Travelers are used to seeing musicians in the New York City subway, but usually they are just random people trying to make a few bucks. Not world famous celebrities.
However, a few lucky travelers at the W. 66th Street stop were greeted with a special celeb treat. Musician and singer Michael Buble was randomly singing an a cappella version of his new song Who’s Lovin’ You.
Apparently, not all train rides are created equal. Tanya Comber was on a Dublin train travelling across Ireland to Galway when a very uncommon scene unfolded. Well, perhaps uncommon for anyone who isn’t Irish.
On her train car was a group of musicians that started to celebrate the weekend early right there on the train. Soon, a teen was set dancing on a small table as the musicians played traditional Irish folk music and witnesses clapped their hands and enjoyed the music as if it was just another Friday afternoon.
Hearing someone play the saxophone while on your daily NYC subway commute is nothing out of the ordinary. On the contrary, it’s rare when you have a little peace and quiet in your train car.
But GREATTIM E stumbled upon a musical event that was in true rare form, even for New York. While a musician was playing the sax at one end of the subway car, a dude with his buddy on camera phone took out his sax and started to play.
Nearly instantly, the two get in sync and start rocking out. They battle musically, clashing their notes together like swords. Of course the travelling witnesses loved the interaction. As they say, “Only in New York.”
Last week, random804 published this awesome video of a stranger he just met playing a sick drum beat on the Caboolture train in Australia while beat boxing and rapping. Now, that video stands with over 650,000 views.
Naturally, as this is the web, viewers doubt the player’s authenticity, claiming there must be another source sound as his performance was too impressive to simply come from a train seat.
