So back in the late 80s I had an uncle who owned a dive bar in a small town near where I grew up. Every so often the family would go up there and spend an afternoon watching football and the kids would have fun playing shuffleboard & darts.
Anyways, there was a jukebox in the place, and I generally hated it. Was all old country & western music that I hated as a kid of the 80s(but I'm sure it catered well to his geriatric alcoholic clientel)
One weekend my cousins and I are up there with our parents and we decide to look over the jukebox just for the hell of it, well to my surprise it had the song quoted above, Wishing Well, and also had George Michael's "Monkey" for whatever weirdass reason. Was like 1 record that was in the machine, side A and side B were those 2 songs. My cousins and I threw a whole goddamn roll of quarter in that juke box and played those 2 songs alternatingly about 20 times apiece.
After about 4 turns of each, my uncle comes over and yanks the power plug out of the wall, lol. He was pissed. Those songs were not in there anymore the next time we visited
I actually REALLY liked some of the country of the 80s. I think some of the best things about the 80s music is that most of it (obviously not all of it, but most) was about happiness, pleasure, love, support, etc. There was very little hate in music in the 80s, unlike today. It might be very fond memories of me and my dad driving to galveston from houston listening to country on the way when I was like 7-8 years old.
I'm sure most this board hates country but really there were some good ones then. I'll only put one
