What’s on in Walford? Jukebox hire in the East End
Jukebox hire probably isn’t at the front of your mind when you’re watching EastEnders, but listen carefully and there’s always a track playing in the Queen Vic.
But what’s on the playlist? Well, it’s easy to find out, particularly if you’re a Spotify user.
That is because the complete Queen Vic Jukebox playlist is available as a Spotify playlist too, which you can view online or in the standalone Spotify program or app.
It’s a lengthy list – 119 tracks at last count – and covers everything from Kate Bush to Cher Lloyd, so there’s something for listeners of all ages.
And it’s essential reading for any publican looking into jukebox hire for their own venue, and keen to keep up with one of the nation’s favourite (if fictitious) establishments.
Picks from the list include Celebration by Madonna, and Making Your Mind Up by Bucks Fizz – it’s not all Paloma Faith and Cher Lloyd, by any means.
But it’s a great beginner’s guide to building a pub jukebox playlist that combines the old and the new, the classics and the latest chart hits, so nobody who takes a look is left with an excuse not to put their money in the slot.
