Throughout time, buses have been a popular subject in song. None of us actually like riding the bus, but we can't deny there are some pretty good songs about buses. Some of the best bus songs reference the mode of transportation in their titles and others mention Greyhounds in their lyrics. Most of the top songs about buses are really songs about traveling.

“Magic Bus” by The Who is a great song about buses. This song has appeared in such films as Goodfellas and Jerry Maguire. The Hollies' “Bus Stop” is another great tune about buses, as is “Thank God and Greyhound” by Roy Clark.

Simon & Garfunkel sing, “As we boarded a Greyhound in Pittsburgh/Michigan seems like a dream to me now,” on their hit, “America." Later in the song they also sing, “Laughing on the bus/Playing games with the faces.” “New York State of Mind” by Billy Joel also appears on this list of the top songs about buses.
