I would think A Train Leaves In The Morning isn't really that good. Like GS stated that it's too draggy, but I don't think the lyrics are really that strong and well written.

Is that the one you're going to vote for? Just checking because sometimes it's hard to tell if someone is musing about a song or is actually casting their vote for it to leave the island.

I see your point about TLHTM's lyrics. "The answer that I wrote down on my sleeve"? Plus, what does he mean by "I don't know what I might be on?" He doesn't know whether he should be on the train?

The line is actually "The address that I wrote down on my sleeve" referring to 1320 North Columbus.

Isn't it "address" rather than "answer?"

I reckon this is more of a "smoker passed it on" song both musically and lyrically

LOL I'm sorry. Yeah that's the one I'm going to vote for. I don't understand those lines either.

I actually knew that it was "address" - I was typing quickly and accidentally wrote the wrong word - I hate it when that happens! So embarrassing. Thank you for checking for accuracy.

I vote for Journey of the Sorcerer. I like it just not as much as the others.
