Essential 45rpm Records to Slot Into a Pub Jukebox

I prefer no music in pubs but just for a bit of fun I'm going to have a virtual pub jukebox to which I'll add a track from time-to-time. Listening to the audiobile in some of the boozers on the Isle of Wight whilst on holiday in 2014 convinced me that music in pubs is generally a bad egg because, more often than not, the selections can be infuriating. The Isle of Wight seemed to have a 70's and 80's fixation. I never thought I'd hear Sweet Sensation's "Sad Sweet Dreamer' ever again but, to my horror, it cropped up twice on the island. I wanted to find the cable to the loudspeakers so I could snip them in half. The trouble with mainstream popular music is that there is just a hideous amount of pap, proving that 'People Like What They Know' rather than 'Know What They Like.' So, as publican and the person who inserts the records into this jukebox, I get to put on the tracks I like. Hopefully, at some point you'll be entertained, intrigued, amused or bemused. Just follow any of the links below to read more about the selection and, in many cases, there will be an opportunity to hear the recording.
