Warning: small amount of immodesty.
Here is just the music without the video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCPnQc1Ek4I

AHHH! My husband had me listen to this song. I would like it, other than the storyline. I'm glad he asked her father for his blessing, but then he went ahead and married her anyway without it. Trouble, trouble, trouble.

edited to add: I'm sorry to jump on the song you posted. I thought it was funny (ironic?) that you posted it because my husband and I were just talking about this song not too long ago.

The storyline is the great part. He didn't actually "marry her anyway," he only fantasizes about marrying her anyway after they run away to another galaxy. The girl is the problematic element in the video, which isn't really present in the song itself, but even in the video they don't actually get married, after the father turns him down 3 times.

This is like a pop song specifically designed for traditional Catholics (or Orthodox Jews). The lead singer is a Canadian of Palestinian descent.

 :lol:  Clearly I'm going to need to listen again. I didn't capture that at all the couple of times I listened to it; so, I'll admit it, that went over my head. I need to look up the lyrics, darnit! (Although I did notice the video alluded to the daughter being a bit problematic).

Yes, Chestertonian, and this may explain why the storyline went over my head. lol.

"The sneakiness of prigs, the conventicle secrecy, gloomy concepts like hell, like sacrifice of the guiltless, like unio mystica in drinking blood; above all, the slowly fanned fire of revenge, of chandala revenge—all that is what became master over Rome."

No, New York is popular and likeable.  Everybody wants to see New York.  That's what makes it cheap.  It's superficial; it's a "cool kid."  New Jersey is the fat stinky greasy kid with bad breath and no date for the prom.  It builds character.

New Jersey is actually a lot like that music video I posted.  New Jersey has a bizarre kind of appeal.  Like halfway through the video when that beautiful girl takes off her shoes and pads barefoot onto the floor and just breaks out into a spaz of wild interpretive dance moves and the band keeps playing nonchalantly as if she isn't even there, like a ghost, and then a flurry of feathers start falling from the ceiling and the lamps go red; there's a kind of elusive and bizarre profundity to it.  A weird artistry.  That's New Jersey, but those who are not from New Jersey can never understand.  Everyone will say, "you're fat and stinky with bad breath and no date for the prom," but the reply is: "you fail.  Failure on you.  It's interpretive dance."  Like Nataraja, the Hindu god who is said to be dancing the universe.  New Jersey is the cosmic dancer.

High demand means that the price is higher.  That is why New Jersey is a cheap imitation. ;)

Is that why all you New Yawkers have been moving over since the 1980's and making our roads less safe since youze don't know how to drive; not to mention turning our beaches into greaseball central every Summer?

You've hit the nail on the head, but you seem not to comprehend the problem.  New York is indeed in high demand.  It's hip.  It's trendy.  New York has it all.  New York is the blond quarterback with the pretty cheerleader on his arm.  New Jersey is the runty kid in the black trenchcoat with the sides of his head shaved listening to the Dead Kennedys on his Walkman.  There's no "imitation" going on here.  Only an appreciable difference.  Everybody likes New York.  Nobody likes New Jersey.  We're okay with that.  We're past caring.  Plus, Roland is right.  You're horrible drivers.  Your driving skills are almost as bad as Pennsylvania's.  Stay off our roads.
