Transit Tunes: Six Songs to Celebrate Trains

by Rosalie Murphy

June 2, 2013

I wish I took more trains. I know it's faster to fly or cheaper to drive, but I really like that any mood is appropriate on a train—you can miss the place you're leaving and anticipate your destination in equal parts. That's what these songs do, too.

Jon Foreman, "Southbound Train"

[

Gladys Knight and the Pips, "Midnight Train to Georgia"

[

Cat Stevens, "Peace Train"

[

Imogen Heap, "First Train Home"

[

Duke Ellington, "Take the A-Train"

[

Bruce Springsteen, "Land of Hope and Dreams"
