Sonic Youth: Sugar Kane. The great MM in doomy counterpoint.
That first passage, after the brief intro dialogue, where the music comes in and MM hurries down the dark train corridor is, I think, quite beautiful. The lyrics can be found here.
Youre perfect in the way, a perfect end today
Youre burning out their lights, and burning in their eyes
I love you sugar kane, a-comin from the rain
Oh kiss me like a frog, and turn me into flame
I love you all the time, I need you 8 to 9...
... and this, from here...

The choice of passage was Bloodaxe's. I am not quite sure of this deeply factual piece of narrative as best place to start in Metro, which is more sense of place than family saga, but it's nice to have Pearl there. Meet Pearl. Lily is hiding somewhere as usual.
