It is multimedia topic, could not find a better place to ask.
Downloaded some music in mp4 format. While playing, pictures are showing, one of them is some “monster gramophone”.
So I send here the picture, where can I find how such thing works. I am just curious.
Answers will be appreciated.
“Daddy, Daddy, the jukebox has ‘Ballad of Davy Crockett’, can I have a nickel for ‘Ballad of Davy Crockett’, please, Daddy, please…”
Is that the one that goes:
Oh the Yellow Rose of Texas and the Man from Laramie
They went to Davy Crockett’s to have a cup of tea
The tea was so delicious they had another cup
And left poor Davy Crockett to do the washing up.
I haven’t sung that since I was knee-high to a grasshopper over 60 years ago.
I wonder if the author of this little ditty was aware that the Crocketts were innkeepers by trade?
I doubt it. I read it was a schoolyard song originating in Cheshire UK in the 1950s (about 50 miles from where I lived at the time). It is sung to the tune of “The Yellow Rose of Texas”.
The only song I remember playing in a jukebox was “Heart of Glass” by Blondie.
By the way, check out the editing in that video.
