Music That Reminds You Of Aviation

Wed Feb 07, 2007 11:14 am

What song reminds you of flying/aviation the most?

For example, Mind machine by ATC is my choice.

"Tourne la Page" by Rene and Nathalie Simard is a good song (real 80s Quebecois music (1987))

The one where Sinatra sings "Come fly with me"

Ever since seeing it in Catch Me if You Can it's reminded me of aviation, especially in the 60s (which is oddly before I was born ... )

Perthshire Majesty By Samuel R. Hazo

It's very majestic. At 3:00 it reminds me of takeoff in a 757, very steep, with a great view out the window as you climb.

"Danger Zone" by Kenny Loggins. It fit the opening scene of Top Gun perfectly. I also think of F-14's when hearing this song.

"Learning to Fly" by Tom Petty is another that comes to mind.

The song 'Return to innocence' that is on a video about the 777's crosswinds landing test. I think some flight school in Turkey make the video.

For me my aviation anthem are 2 parts of Beethoven's 6th symphony. Whenever i listen to them, I close my eyes and see the land and clouds beneath me. Everytime I fly I listen to the 6th symphony

Besides the obvious Sinatra tunes (Fly Me To the Moon, Come Fly With Me), and "Mr. Blue Sky" by ELO, "Non-Stop To Brazil" Astrud Gilberto

Throwing the aviation theme (very loosely), the backing track is from the song "Jet Boy, Jet Girl" by Elton Motello , and later covered by The Damned. Let's just say that song isn't remotely aviation-related past the use of the word jet.

How about these two songs: Jetliner (The Sam Miller Band) reference to a 707

Beat Up Old Jetliner (Bob Rivers) about a rusty L1011


the second one is much funnier in its lyrics...

For me, it's all about the branding that comes to mine and I think the two most powerful of these are, like mentioned, BA's Lakme theme and UA's Rhapsody in Blue theme. They are consistent in their commercials, call holding music (which both are really nice to listen to), and terminals/boarding. So if I hear either in another situation, I immediately think of these two airlines.

For me is "Windmills of your mind" by Michel Legrand in the 1968 movie "The Thomas Crown Affair"

Just love the way Steve McQueen flies the glider to this song which also won The Academy Award for best song that year.

(Actually not sure if McQueen flew the glider himself or if a moviepilot did it, but the effect is the same)

Fully agree. Sinatra's "Come Fly With Me" album is a real classic. I have both the original 1957 12-inch vinyl LP and the CD which has 3 more tracks than the LP. All tracks are travel-related classics, especially "Come Fly With Me" itself.
Even the album cover features two TWA L1649A Starliners, the final long-range variant of the Super Constellation. Small print on the back of the original album cover reads: "Cover produced in cooperation with Trans World Airlines and featuriing the TWA Jetstream Super Constellation "

Up Where We Belong, by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warns is a song that reminds me of Aviation. It reminds me of LH, because they used it for their adverts once.
