Music Videos On ATA

Sun Aug 15, 2004 9:01 am

Anyone have a list of music videos played prior to flights on ATA aircraft? Back in January I remember watching a video of someone female singer singing a remake of an 80s (?) song, and it's bugging me that I can't remember!

I'm pretty sure it was ATA as I've only flown twice since January and the other airline was Southwest, and I know it wasn't on Southwest.

The only dumb song that I can't get out of my head is(don't have a clue what band or the name of the song is) "There's a hole in the world tonight, don't let there be a hole in the world tomorrow!!!!!" That song made me want hang myself with dental floss!!!

Well I dunno what that is, but this song was fairly popular if I remember right, and that's why it's bugging me. :/

Was it possible Jessica Simpson's cover of Berlin's 80's hit "Take My Breath Away" that was orginally featured on the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack "Top Gun?"

I just flew ATA to Hawaii and back this past week and no music videos on our flights other than Hawaiian music and Pleasant Holidays adverts.

skyway1- Thats sung by a country group of men called "eagles" i believe. That song IS annoying! I hate it.


westerndc10- i can assure you it wasnt the video of jessica simpson as the entire video is featured in a desert unless you mean Berlin's music video?

Sammyk,

Can you describe the video? Describe the singer? Pop? Soul/R&B? Country?

Atrude777,

As annoying as that song may be, The Eagles are NOT a country group.

Ya know, I think it was shot in a desert or something. The original song was pop. It mainly showed the female that was singing it but she also had her band, and I kinda remember the name of the band being "so and so and band", but I'm not sure. It wasn't Jessica Simpson though, as I don't think her remake of the Berlin song was even out at the time.

Oh and the Eagles have been known as country rock, however that above mentioned song is NOT by the Eagles.

I think the video you're thinking of is "The First Cut Is the Deepest" by Sheryl Crow which is a remake of a Cat Stevens song from the 70's.

No, the song was popular, not the singer. I think the original was done by a female singer too.

For some reason I think the original was by either Berlin or The Motels. Not sure though.

Let me just ask this thought, they DO show videos on ATA right? I mean right when you get on the plane while they are getting stuff ready? Just want to make sure I am remembering the airline right.

ATA does still do the videos. Just flew them on August 6th and August 13th from MSP-MDW-BOS and BOS-MDW-MSP. All trips showed some Luther Vandross videos, a George Michael video, and Whitney Houston's "One Moment In Time," it was a nice touch IMO.
