Hi, I'm really interested in which song you connect airliners, airplanes, the whole aeronautX.

"I Still Call Australia Home" with Qantas.
"Up up and Away" with the former TAA, although it was first used by, I think, TWA.
And, illogically, "Goodnight My Someone" from "The Music Man" with the original PanAm, as they used to play it when it got dark on international flights.
Cheers
Bill

Actually not a specific one, I tend to associate each of my plane trips with the music I hear from the IFE program. So everytime I hear one of the songs again later, it gives me a kind of a good feeling. Thi sphenomenon even works if it would be a song or interprete I would normally steer clear of, but as we all know, the choice on board is limited.

Sabena - Adiemus isn't Enya, Adiemus is Adiemus.

For me, 'Pokarekareana' or Bette Midler's (sp?) 'Wind Beneath my Wings' remind me of Air New Zealand.

"Leavin' on a Jet'plane" by Peter, Paul and Marry,
and, in a funny way, "Overdue Goodbye" by Anastacia. I've been always listening to this beautiful song while I was uploading my photos.

Pachabel's Canon, This music was from the Air & Space museum's movie "To Fly" Just listening to it makes me think of the "Blue Angels"

Rhapsody In Blue, Nothing says UA better. Getting that music was genius by someone at WHQ. Now Marketing is run by a bunch of idiots, but at least they are smart enough not to dump it.

Sweet Home Chicago, whenever I am landing at ORD I hear Jake and Elwood singing this song.

I have this tape I bought in CLUB MED as a child. I play it relligiously whenever I fly. Whenever I play if I feel like I'm flying. Oh, and there is this song by the Beatles..."Fool on the Hill" that one connects me to AA because I first heard it on an AA MD-80 from LGA-MIA. Then I heard in about 100 times more on subsequent flights. Also that song that Delta used to use in commercials. Its like yadda yadda yama yame yame yame oh!

Alejandro Sanz- Y solo se me ocurre amarte- dont ask me why but I first heard this song on an AA flight , so I guess this has something to do with it.

First thing that comes to mind is a passage from Mozart's opera, Don Juan -- the one where Leporello, Don Juan's faithful servant, tells the story of how many lovers his master has had across Europe, and at the end he boasts, proudly singing in loud Italian: "But in Spain... but in Spain, already one thousand and three!"

The reason is that I heard it recently on a Delta 777 flying ATL to Paris. IT was blasting in my headphones, I was slightly dizzy from the wine, and I was listening to glorious loud Mozart while shooting through the dark sky at 30 000 feet over the big blue ocean. I was so happy I wanted to scream! My seat mates must have been wondering why I had a smile from ear to ear.

Rhapsody in Blue completely reminds me of flying.

Also, whenever I hear "Danger Zone" from Top Gun, I think of a takeoff.

"Question Of Balance" by the Moody Blues. It revives the feelings I had the first time I did a take off in a 727! The chorus of the song still brings back memories of the turn into broken clouds right after take off. I can still see/feel it when I hear this song!

"Learning to Fly" by Pink Floyd.

"Here Comes the Sun" by the Beatles. When I was younger my older brother would let me borrow his tapes to play on my Walkman when we would fly somewhere. He had a lot of Beatles tapes. Since then, I always think of flying when I hear that song.

Every time I am at YYZ I seem to hear the song "This Flight Tonight" by Nazareth.

But the song I associate with Air Canada is Sixteen Tons by Tennessee Ernie Ford..."Another day older and deeper in debt"...sorry, I couldn't resist.  Big grin
