Aviation Related Music!

Okay PoA Members...here's your challenge for the day. I just installed a new audio system in my airport terminal building, complete with iPod docking station for my listening pleasure. I want to put a series of playlists together, including one that is completely aviation related. Give me all of your favorite aviation, airport, airplane related songs so I can get a start on this!!

I already have the following:

1) Pink Floyd - Learning to Fly
2) Steve Miller - Jet Airliner
3) Foo Fighters - Learn to Fly
4) Tom Petty - Learning to Fly
(I'm picking up on a theme about learning to fly...)

What else ya got?? Hit me!!

Re: Aviation Related Music!

Rocket Man -- Elton John
Theme from Top Gun

There is a beautiful little folk song about aviation but I forget who sings it. If you want to go the extra mile contact Tom Gresham at GunTalk.com. He knows the musician. Tom is an avid pilot and hosted the Wings to Adventure television show.

To the above list, I'd ad:

'Bootleg Flyer' by Mudcrutch
'Promised Land' by Elvis

You could even ad 'United Breaks Guitars'....

The Co-pilot Song - numerous versions. The USAF Band and Singing Sargeants version is good.

Lord Guard & Guide (USAF Hymn) - same thing. Singing Sergeants do a nice job on that one too.

Sorry multiple posts, just digging through the collection here.

"I'll Fly Away" Allison Krauss & Gillian Welch from the Oh, Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack.

(Which is a great movie by the way. Who'd a thought Homer's Odyssey could be moved to the U.S Deep South in the 30s and still work? Heh heh. Awesome.)

Some people believe it is about basketball, but I know it is about flying.
