365 Things to Do in Memphis #44: Play a Song on the Lamplighter’s Jukebox

Because when you play a song on the Lamplighter's jukebox, it's impossible to make a bad choice.

Lamplighter juke box, Memphis, Tenn.

Every single song loaded into the ancient jukebox is the perfect song for the Lamplighter. Whether it's "Stormy Weather" or "Paradise By the Dashboard Light", every selection is the perfect atmospheric compliment to a bar that's sort of like drinking in your grandma's basement.

Plus, unlike it's digital counterparts, the Lamplighter's box is cheap (just like the beer) – you can play DJ for $.25 per song.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
