12 great love songs by New Jersey singers and bands
Here you are in a nice romantic mood. Perhaps you've gone to one of the many romantic and unique places in New Jersey to take a date. Perhaps you've gone to one of the many great Jersey bars after having a nice dinner.
Nevertheless, when you're in the mood for love in New Jersey, it would only be fitting that you would put on the music of a great Jersey singer. Johnny Carson once asked Jersey's own Frank Sinatra, who's arguably the king of love songs, "When you're in a romantic mood and you're trying to make out, whose records do you put on?"
Perhaps "Old Blue Eyes" could have answered with these who I got from my Facebook friends...
