Here's an interesting topic. What's your favorite song to be listening to on your about to takeoff, that feeling of raw power from the jet engines pulsates through your body, and that unforgettable "thump" once the plane gets airborne??

For me, none other then Enya's Adieumus. The song was just made for those 20 seconds.

"I am leaving on a Jet Plane"  Smile/happy/getting dizzy


Sir, don't you think we should turn on the runway lights?" "No, that's just what there expecting us to do!"

Were are you allowed to listen to music during takeoff anymore? Usually they make you turn off everything until after takeoff.

Adiemus? From Enya? No! The song Adiemus is written by Karl Jenkins and performed by his group who also is called Adiemus. I think you refer to the song used in the Delta commercial some years ago.

I have so many songs, depending on occasion, mood, airline, ...! Mostly it would be the Lufthansa theme!

Superfly, I'm with you 100%. What's all this crap about "songs".
If the engines sounds allright I'm allright. Yeay, baby.
Let those turbines roll, yeah. Oh' behave.

Nowadays it is hard to find airline cabin crews that will allow for that but in the old days I enjoyed taking off with Beethoven's 9th Symphony's "Ode to Joy" . In the late 70s Lufthansa used that in a commercial that pictured a DC-10 flying through the clouds with this song in the back.

When I used to be allowed to listen to music on takeoff I'd like to hear any of the following:

1. Flight of the Snowbirds by David Foster
2. Silver Wheel by Andreas Vollenweider (or anything from "Down to the Moon")
3. Escape from the Atmosphere by Mannheim Steamroller (on the same album "Earthrise Return" was awesome for approach and landing).

As I've stated numerous time before, I flew Polskie Linie Lotnicze LOT last year and on this flight we were allowed to listen to music. Only walkmans were permitted but diskmans could be turned on once the seatbelt signs were turned off. I remember listening to a song... forgot which one though. I do agree though, Adieumus by Enya is a great one that reminds me of flying.

There are a few songs that remind me of certain flights i have teken.
e.g. Look into my father's eyes - Eric Clapton / ATA GND - YYZ. IT played all throough the flight so now when i hear that song i remember the flight.

But on startup, engine rev to taxi and take off.. I want everything and everybody to be quiet. I want to hear the engines sing their song. I like hearing the B737 and A320 series aircrafts engines change sound as they spool up.



There is something special about planes....

When I flew with Tarom for the first time (in 1979 ) on a IL-62M there was a tape with Disco music and Sylvester´s ´You make me feel´among others which auto-reversed every 45 or so min but it was that particular song I always remember when I think of my first trip to Romania Big grin

Same goes with Malaisya Airlines in 1997 who I flew 5 times that year and an instrumental version of ´Right here waiting ´by Richard Marx always was to be heard when I boarded one of their 747-400´s prior to take-off and after landing ...

Those are the 2 songs that really remind me of my flying more than any other song does........

God bless those 2 airlines or giving me such a great time on their planes & flashback every time I hear these 2 songs....

Excuse me guys, but I suspect this thread is really about death.
"What song do you like to hear on takeoff". Spooky.
Are you all talking about what kind of music you would like
your loved ones to hear when they remember you
(after your plane mysteriousley crashed 2 minutes after takeoff)?
My suggestion: "I will always love you" with Whitney Houston
(see, I am not cynical).

Obviously above anything the sound of the engines spooling up..

But if we are too choose a song probably 'heading out to the highway' (live version from 'metal works 73-93' definetely), or 'stormrider' by Iced Earth (because it has such energy)  Smokin cool
