Bruce Springsteen isn’t the only Jersey Shore songwriterto find inspiration inthe Garden State Parkway. Here’s another, far lighter-toned salute from along-lived club band, Belmar’sHolme.

“Garden State Parkway Boogie” iskind of like a cross between ZZ Top and Little Feat; it might not be timeless rock ‘n’ roll, but is definitely good, upbeat driving music.

New Jersey celebratedits 350th birthday lastyear. And in the 350 Jersey Songs series, we are markingthe occasion by posting 350 songs — one a day, for almost a year — that have something to do with the state, its musical history, or both. We started in September 2014, and will keep going until late in the summer.
