Magic Bus: MTA Jingle Winner

Wao, newfangled way of transportations.

So Geoff Smith won the MTA jingle contest with his bouncy, mass transit-endorsing ditty "Brand New Way." Seems to me that city buses have been around for, I don't know, 60 years, making them not a brand new way of doing anything. But whatever. You may know Geoff (pronounced like JEFF) as a member of local pop-rockers Codaphonic. You may not know that he is also "bassist and lead singer for the Chicago-based Police tribute band, One World." Did he really start the chorus for a massive bus-riding jingle with a minor chord? That takes moxie, folks.

Sure you can download the song.
