Transit Tunes: Songs to Celebrate Feet

Celebrate your most reliable transit mechanism -- your feet -- with this handy playlist.

When all else fails, we can travel the oldest of old-fashioned ways: By foot. Almost every route involves at least a few steps. And the feeling of facing the wind—whether standing in the middle of a crosswalk or atop a mountain—is awesome. That's probably why we found so many songs about walking, past every point, on any given journey.
