Your Holiday Play List: Songs about Roads, Bridges, Solar Power, and More
June 30, 2021
The holiday weekend is coming up (Canada Day and 4th of July), and your friends at Ulteig have you covered with a list of tunes you may enjoy listening to (or watching on YouTube).
Consider it a starter list – because we know you may have a playlist that you want to add to the list. In creating this list, we focused on what Ulteig does best – designing and managing the construction of infrastructure — roads, bridges, transmission lines, substations, wind farms, solar power plants, water plants and more.
Granted, some songs are clearly about infrastructure, and some are, shall we say, a bit of stretch. There are some tunes you’ll instantly recognize and others that are a tad obscure. We also kept the list family friendly. It’s the spirit that counts.
Below is a list of YouTube links to our suggested Ulteig Infrastucture Tunes. If you’re inspired, you may want to create your own list of infrastructure hits on Spotify.
