album titles into reviews on here in order during March and April 2017. 'A' and 'This Was' were easy but some of the others needed a bit of word-smithing. Not as magnificent as the Quinno challenge, but ti kept me amused for a while.
