Music for 1/15/21 New Jersey

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Real Estate Inc 610-225-7400 PA License - AB067198

You know a state is musical when you find this information about the state song.

AN ACT designating five State songs and supplementing chapter 9A of Title 52 of the Revised Statutes. SENATE, No. 2438 / STATE OF NEW JERSEY / 216th LEGISLATURE / INTRODUCED OCTOBER 9, 2014 1. The State songs shall be the words and music of the following:

a. “I’m From New Jersey,” by Red Mascara, shall be designated as the State Song.

b. “New Jersey My Home,” by Patrick Finley, shall be designated as the State Anthem.

c. “In New Jersey,” with lyrics inspired by the former 4th grade class of Alexandra “Sandy” Vitale at the Van Holten School in Bridgewater, and music by Terre McPheeters, shall be designated as the State Children’s Song.

d. “New Jersey, U.S.A.,” by Nelson Trout, shall be designated as the State Ballad.

e. “Be Proud To Be in New Jersey,” by Mark Winter and Ellen Winter, shall be designated as the State Popular Song.

This is D by Nelson Trout

Here is the state popular song

Here is My Home New Jersey, not a state song, this is by Paul Czekaj

Of course we cannot have New Jersey with out Bruce Springsteen, singing New Jersey Girl,

And because I will [probably never hear the end of it from Rocky Dickerson here is another from Bruce, State Trooper - New Jersey Turnpike

I like this celebration of New Jersey Musicians Sounds Like New Jersey that should cover everyone Rocky Dickerson 

Have a wonderful day.

How interesting was this, Nick! I commuted to NJ from 1976 till 1989 from NYC. I spent summers in Ocean City, NJ. And knew none of this.

Wow, I never knew that New Jersey was that much of a musical state.  I often think of Tennessee being a musical state because of the Grand Ole Opry.

Good morning Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 yes, what a great musical state. I will include this one as well as I am wondering if that might be you posing as the lead singer in a couple shots here.

Nina Hollander as I have prepared these posts this was the most amazing to me with so many songs listed.

Brian England I am beginning to believe all our states are pretty musical, some just more so than others.

Wayne Martin what is amazing is hoe every state has people who love music and are so creative as well.

Rocky Dickerson you got me laughing, I knew you would have some video to post for new jersey.

Roy Kelley thank you. Stay safe.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I found this a fun post, with so much choice.

Will Hamm definitely a state with lots of musical roots for so many artists.

Kathy Streib glad you are enjoying it so much.

James Dray come back and try it again, I am sure it will work.

I would think that the Jersey Boys would somehow be in that mix or Bruce Springsteen!
