So I've been putting off grading all day. It's now quarter-to-eight and I really ought to at least start. What have I been doing with my time, you may well ask. I have been making a New Jersey mixCD for my ex-roommate.
AND NOW I'M SHARING IT WITH YOU.
I'm calling it New Jersey (only the strong survive)
1. Belle & Sebastian – Jersey’s Where It’s At
2. Naughty By Nature feat. Queen Latifah – Sleepin’ On Jersey
3. Stuckey & Murray – Garden State of Love
4. Bruce Springsteen – Born to Run
5. Bobby Long – Jersey City
6. Dionne Warwick – I Say A Little Prayer
7. Robert Lee – Jersey City
8. Bobby Rydell – Wildwood Days
9. Yo La Tengo – Night Falls on Hoboken
10. Cobra Starship – Being From Jersey Means Never Having To Say Sorry
11. Frank Sinatra – My Way
12. Emma Beaton & Nic Gareiss – Jersey City
13. Erykah Badu feat. everybody – Love Of My Life Worldwide
14. Bon Jovi – It’s My Life
15. Tiffany & Rocco – Jersey Girl
16. Lesley Gore – It’s My Party
17. The B-52’s – Roam
18. Mark Winter & Ellen Winter – Proud To Be In New Jersey
And because it's worth seeing, here is the music video for track #3.
Now, I have a lot of pride in my home state....but some of that is legit criticism. The hair we must own, I'm the first to admit that. But we also gave you ("you" being "the world") Old Blue Eyes and Queen Latifah. So. It evens out.
