North New Jersey's Got Em'

Strange names, that is.

You can't argue with Steve Forbert on that. And yes, I say that fully aware that I live in a town called Snoqualmie.

Now, I don't know who Steve Forbert is, but his song "Strange Names (North New Jersey's Got Em')" just came onto my Yahoo Launchcast player and it's pretty catchy and, if you are from the Garden State, it's a must-listen. It's off his new album Strange Names & New Sensations which just released a couple weeks ago. I'm going to have to listen to his other stuff, but the reviews are positive.

Here's the link to it on iTunes if you want to hear a sample or download it for $0.99.

Check out the video for this classic song (haha) on youtube.

Thanks for that link Erica. The more I listen to it, the more I'm convinced he's trying to do an Adam Sandler impersonation when he's singing. In fact, at first I thought it was an old Sandler song and now I can't get that thought out of my head.

Especially the way he says "Rockaway" totally sounds like Sandler.
