In 86, on time, at the station,

arrived A-Ha with ‘Train Of Thought’,

and Randy Crawford’s moving 81 hit –

‘A Rainy Night In Georgia’, our imagination caught.

 

At No.13 with ‘Steamy Windows’,

in 90, was Tina Turner,

and ‘Wheels Of Steel’ sang Saxon in 80,

stoking this all night burner.

 

In 69, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

with ‘Tracks Of My Tears’, in a Top10 place.

And in 76, Linda Ronstadt also,

‘Tracks Of My Tears’ – did embrace.

 

In 93 came Peter Gabriel,

at No.10 with his hit song ‘Steam’.

Also covering this track in 94

were Brian Harvey and East 17.

 

Charles McDevitt’s Skiffle Group & Nancy Whiskey

came thundering through at speed.

Reaching No5 in 57 with their

‘Freight Train’ – a hit indeed.

 

In 95, ‘Train Of Thought’ by Escrima,

also came into view,

And in 03, ‘Train On The Track’

gave Kelly Rowland, a Top 20 pew.

 

In 82, Colin Blunstone, with his version of,

‘Tracks Of My Tears’ –  was at his best.

And in 93, ‘Tracks Of My Tears’, again,

arrived at Platform16  for Go West.

 

‘The Train Is Coming’ sang Shaggy,

featuring Wayne Wonder in 96,

and ‘Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye’, in 70,

at No.9, by Steam, in this final carriage mix.

 

Wherever your destination

Whatever your reason for going;

be it business or pleasure, be sure,

your route, the railway track is knowing.

 

No matter how fast new developments

appear in this mad-cap technical dream,

There is no better way to reach your destination

than to arrive, relaxed, having got there by STEAM.
