"Traveling Song by Mikhail Glinka is perhaps the first railroad song. It was composed in 1840 as a tribute to the opening of Russia's first railroad, which connected St. Petersburg with the royal summer residence in Tsarskoe Selo. The song offers a dazzling picture of movement generated by the time's biggest wonder, the locomotive engine.

This express tongue twister of a song starts with the refrain, which moves in a perpetual mobile mode. The verse is of a lyrical character, despite the fact that the tempo never wavers, staying the same throughout the work. The song is included in the song cycle A Farewell to St. Petersburg." - Vadim Prokhorov
