I personally think that AFI-Morningstar reminds me of flying because it's calm and it's slow and there is something in the words too ,although it says nothing about planes or flying.

The song that reminds me most of flying is Rhapsody in Blue by Gerswhin. The reason it reminds me most of flying is because I remember it was one of the first flights I can remember (well at least clearly remember). It was on a United DC-10 from MIA-ORD and during the safety video they had the song playing in the background.

Several years ago when DL had flights to PDX from SLC for $88 round trip, I flew there 6 times in five months and I always brought a mixed tape that included Chili Peppers Aeroplane. I always think of flying when I hear that song. Also, if I hear any songs from that tape on the radio or wherever, then I think of my flights to PDX.

I have a CD by Chicane and some of the songs make me think of flying. Of course it could also be because there is a picture of an airplane on the cover.

Wherever I may Roam-Metallica. I remember hearing this song as we took off on flight from ABQ-PHX on HP.

Hypnotize the Moon-Clay Walker. I heard this song on America West Radio on a flight from PHX-LAS.

That is all I can remember, maybe I can think of more.

Strangely enough it's a Madonna song that reminds me of flying....'Crazy for you' was high in the charts at the time of my first long haul flight,and it was one of the songs that sticks in my mind from that flight-(SQ019,LHR-SIN,July 1985).Ravel's Bolero is another one....it was playing for what seemed like an eternity on the PA loop on VH-OJK as we sat on the the tarmac at Sydney for over an hour last June.

B*Witched - Blame It On The Weatherman
Britney Spears - You Drive Me Crazy (Original Version)
Steps - Better Best Forgotten
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Aeroplane
