What songs do you like to listen to on a plane:

classic rock: Beatles, stones, doors, and such.

On a 757/767: Since they were introduced in the 80's: Cars, police, guns n' roses.

What about you? Hope this post will work out!

All the Elvis Presley stuff when we fly in or out of Memphis. Maybe it's a FedEx thing??  Smile Other than that, I just enjoy some good Buena Vista Social Club sometimes. It's relaxing.

This is silly, but there's a song from the 1980s by the Pet Shop Boys "....I've got the brains, you've got the looks, let's make lots of money...." that to this day I associate with a flight I took from London to Chicago on BA in 1986. The song played over and over on the in-flight system and it had this international sound to it that totally fit into the motif.

Yeah, definetly agree with the above statement. Additionally, I also like to listern to early to mid 90s light rock (Primative Radio Gods, Martin Page, etc), and also Eurodance--to get me in the mood for the all those discoteks I visit when I'm in Europe!!!

I just ordered an MP3 jukebox player--an Apple I-Pod lookalike about the size and shape of a Sony Walkman tape player--but with a 20GB hard drive embedded inside it. Its brochure says I can download 667 CD cuts. I think what they mean is that, with the help of my laptop, I can convert 667 CD cuts to MP3 files. But that means I can listen to virtually every CD I own while I'm flying.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Is there anyone else who travels with either an I-Pod or an MP3 player?

Hiphop, rap and house are my first choice for in-flight music. Even classic rock: Journey, Foreigner, Boston, Styx, U2, Supertramp. Flying is great. Flying with good tunes is better.

P.M.& Wings - Jet
Steve Miller - Big Old Jet Airliner
Bob Rivers - Beat Up Old Jetliner !!!

I love just about everything you guys have mentioned...

However, there was a slightly less known artist that I was really into when I started business travel in '95... If any of you recognize her, I will be very impressed...

Her name is Sarah Masen, one of the songs was called "Fly Baby"... something I have always associated with flying ever since.

A little light jazz or easy listening. Something similar to channel 71 on the XM dial also known as Watercolors.

I don't listen to music much on flights but one verse of a '70's disco song comes to mind..

fly robin fly....up, up in the sky.


and if that verse pops into my head during the t/o run then that's it, it's going through my mind for the duration of my flight... heck, I can't get it out of my head now!!

Timo Maas - Shifter
DJ Mystik - Send Me An Angel
Faithless - Insomnia

WorldPerks, I always take either my NoMad Jukebox, or the good old NoMad II (If it is a short flight). Can not really enjoy the rush of take offs without a good beat  Big grin
