Song About Cities: Public Transit Tunes

Leave a comment

A while back, I posted a collection of five top-notch songs about a city. That time it was Chicago. This time, to brighten your Friday, I’m offering some of my favorite tunes about riding the bus or the train.

  1. On the topic of public transit, there is perhaps no more fitting tune than “Joe Metro” by the Seattle-based hip-hop group, Blue Scholars.
  2. Back Up Train” by Al Green
  3. School Bus Driver” by a hometown favorite, Trampled by Turtles
  4. The Train Pt. 2 (Sir Lucious Leftfoot Saves the Day)” by Big Boi. And if that title doesn’t make you want to listen, then I don’t know what will. 
  5. Trains & Buses” by Frank Hamilton
