Tube Music:or how the Muses sound on the Underground
The tube station that I commute through plays classical music through their loudspeakers. Supposedly this is a dispersal tactic to stop loiterers. What has the Western world come to, well Kanye West's burgeoning Messiah complex... Anywho, I'm waiting for the day when I get to hear a bit of Purcell or Holst going down those terrifying escalators that feel like you're descending a precipice. They, and the awfully cramped (and now sweaty, thanks British weather gods for coming through this year, we'll hold barbecues in your honour!) are more than enough to make one loiter.
