Best Generic jukebox New York 2001 - Cedar Tavern - CLOSED
Feeding coins into CEDAR TAVERN's upstairs jukebox is the musical equivalent of playing sports: The overarching narrative is always the same, even as the details change. To wit: You may regard "Buffalo Soldier" (or "Heart of Glass," or "Going Mobile") as a home run. Naturally, about half of the drunken crowd agrees. There is a common bond thusly formed, although it could not exist without its opposition, Those Who Do Not Like Bob Marley. As if such an opposition were relevant in any way to Legend-soaked reality; as if it was not in essence arbitrary and ultimately meaningless. You can run, but you'll always come back home.
