Yes, you read the title correctly. It's The Meetles.
I was walking through the Times Square subway station the other day and I heard a band playing "Here Comes the Sun," one of my favorite Beatles' songs. It was part of the Music Under New York program, sponsored by New York City Transit, which schedules musical performances in subway stations and commuter rail terminals. There is a wide range of types of music and the quality is very high. I always enjoy chancing on a singer or band during my travels around the city. The Meetles were terrific and I stayed though "Here Comes the Sun," despite knowing I might be late for the appointment I had. It was definitely well worth risking lateness.
There are many other performers in the subway system -- not sanctioned by New York City Transit. But that said, they almost always make traversing the subway system more enjoyable. When I got to my platform a musician was playing "My Favorite Things" on steel drums at one end of the platform. Further down the platform a woman was singing a Spanish ballad. I enjoyed the sign she had with her.
We were back to winter today and snow is predicted for tomorrow. Nonetheless I'm planning to be out and about knowing things should be spring-like again by Saturday.
Please stop by tomorrow for Random 5 Friday fun. We'll be back to the Metropolitan Museum and I've got other fun pictures to share.
As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care.
