If David Chase Was Silly
Instead of "Don't Stop Believin'" on that diner's jukebox, Tony could have selected "Woke Up This Morning" by Alabama 3. Heck, their US nickname is A3. That's a jukebox button right there. Or how about a nod to another band who benefited greatly by having a song chosen to lead in another hit television program? Tony selecting "I'll Be There For You" by the Rembrandts would have been funny. Or how about a tribute to Silvio's real life Jersey band partner Bruce Springsteen? Surely, that jukebox had a track or two from that local hero.
Of course, it was Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" and Neal Schon's phone hasn't stopped ringing since. Here's an interview with Neal.
