    Why are there so many good railroad and train songs?

    This one's a haunting little tune from a splendid English folk singer called Vashti Bunyan. She released it in 1966, along with a handful of other songs, and it took people nearly 30 years - and a Reebok commercial - to understand how astonishingly good they were.
    By the way, it's a truly amazing, sweet and melancholy song. More recently Feist and Ben Gibbard made a great rendition of it, turning it into a duet, and that's where we mostly took our inspiration.

    Let me introduce to you my pals and colleagues:

    on keybords and finely-crafted thirds, my buddy Mark "Goldie" Lox

    first voice and charming hand gestures, the beautiful Biggie M.

    and our little friend Fred, the alcoholic hippo - you can see him near the two bottles of vodka.

    I'm proudly playing a MahiMahi 77g tenor.

    And finally, let me have one last toast (vodka, of course) to my friend and co-singer Biggie, wishing her the best of luck on her adventures in the Australian continent. Please come back rich and famous, and may the road rise with you. Show less
