Schmoof's Northern Line is far superior with a hint of metro double-entendre at the end of the second verse:
"And our fingers touched at that moment Causing both of us to quiver And we rode the tube until Morden I don't go south of the river"
And I particularly like the spoken chat up lines towards the end
"what do you stars say today love? don't know, haven't read em yet, meet a handsome stranger on the Tube, yeah right"
Ziggy and co's Northern Line is more boy band song by numbers - with its chirpy chorus:
"What do I have to do To get closer to you? Cos I would do anything to make you mine Near or far just to be where you are Tell me Who would have thought, I'd find love on the Northern Line"
Theirs closes with more turn of the century boy band warbling / white rap "Nah, nah, nah, Northern Line, bring it on, bring it on, Bring it on Baby. Northern Line one time etc etc"
But both end with a sort of Tube noise reference. Schmoof's lulls you with the gentle rocking of "Northern Line, Northern Line, Northern Line," repeated to fade. Ziggy's ends with a static crackle caused by a woman in a white coat unplugging a lead from a giant computer. Possibly the power socket which runs the entire Misery Line.
And speaking of love on the Tube, Adam Gichie from TV production company Drive Through Pictures, is researching for a program based on finding love on the underground. He's looking for some real life stories, "everything from funny flirt stories to fully-fledged dating success stories." Please email him - email@example.com if you've got anything that fits the bill.
