People liked having a little choice and hitting the letters and numbers on a JukeBox. The visuals of the jukebox were also mesmerizing. Watching your record get moved over and be played was super satisfying. A jukebox was much better than a "playlist" . Seeing the song name and artist printed so simply in a simple text also had some simple aesthetics that just felt right.
I think it would be a cool feature for bars too.
