Dear Bar Jukebox Player,

Hi, how are you today sir or miss? I understand that you have entered money into the jukebox to play some of your favorite songs. That is great, I can't wait to hear what interesting musical taste that you have. I am sure that you are very cultured and if I were to ask you what type of music you like you would tell me that you like "everything, except classical" likely followed by a short fake laugh. That's great. I totally know what you mean. I also understand that you are a big Milwaukee Brewers fan and I think that's great too. Three games last year eh? Not too shabby! I went to my fair share of games last year as well and maybe we should compare our feelings on them at some point. They were great last year, I agree. This sure is a great conversation, but before we go any further I'd like to ask you for a small favor. You see, you just entered money into this jukebox at this bar we are both attending and you are about to make your selections. This should be no problem, but the fact that you put money into the jukebox AND like the Brewers worries me a bit. I am sure that your taste in music is impeccable, but the fact of the matter is I'm worried. I'm worried because Corey Hart's at bat music sucks and I think that you are very likely to play it right now. I know, I understand. I enjoy the way he plays baseball too, but that song is bad. The fact that I just  found the lyrics on a site called Cowboy Lyrics should surmise why. I think we both came to this bar for the same reason to have a good time (and drink away lost feelings) and I just don't see us having a good time while listening to a song about a "God fearin’ hard workin’ combine driver". Surely, there are other ways to celebrate your love for the Brewers while also playing some fun music in this establishment. I think a good place to start would be by not playing that song now or ever.

Anyone with sense

P.S. Do not play Jason Kendall's song either. It gives me nightmares.
