"A More Perfect Union" - Titus Andronicus: ... There'll be no more counting the cars on the garden state parkway Nor waiting for the Fung Wah bus to carry me to who-knows-where And when I stand tonight, 'neath the lights of the Fenway Will I not yell like hell for the glory of the Newark Bears? 'Cause where I'm going to now, no one can ever hurt me Where the well of human hatred is shallow and dry No, I never wanted to change the world, but I'm looking for a new New Jersey 'Cause tramps like us, baby, we were born to die ...

Rumor is all of Kool and the Gang?s song?s were about JC.

http://www.koolandthegang.com

(sweet web site, "get down" music, click on history)

Hoboken can keep Frank?we got Kool!

***

And let?s not leave out Prince Pauly Paul?The Prince of Chilltown!

(well maybe)

http://www.reverbnation.com/PrincePaulyPaul

Maybe Hoboken can take The Prince off of ours hands.

Who is that Bobby Long character? That's a great song, can't find anything about him on Google.

Anyone know who that olde-timey Jersey City song they play on WFMU from time to time is?
-Lyrics are something like

"I'm going to jersey city that's where I want to be, cause down in jersey city there's a girl waiting for me, I'll wear a new tuxedo, shel'll be wearing a wedding gown, etc. etc."

DJ Street Justice plays it sometimes as well.

A song we were working up back in 1991 about the Great Toxic Fire that almost took out Brooklyn. My neighborhood is a tumorville grotesquely deformed faces in a Coupe de Ville... http://www.nytimes.com/1991/04/11/nyr ... -smoke-across-hudson.html

Operation Ivy "Hoboken". Pre-Rancid, if anyone cares. I've never been able to figure out what this song actually has to do with Hoboken...

Bobby Long "Jersey City" -- a good soul/early r'n'r 45, circa 1960:

http://www.thesoulgirl.com/music/Kev% ... %20Fountainhead%20105.mp3

Edit: sorry, just noticed someone beat me to it on this one. I'm pretty surprised it was on youtube. FYI, the original 45 sounds much better than any online file I've heard, and can be found on eBay for ~$10 if you're patient.

GP - I see you were hep enough to have already listed the Jersey Bounce...


They call it that Jersey bounce
A rhythm that really counts
The temperature always mounts
Whenever they play that Jersey Bounce

It started on Journal Square
And somebody heard it there
He put it right on the air
That tune called the Jersey Bounce

Uptown, gave it new licks
Downtown, added some tricks
No town, make it sound the same
As where it came from

So if you don't feel so hot
Go out to some Jersey spot
And whether you're hep or not
The Jersey bounce'll make you swing

Ounce by ounce
The Jersey Bounce
Puts you right in the swing
That Jersey Bounce
It'll make you swing

Give me that Jersey Bounce.

Oh, but to just dance on steel, the Sky Pulaski way. By the fires of Elizabeth, never cease to amaze. So hats off to the industry's casualties Oh that swamp full of grabbing hands. Pull you under New Amsterdam. Chinese boxes hold their secrets well. How many are there one can never tell. Art class for the bourgeoisies, lab rats for the cat. Real estate moguls, Chump Towers, When the wind blows you can hear the windows go rat a tat rat a tat tat tat. Jimmy Hoffa in the Meadowlands, weighing down that union man. Grab his ankles, stevedores, Oh how those Jets do roar.
