Top 3 Songs About Poughkeepsie

Did you know there are songs written about Poughkeepsie? I love Pougkeepsie, but if you are recording a song about it you probably are not looking for it to go screaming up the charts to number one.

Hey – there are not a lot of songs about Webetuck. Just thinking about words that rhyme with that eh, sorry. When was the last time anybody recorded a song about Hopewell Junction? See what I mean – just the name Poughkeepsie lends itself to melody.

Here are the Top 3 songs about our beloved city. Number 3 comes from the band Batteries Not Included. This one actually got a bit of radio play back in the early ’90s. See if you remember “Poughkeepsie City of Sin”:

I really kinda like that song. You can tell that they spent lots of time in town. Now on with the countdown. The number 2 song about Poughkeepsie comes from Kirk James Folk. I wouldn’t call this a positive love ballad about our city, but it is catchy. It’s called: “I Ain’t Goin to Poughkeepsie”.  I bet you have never uttered those words.

That’s actually not a bad song. I think I will be playing that one on the show tomorrow. OK- the moment you have been waiting for. Making its way to the NUMBER ONE spot on the songs about Poughkeepsie Countdown – the lyrically challenged “Guy Who Writes Songs about Cities and Towns” with “Poughkeepsie (Very Good City) Wonderful.”
