                                       There's a permanent crease in your right and wrong
                                                        There's a midget standing tall,
                                                 And the giant beside him about to fall!
                                                                  Everybody....

  Stonewall Jukebox 411:  In the "Stonewall Era" -- and before and after --
 patrons at clubs and bars got to hear what they wanted to hear by dropping
  a quarter in the jukebox.  "Perennial favorites" at The Stonewall were not
   all in the jukebox at once!  Quantity-wise, it would have been impossible.    
  However, upon request from known patrons to the owners, different songs
    would be put back into the fab Stonewall Jukebox '80' selections regularly.  
  Like the Gay kids, the Mafia boys had an even greater yen for the strong,
 cultural and passionate sounds of Italian-American singers Frank Sinatra
  (#1 male) and Connie Francis (#1 female) and a real affinity for anything
                                          by the talented, sultry and good-looking white girl group The Shangri-Las!

"Where The Boys Are"
a.k.a. "Gay National Anthem"
-- the closing song at The Stonewall Club every night!
by Miss Connie Francis

Where the Boys are, someone waits for me.
A smilin' face, a warm embrace,
Two arms to hold me tenderly.

Where the Boys are, my true love will be.
He's walkin' down... some street in town
And I know He's lookin' there for me!

In the crowd of a million people,
I'll find my Valentine.
And then I'll climb to the highest church steeple
and teIl the world He's mine!

Till He holds me, I'll wait impatiently.
Where the Boys are, where the Boys are;
Where the Boys are, someone waits for me!

Tilllllll... He holds me, I'll wait... impatiently.
Where the Boys are... where the Boys are;
Where the Boys are... someone... waits... for... me!








"I Know A Place"
-- dedicated to The Stonewall Club
by Petula Clark

Every day when the work is behind you
And the shop and the store put the lock on the door
Just get away where your worries won't find you
If you like, well... I'll tell you more!

Don't let the day get the better of you
When the evening comes, there's so much to do
You better put on your best and wear a smile
Just come along with me awhile!

'Cause I tell you, I know a place
Where the music is fine
And the lights are always low
I know a place where we can go!

At the door there's a man who will greet you
Then you go downstairs to some tables and chairs
Soon I'm sure you'll be tappin' your feet
Because the beat is the greatest there!

All around there are girls and Boys,
It's a swingin' place, a cellar full of noise;
It's got an atmosphere of it's own some how,
You gotta come along right now!








"Follow The Boys"
-- The Stonewall Club jukebox's opening song every evening!
by Miss Connie Francis



I'll follow the Boys... wherever They go
I'll follow the Boys... 'cause in my heart I'll know;
I know that somewhere, somewhere along the way
I'll find my love, my own true love, some day!

And there'll be no place too far, no ocean too wide
Wherever He goes, I'll be right by His side;
I'll follow the Boys and wait until the time
Till that Boy that I'm following... is mine!

There'll be no place too far, no ocean too wide
Wherever He goes, I'll be right by His side
So, I'll follow the Boys and wait until the time
Till that ~wonderful~ Boy that I'm following... is... mine!

"Summer of '69"
by Bryan Adams
{excerpted lyrics, 1985}

I got my first real six-string 
Bought it at the five-and-dime 
Played it till my fingers bled 
It was the Summer of '69 

Me and some guys from school 
Had a band and we tried real hard 
Jimmy quit and Jody got married 
I shoulda known we'd never get far 
Oh, when I look back now 
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice 
Yeah - I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life 

Back in the Summer of '69 

Man we were killin' time 
We were young and restless 
We needed to unwind 
I guess nothin' can last forever - forever, no 

And now the times are changin' 
Look at everything that's come and gone 
Sometimes when I play that old six-string 
I think about you, wonder what went wrong 

Standin' on your mama's porch 
You told me it would last forever 
Oh, the way you held my hand 
I knew that it was now or never 
Those were the best days of my life 

Back in the Summer of '69
