HOW THIS WORKS

 

Tutorial

HELLO TO ALL THAT FIND THIS SITE.  IF YOU ARE INTO STRANGE, DIFFERENT AND SOMETIMES KNOWN SONGS, YOU WILL ENJOY ENDLESS HOURS WITH THIS STRANGE COMPILATION OF SONGS, RAILROAD ART AND RAILROAD MISC., (WHICH IS A GATHERING OF VARIOUS MUSIC & NON-MUSICAL  VIDEOS I FOUND INTERESTING (on youtube. ) . 

 

REMINDER

Please take the time NOW to record the links in more than one place so that you can

return often.

(in google type;)

train songs website

(search down until you see "tutorial and real". That is us.

The spark that started all this was the mention of NEWBERRY'S TRAIN SONGS in the song LUCKENBACH TEXAS sung by Waylon Jennings.  There are probably more songs about this mode of travel than any other with automobiles most likely second.  I am now convinced that I will never find all of them but this is a good in-depth start.  A great book that supports this effort is "THE TRAIN KEPT A ROLLIN: HOW THE TRAIN SONG CHANGESD THE FACE OF POPULAR MUSIC" by Spencer Vignes.  This site is best viewed on a computer because of its size, but does work well with a smart phone .(I use earbuds during tv commercials.)

This Free library, FOREVER UNDER CONSTRUCTION, is a compilation of various items found on youtube .  If one can not be found, people add and remove stuff all the time.

To play a song, Click the "Hot Link" when it is there to present a flavor of my interests and I invite you to find others on youtube.

 

EXAMPLE

TRAIN SONG TRIBUTE  MATTHEW MATERICK  3:40

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFR1KgnGtLY

 

Some of the titles may no longer work because they have been pulled from youtube and some duplicates do appear because of slightly different youtube titles.  (Actually duplicates are more common than I previously thought but I leave them because a few are of a different arrangement or tempo.  Probably near 40%).  There may also be songs that might appear as not in the best category but they still take you back to another time.  There are also hundreds of additional train songs out there that I did not like very well so they are not included here. None the less, what is here is lots of fun.   ENJOY the ride.

For over the top enthusiasts of train songs, I also can provide additional files of stuff via Microsoft Excel to those with interest.   The topics are:

"Who done somebody wrong songs" with Trains mentioned.

A "REG." list of other Songs with the word Train or railroad or etc. and not shown here, is also available.   Just send me an email. (below)

 

On June 4 2020 I found a small library on Spotify.  The play list title is  "TRAIN TRACKS:  RAILROAD OLDIES / TRAIN SONGS / TRAIN OLDIES"  Enjoy!
