resonant: Brian from The Breakfast Club: Demented and sad, but social (Default)
The fare is cheap and all can go.
The rich and poor are there.
No second class aboard this train,
No difference in the fare.
Get on board, chirren,
Get on board, chirren,
Get on board, chirren,
Where there's room for many a more.


I was just listening to the Fisk Jubilee Chorus and it occurred to me that all those gospel and country-gospel songs about trains were probably written when trains were new.

Think how cheesy it would be right now to write a gospel song about how we could all use our iPhones to find Jesus on the internet.

Just goes to show, (a) time converts some cheese to gold, or else (b) the gospel writers of the past were just fundamentally better than we are.
