Hannah Waldram offers her favourite songs to commute to in today’s guardian online feed, including songs from Joy Division and Edith Piaf (read more | digg story). Why so morose? Surely the morning commute can’t be that depressing?
This prompted me to look into my own on-train listening habits. Save the morning Italian and French podcasts I listen to while waiting for the tram, new albums I have to listen to for writing, and Movies You Should See podcasts I listen to on the train home, my list seems a bit more upbeat, albeit aggressive:
1. Does That Offend You, Yeah? – Let’s Make Out
2. Mindless Self Indulgence – Shut Me Up
3. We Are Scientists – The Great Escape
4. Julie London – Fly Me to the Moon
5. Weezer – Troublemaker
Fairly contemporary, too!
