TouchTunes? More Like BUTT-chTunes

I think TouchTunes is the worst thing to ever happen to jukeboxes.

In a very narrow way--that is, sheer breadth of song selection--it could be considered an improvement, but to me, in this AND every other way, it is so, so, so much more terrible. Specifically I'd reference the price, individuality of venue/selection thereof, overall physical aesthetic, access from mobile device application, and more.

Plus, they don't have Dionne Farris's "I Know" or Weird Al's "I Want A New Duck" (or a variety of other relatively well-known tunes) on those dumb things. And no matter how many times you play a certain song at a given location, they never add it to that location's "favorites" or whatever.

It seems really strange to me how quick everyplace was to adopt these things. You can scarcely go to a place with a jukebox that plays CDs or (especially) vinyl anymore.
