I am so glad I made this community, because now I really need your creativity. My baby (!) sister is turning 30 in a few weeks, and she is going to celebrate with a London Underground themed party. She has asked guests to contribute songs that refer to trains / stations / railways, or anything to do with underground, or the names of individual Tube (or DLR or LOLtrain) stations. She's a big cryptic crossword fan and is excited for songs that allude to station names in a clever way. The more eclectic, the better.

So, please help me help my sister to have a musically memorable 30th!
