Singing a Different Tune by Shawn Conrad, CAE
I learn a tremendous amount when I sit in on sessions at parking conferences. So many great initiatives shed a light on the value parking brings to municipalities, universities, airports, and medical centers. Sessions about on-street parking as a mobility management tool in Barcelona or digitalization of parking enforcement in Amsterdam are just a few I’ve had the pleasure of attending recently. Closer to home, I heard presentations on parking improvements in Boulder, Colo,; Pittsburgh; and Missoula, Mont.
One speaker I recently heard discussed:
- The Parking Ticket.
- Parking Lot.
- Le Parking Des Anges.
- Strip Mall Parking Lots.
- Parking Hug.
- Party in the Parking Lot.
- And my favorite, Central Parking Blues
If you haven’t guessed, these are just a few of the 59 titles Spotify identifies as “parking” songs. Evidently, this speaker and others are trying to find all the recorded songs about parking. While 59 seems like a lot, I was challenged to see if there were more.
My guess is that a number of IPI blog readers have created lists of parking songs of their own. Does anyone have more than 59 titles on their playlist?
I wasn’t aware that parking songs are that plentiful. It just goes to show you that you can learn things outside of a classroom setting.
