I'm looking to compile a play list of songs not necessarlily about trains, but have train sound effects in them. I know I posted something along these lines years ago (can you believe it?--years?)!! I don't remember much of a list! So I'm trying again!


Songs I have already:

"Choo Choo", "Farwell Blues (Abe Lyman), "Daybreak Express" (Ellington), "Beyond the Blue Horizon" (Olsen), "My Cuties Due At Two To Two Today" (Weems), "Flag That Train To Alabam", (Hamm)...

any more?!

Any song that has a "Clickity-clack drums", "whistles", or just great creative arranging... all that create the feeling of being on a train...

Thanks!

Do you remember Aaron's great Musical Trains on YouTube? It has the Jones and Hare version of Cutey's Due.

Ted Lewis Heading For Better Times http://www.jazz-on-line.com/a/rama/COLW151196-4.ram

Then there is Hello Swanee Hello, Fred Waring http://www.jazz-on-line.com/a/ramr/RiVic20467.ram

If you were born in the UK during the 30s or 40s, maybe even later, then you would have heard a record by Reginald Gardiner played on the BBC a lot, a novelty record called 'Trains'.

On side 2 he describes what happens when the train goes through the tunnel into Snowhill station in Birmingham. This is absolutely true, this used to occur even during the 50s when I used Snowhill a lot.

I think he also recorded an 'Americanised' version of this monologue.

I'm not generally a Louis Armstrong fan... but this rocks!! A little of his style of singing goes a long way!!! His band lacks form to me... Henderson, Ellington have a ballance and a formula that to me is just better arranging... Armstrong just goes along with the same beat and rhythm the whole way through.


I never heard this one! Thanks!

This song embodies what I'm really looking for! Makes you want to get on that train, all the way to the end of the line!

There's a reason for this. Henderson had a dance band. He played a the Roseland Ballroom in New York for years. Ellington's band was a tool for his composing and arranging. It was in effect his instrument.

Armstrong on the other hand was the greatest soloist in jazz at the time. His band was there for just one reason: To back him up.

I can see that! The trumpet playing is dynamite! Wouldn't it be neat if they could have all got together?!! Maybe they did?!

I know you indicated you had Choo-Choo already, but do you have it from all of these various bands?
