Song That Reminds You Of A Certain Aircraft

Thu Mar 10, 2005 9:56 am

Are there any songs that you hear that will remind you of a certain aircraft, or a certain flight you have been on. or even a certain aircraft that just intrigued you. Mine are as follows, and reasons listed

1. Cher-Believe to Nations Air 737-200 N7375F... My sister was flying to SFB in 1999, and I was going with them to the airport and I heard this song on the radio right as we pulled into the airport and I saw her plane pulling in. I dunno why, but I guess it intrigued me because it was my first time seeing a Boeing 737-200.

2. Bon Jovi - Its My Life to AirTran Boeing 717-2BD N950AT... This was my first 717 flight, and I had just bought the new CD and I listened to it as we got to cruising altitude.



That is it for now, but are there any songs you hear on the radio from time to time that remind you of a certain aircraft. If so, you truly know you have JET-A Blood type coursing through your veins.

Perhaps not.. smirk

i bring my cd's and cd player every time i fly. and i listen to music all through the flights. i'd have to say, that Linkin Park reminds me of USAirways 737's.
theres a band called Chevelle, and any song by them reminds me of CO 738's, ill never forget that. i was listening to them while on the ground waiting for a gate for 2hrs at snowed in CLE last year. and the same for waiting in the de-icing line for another couple hrs.

Another, more unpleasant one, is britney spears. some girl had her headphones way too loud at the airport while i was delayed in ATL last summer. now , unfortunately, everytime i hear any britney spears song, i think of DL MD-88's. lol

I just downloaded an instrumental called, of all things, "clubbed to death" by Ron D. Weird title, I know, but anyways, it's a song used on some commercials and movie trailers. When I hear this song, I visualize a 747-400 being rolled out of a hangar being prepped to fly. Kinda cool in my book.
I'm not a real aeronautical engineer, I just play one on Airliners.net.

Being that I listen to a classical music station on a regular basis, anything sweeping and majestic sounding gets me thinking of aircraft in general. Now, if Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue comes on, I picture a 767 in the old 1980s United colors.
I, too, also carry my music with me when I travel, and the one song that sticks out to me is one by an Australian group called the Bomfunk MCs, with the song Freestyler. It very much reminds me of a flight back to the US from Germany on an ATA L-1011. So, whenever my randomizer on my computer's mp3 plays that song, it gets me thinking of that lovely bird.

Steppenwolf's Magic Carpet Ride reminds me of a shuttle launch. You can bet I'll be listening to that when the next one occurs, sometime in May.

I know I'm showinig my age here but I remember when Peter, Paul, and Mary released "Leaving on a Jet Plane". I always envisioned boarding a Pan Am 707 and just flying until we had to stop for fuel.

All Star by Smashmouth was stuck in my head when I flew a MetroJet 732.
I've never heard this one other than in the Concorde video but

Whenever I hear
the song Blue (da ba dee) it always reminds me of flying.
Reason being that I first heard it on a plane and my
Dad gave me the CD on a plane.
Anyways, it just seems to go after all that happened!

Quite a few, as I always associate songs with notable flights...usually I've listened to them either just before, just after, or during the flight...here's a few examples...

Dancing Nancies by DMB...NZ 744 landing at LAX, in 2001

Livin on a Prayer by Bon Jovi...Ryan International DC-10 trip PHL-MCO-PHL in 2003

Some Incubus song I can't remember the name of at the moment...US A330 PHL-PIT in 2002...

Avril Lavigne - Complicated , Robbie Williams - Feel and Sugarbabes - Shape of my heart = Emirates's Boeing 777-31H A6-EMM

I flew this aircraft from SIN-LHR via DXB and listened to a few pop songs on board, now everytime I hear this songs played on radio reminds me of that aircraft.

'Tunnel of Love' by Dire Straits is my take- off song to the UA777 and it will be when I go to IAD with them on the 763.

Does anyone know why they tell you not to listen to your CD Players on take off? The Captain claims it interferes with the controls but I think thats bollocks. If a CD player does interfere at all, with any controls, at any part a flight, they would be banned!  Confused

Red Hot Chili Peppers "Zephyr Song" and Goldenhorse "Maybe Tomorrow" will always remind me of my first ever trip to New Zealand on 747-400 ZK-NBW.

And a song called "Dear Elaine" can't remember the artist but reminds me of my first flight ever on a BAC 111 in 1974.

How about food? Chili Con Carne reminds me of being stuck (with the sh**s) in an A330 toilet between Bahrain and Goa!!!

ROFLMFAO I like that one, lol.

The Isley Brothers Summer Breeze reminds me of Britannia Airways. Around 1992 I can always remember this being played as we boarded the aircraft and the song must have been on a loop, that's all that was played.

Whats the Crosby Stills and Nash song (just a song before I go, to whom it may concern), reminds me of a United 727 in the '60's color scheme.

Steve Millers "Jet Airliner" makes me think of a TWA 707.
I love the rumble of a 727 takeoff in the morning!

When FL unveiled its 717 bearing Sir Elton's face on the fuselage (to promote its launch of XM Satellite radio on its aircraft), his old Rocketman song started ringing in my head.

The following morning (after I saw the A.net thread on it) on the local news, while the newcasters were making a similar announcement; lo and behold, the Rocketman was playing while a video of a FL 717 w/Sir Elton's image was taking off.

Pixies' "Where is my mind" and Placebo's "Special Needs" both remind me of an AA 757. I listened to them both inflight on my iPod while flying EWR-SJU.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot...

"There's only one way to rock" by Sammy Hagar, "Smokin in the boy's room" (the Motley Crue version), and "Iron Man" by Black Sabbath.

All of these songs remind me of flying an AA 767 on HNL-LAX.

Frank Zappa's "Camarillo Brillo" reminds me of a DL 752, I heard it on my first approach into SFO onboard this plane after a long trip from DUS via BRU and ATL.

"16 Military Wives" by The Decemberists

"Tahitian Moon" by Porno for Pyros

All of these songs remind me of landing in an AirTran 717 at CAK.

"The Sound Of Settling" and "The New Year" by Death Cab For Cutie both remind me of MD80s, but only if you are sitting where it's quiet (obviously the front).

Here's why:

1. The song "The New Year" starts out with the same familiar engine noise you hear when you are in the back of an MD80

2. (When you are in a quiet spot) on the MD80, "The Sound Of Settling" is perfect because it is... QUIET!

I just got the Beastie Boys cassette "Licensed to Ill" with the Boeing 727 "3M TA3" on the cover, and had this in my Walkman for the flight.

Even though I listened to the entire cassette during the 3 hour flight, every time I hear "She's Crafty" it takes me right back to that moment in time.
