In addition to getting us from A to B and having a smart, colourful map, the tube has also inspired many a musician over the years. Ray Davies crafted a classic urban lullaby about lovers at Waterloo, Suggs would have been happy to meet you for a cuppa by Camden Town, and by the sounds of it The Jam spent most of their teenage lives down there.
So whether you’re waiting for that delayed service to West Ruislip, or you just want to avoid the busker you’ve heard play ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ four times this week – we’ve knocked you up the perfect platform-tapping playlist.
