Greetings everyone,

I'm a big fan of watching old airline commercials on youtube. I recently used the song that American has used for their post 9/11 adds and the merger with TWA. I used it for a short video I made and can't figure out what song this is. I thought it was a song called "Storms in Africa" but it isn't. Any help would be great.

Its only about 40 seconds.


Any help in what song this is would be great. Originally used in American airlines commercials.

This is my first thread so I hope this is the right area.

This song was developed by a Chicago based marketing firm (whose name escapes me) specifically for American Airlines. The person who uploaded the Norwegian Cruise Line video used the song from the AA commercial.

I was going to say the same thing.

While it sounds very similar to Enya's Storms in Africa it is not. Portions of Taliesin Orchestra's "Storms In Africa" are very close, as is Aoibheann's version, but I've not found (nor do I expect to find) an exact match... both are iTunesable, BTW.

There's something about that chant that is just very etheral -- and every time I hear it I have a mental image of a MD-80 being tugged across the ramp at sunrise.
