Some of you may recall that a couple of months ago I got on a roll and made up all these crazy Southwest Airlines songs and posted them in a thread I called Listen to My Wacky Commercials.

I ended up revising some of the verses on some of the songs. (The revisions can be viewed here.)

Last month, I flew to Dallas for a wedding and while I was visiting at my parents, I printed them out and when I was at DAL checking in for my return flight to AUS on July 14, I turned them in the woman at the ticket counter and she said she would put them in the interoffice mail bin and send them over to Headquarters.

That was a month ago, and to tell you the truth I had kind of forgotten about it.

Well today, someone at Southwest Airlines Customer Relations called me and thanked me for writing and said he really enjoyed the songs and was going to forward them to the appropriate department, so who knows, maybe y'all will be hearing one of my songs on a Southwest flight soon.

I've had a run of bad luck lately, and this call just made my day. Anyway, just wanted to share and say thanks to those of you who encouraged me to send them in to HDQ when I originally posted them a couple of months ago.

That's great! I really hope we use them in the future. You definitely have a flair for songwriting.

Well, here's an amusing little update to this story. Last week, after I made this post, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal Online apparently read it here at airliners.net and sent me an e-mail wanting to know if she could talk to me. She said she was doing a story on airplane music and thought my wacky songs might fit in nicely.

Of course I agreed and she called me last Wednesday. We spoke for about 20 minutes. Today, the article came out in the online edition, but unfortunately, not in the actual paper edition. (I ran down to my local library and checked).

Unfortunately, the Wall Street Journal Online is a subscriber edition, and because of the whole copyright issue (plus the fact that I'm not a subscriber) I can't post the article here, but someone on another board was kind enough to post the part of the article that mentioned me here . (It's the third post in the thread.)

Let's hope the SWA flight attendants put in a good word for me.

SWALUVFA, are you out there?  Smile

Good job! Those songs from the other thread are AWESOME!! I'm not sure how I missed that thread.

I really like "Downtown", but they're all good!

Thanks. I'm actually working on some with a Christmas theme. Just click on the links, wait for the song to load and sing along with LoneStarMike.  Smile

Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

Flyin' around the USA
On a Southwest Airlines Flight
They're Friendly, they're fun
And they're number one
'Cause they always treat you right

Savin' you bucks each and every trip
That's the Southwest Airlines way
Grab a low fare and
they'll get you there
For the Christmas Holiday

You will save with Southwest Airlines
each and every day
That's why folks are always ravin'
'Bout the money that they're savin'

Flyin' around the USA
Have a happy holiday
Everyone flyin' merrily
That's the Southwest Airlines way

(instrumental part)

You will save with Southwest Airlines

That's why folks are always ravin'
'Bout the money that they're savin'

Everyone flyin' merrily
That's the South-West-Air-Lines waaaay

Winter Wonderland

It's Christmas tiiime -

And lots of flights

They're such a delight
And they'll treat you right,
Just let Southwest Airlines take you there

With their low prices all across the nation
In just a few keystrokes you will be set

Jingle Bells

Verse 1:

Zipping through the air
On a Southwest Airlines jet
With a great low fare
Booked on the internet
Southwest saves me bucks
Each and every day
How nice it is to fly and save
The Southwest Airlines Way
------------------------------------------

Chorus 1:

Southwest Air, Southwest Air,
They're the ones for me
Great low fares and friendly folks
Such hospitality
O Southwest Air, Southwest Air
Saves me every every day
Oh how nice it is to fly
The Southwest Airlines way
------------------------------------------

Verse 2:

A day or two ago
I thought I'd take a flight
Got on the internet
And went to their website
I really was surprised
The process was so quick
Before I knew it I was done
Southwest is really slick
------------------------------------------

Chorus 2:

Southwest Air, Southwest Air
They're the ones for me
Booking on Southwest dot com
Is easy as can be
O Southwest Air, Southwest Air
Saves me every day
Oh how nice it is to fly
The Southwest Airlines way
------------------------------------------

Verse 3

: Now where all do they go?
You won't believe your eyes
When you see all the cities
Where Southwest Airlines flies
Orlando and Detroit
Chicago, West Palm Beach
When you fly Southwest Air
The price is never out of reach
------------------------------------------

Chorus 3:

Southwest Air, Southwest air
Look at where they go
Austin, Dallas, Houston
Little Rock and Buffalo
(HEY!) Baltimore, Providence
Phoenix, San Jose
Omaha, St. Louis,
Cleveland, Hartford, Tampa Bay!
------------------------------------------

Verse 4:

Fly Southwest and you'll see
They're friendlier than most
And on their comfy planes
They'll fly you coast-to-coast
So book a flight today
And see the reason why
Everybody chooses Southwest
Airlines when they fly
------------------------------------------

Chorus 4:

Southwest Air, Southwest Air,
They're the ones for me
Great low fares and friendly folks
Such hospitality
O Southwest Air, Southwest Air
Saves me every every day
Oh how nice it is to fly
The Southwest Airlines way

Yes... I am STILL crazy.  Smile
