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.
- 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.
- “Back Up Train” by Al Green
- “School Bus Driver” by a hometown favorite, Trampled by Turtles.
- “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.
- “Trains & Buses” by Frank Hamilton
