People really love the tube. Maybe not so much at rush hour while crammed nose to shoulder blade with what feels like most of the population of Zone 2, but there's still enough affection to inspire some original songs about the Underground*. Here are three we dug up while a bit bored one evening.
The stations of Zone 1
Joe Moëd has shoehorned all the tube stations in central London into the tune of the Mexican Hat Dance.
Every tube station
Jay Foreman, of course, scoffs at the idea of stopping at Zone 1. He's written a song covering all 270 stations. Beat that.
The Northern line
This is about six years old and, judging by the comments, ended up in The Metro, after which several people swung by to hate it (comments now removed). They're fools: this sweet little song about people actually talking on the tube is rather lovely. And we love the video's concept of traversing the Northern line above ground.
*We're aware there are some other songs, some very sweary songs, about how awful the Underground and everyone who works for it is. Kind of brought down the vibe though.
