Monday Mixtape - Farewell to Jersey

Well, it's time for me to bid farewell to Jersey.  Yes, I am an avid "Jersey Shore" and "Real Housewives of New Jersey" fan, and both of their seasons have come to an end.  No more T-Shirt time, GTL, and shameful displays of public drunkenness.  No more "ingredientses", gold bikinis, and animal-print everything.  It's okay... I'll be alright.  Luckily, I have "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" to ease me through this transition, and those ladies definitely have enough drama going on to make my Monday nights something to look forward to!

Surprisingly, New Jersey has given us a long list of noteable musicians throughout the years:  Frank Sinatra, Dionne Warwick, Connie Francis, The Misfits, Whitney Houston, and, of course, Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen.  Who knew?

And, most recently, Melissa Gorga!  Not necessarily amazing, but this song is totally stuck in my head!
Melissa Gorga - "On Display"

Bon Jovi - "You Give Love A Bad Name"

Bruce Springsteen - "Dancing In The Dark"

Misfits - "Dig Up Her Bones"

Whitney Houston - "I Wanna Dance With Somebody"

Connie Francis - "Who's Sorry Now" - This song reminds me so much of my mom; she had this album and every once in a while we'd pull it out and sing along... I thought my mom had the prettiest voice and should be a professional singer :)

  1. Farewell and good riddance... Teresa has gone mad and self absorbed... I need to "distanded" myself from the craziness called Jersey... it was making me crazy!

    Ahhh... Good ol' Misfits, perfect pick for Halloween... Makes me want to find a good calf burning, hair whipping concert

  2. Lol...calf burning? As in baby cows, or lower leg muscles?
