I don’t think I have a story to share with this song. Not all songs need a story, I suppose. It’s a great song. Perhaps that is enough. If I were to write anything here to make this post longer than a Tweet, I guess I would question why any woman would willingly go by the nickname “Juice”. There’s no end to the eyebrow-raising such a decision inspires.
I’m kicking off your weekend with the winner of the coin toss between Juice Newton’s two biggest hits for which she’s universally known. The loser, a great song in its own right, was “Angel of the Morning”. The winner? “Queen of Hearts”, from her 1981 breakout album Juice. Again, why?
