In their celebration of the Tube’s 150th anniversary, the Guardian is putting together a playlist of songs which are loosely about the London Underground. Ideally, their goal is to feature a song for each of the 270 station stops – and we find that even such unlikely station names as Whetstone are mentioned in songs! The creativity is wonderful!
The Guardian has created a Spotify playlist where you can listen to the songs that have been added so far. You can even add your own to the playlist if you think there is one missing.
Here are just a few fun facts about the London Underground that the Guardian shared, as well as a few more provided by Transport for London (TfL):
