Music could get described as an art form whose medium is sound and silence. Music gets used to express and modulate emotion. It makes us wanna hum, sing and dance. Since it is a subjective art form, it is understandable that not every song has the potential to be favored by every single human being.Many musicians got inspired by their interactions with trains, and while being intellectually stimulated, they came up with these memorable songs.
