American nostalgia

jukebox "Remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were."
~Marcel Proust (1871–1922), French novelist

A gaudy and lovely Rock-Ola jukebox at the American 1950s diner-themed Johnny Rockets in Bonifacio Global City.

These were ubiquitous when I was growing up...and I put many nickels in them! The music was way better back then, too. They actually had lyrics that made sense, weren't dirty, and tunes with which you could sing along!
