Whom took our L-Train?


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Sometimes the L-Train - to or from Brooklyn - just disappears? Especially when you need it, for example when you're going to see two really good bands playing, let's say at the club "Goodnight Blue Monday". If you're going from Manhattan, and try to get yourself a cab, nine times out of ten the driver refuses to take when he hears where you're going.

Lyrics
Whom took our L-Train?

At 8th Ave. he walked like a star, down in the hole, away from the cars
His ticket had run out, so he filled it with $10, joy, joy, joy, time for the train
He stood at the platform, and others did too, they were all waiting, for the toot-toot-toot
But it never came, nobody said anything, it just never came, it was all gone

Whom took our L-Train, took it away
Whom took our L-Train, for the love of grace

He tried to grab a cab, but oh-no-no-no, going from New York to Brooklyn, is considered a sin, it's like taking a trip from Heaven to a burning Hell, good luck with your trip, you're out of my van, find your own vehicle, buy yourself a horse, that's our infrastructure, so live with it or not

Whom took our L-Train, took it away
Whom took our L-Train, for the love of grace

Train
Another cool diaristic slice of NYC life. I dig the background oohs, and catchy chorus. Excellent dub breakdown interlude. Yeah, man, I'm swaying on the platform, dancing to this.

Missing train...
Impressed that anyone can write a quality song about a train that didn't turn up, Mikki. Cool and quirky. Enjoyed. Regards, Peter.

Mikki
Our closest train station is maybe 300 kilometers away, so I have no train problems However ...... I really like this, especially where it lifts for the chorus.
Great, quirky post with a very nice groove.
Cheers from Oz,

What a great groove this has. Really like the chorus and the awoo's ... groovy bass and cool lyrics and vocals. Definitely a head boppin' tune ... nice jazzy keyboard bit at about 2:35.
I'm glad I dropped in.

Nice one...
Just in passing, that should be "who" in the title, but that does not effect the high quality of this song!
