    Best roaring rhythm guitar sound ever. That Lukather delivers the tune, by golly.

    This mysterious, creative, smacked-out solo has been a touchstone for me for most of my musical life.

    These are the first two songs I remember hearing on the Jukebox (way back in the early 70's when I was, I dunno, 9 or 10.)

    They were also the first two songs (real songs) that had an impact on me. I remember dropping coins in the jukebox to play them over and over again at these two small town Missouri diners my family ate at once a week or so.

    I'd sit, transfixed by the solo of Freebird, or the riff from Money, wondering what could possibly make those sounds. and then the songs would end, I'd get other coin from my mother, and play it again. Over and over and over. For hours.

    My god....the waitresses must have HATED me.....

    I totally agree with the mystery of the music, especially early on. Funny how peeking behind the curtain by necessity removes some of that. I felt some of the same as I went into animation. You have a deeper understanding, but now you know how the magician does it.

    I'll get next tune...

    The thing about juke boxes is (was? I guess they are still around, but not like they used to be) as you traveled around, you got a quick snapshot of the music popular around that area, as well as the ubiquitous hits. Plus there was always that oddball choice there for some reason, like Popcorn, which I remember playing once:



    And you can make everyone listen to your song! ha ha!
