No we're not kidding. A guy sat down and wrote 88 songs about New Jersey towns, including Vernon and Jefferson. Matt Farley, aka The Guy Who Sings Songs About Cities & Towns, has spent the last decade writing and releasing 19,000 songs about random topics. Two years ago he even got to perform one of his songs on Jimmy Fallon.
Farley's released dozens of albums but they're all under different names. According to his website, each name corresponds with the topics he sings about.
The Hungry Food Band does songs about food; Papa Razzi and the Photogs sing about celebrities; The Singing Animal Lover sings about animals; The Guy Who Sings Your Name Over and Over sings people's first names over and over; and so on.
His eccentric songs may not have made him a millionaire, but Farley is getting some return on his investment. In an interview with Substream Magazine he mentioned that he's earning between $3,000 and $4,000 a month from streaming.
On "Vernon Township (New Jersey)" Farley calls Vernon "a good little township" with "very good people." He even name drops Mountain Creek, Hidden Valley and Highland Lakes. Meanwhile, on "Jefferson Township (Morris County, NJ)" he sings that "they've got so much going on" and mentions Jefferson Day.
