Alas, there are more Metro shutdowns on the horizon. This weekend, they'll affect the Blue and Orange lines, starting with an early closure Friday night.

Worried you'll forget? Check out our playlist of songs centered on the "last train" theme, and make sure to share your own suggestions in the comments below.

Having these tunes stuck in your head all day may be enough to help you remember the closure -- or at least give you something to listen to if you have to walk home.

Last Train Home, Imogen Heap

Last Train Home, Ryan Star

Last Train Home, Pat Metheny

Last Train Home, Lostprophets

Alternate destinations:

Last Train to Paris, Diddy

Last Train to Clarksville, The Monkees

Last Train to London, Electric Light Orchestra

Last Train to Memphis, Bobby Charles

This would have been a great opportunity to mention the fine local band "Last Train Home". Even if they don't have a song which fits your article's theme. Their singer even used to write for your paper. WTF?
