Since we're all waiting longer for buses and trains, I figured we could help while away the extra wait time by humming/singing/dancing to transit songs. So I've compiled a few classics here from YouTube. First, here's a sample of Busking by Aloe Blacc, who cajoles the bus with his "C'mon bus... I've been waitin' for such a long time." And thanks to @thisisnina for the tip.
The Hollies think love can grow as you wait for the bus -- under an umbrella no less.
The Who's Roger Daltrey just wants to take the bus to see his girl friend -- and he even asks the driver if he can buy the bus. Maybe we can ask The Who to help with that $96 million budget deficit?
See the continuation for some songs about trains. I sure hope you guessed the O'Jay's Love Train would be up first. It's not necessarily about commuting on trains, but it sure has a catchy beat. Perhaps this song inspired the Love Train motorman from years back? Anyone heard from him, or is he retired?
Cat Stevens, aka Yusuf Islam, wrote Peace Train while on a train, thinking about Alfred Hitchcock.
For all you moms and dads who also love Roger Daltrey, I offer you this classic gem.
Finally, there's last year's local favorite by the Snow Angels. This is good stuff.
OK, that's just a feeble start. What did I miss?
