Singing in Motion

I recently came across a few different YouTube videos that seems slightly odd to me. Apparently, there are a number of different musical shows/sites that feature musicians singing their songs while in various modes of transportation. There's a "Black Cab Sessions" where artists sing in a cab, there's the Swedish "Tram Sessions" where they sing on a trolley, and then there's "(Behind) Closed Doors" a Dutch venture, where artists sing in a moving elevator. I really don't get it. But I thought I'd share.

The first is Jens Lekman singing his single (and personal favorite) "Black Cab" while riding IN a black cab. Alas, I think it gets a bit awkward towards the end when he gets to the part of the song where he's singing about the cab driver not knowing anything and how he should keep his mouth shut...but all remains quiet from the cabby as he sings.

Swedish band "New Found Land" sings in a tram, I have only recently discovered them:

And last but not least, Ane Brun and her friend (and my favorite) Nina Kinert, sing together in an elevator:
