We were under the assumption that our poem about the wonders of the G train would never be topped. Chalk it up the kind of casual arrogance inspired by loving something people love to hate. But we’ll gladly cede the title of “Best Tribute to the G Train” to Rob Paravonian, who put together an entire song, plus music video extolling the virtues of the oft-maligned line. Those virtues include:
-the girls are cuter
-no Manhattan = no bridge and tunnel types
-it’s small batch transit
But don’t let us read the lyrics to you like some kind of terrible William Shatner cover, discover the magic of the song yourself. Still, we’ll admit that the MTA could cool it with the cutting the line in half thing every goddamn weekend.
