Songs of SRF - Aviation-related music!
Permalink  
 


What the title says. Any song that sounds aviation related can be posted here. If possible link to youtube vids of it too.

I'll start with "Learning to Fly" by Pink Floyd... Stingray seems to really like this one.

Cool idea for a new thread, Leela!

Here's my first contribution: a timeless classic made popular by Frank Sinatra and covered here in concert by the great Michael Bubl ... Come Fly With Me.

The cover of the album Come Fly With Me, released in 1957, was typical of the airliner ads of the time (see the Lockheed Constellations in the background).

I'm attaching also the rear cover, as well as an alternate version that was used only on a limited circulation United Airlines promotional CD version entitled Come Fly With Us and released in the latter part of the nineties...

It was originally by Joni Mitchell in 1971.

Thanks Ace.

Another song I like from the Iron Eagle 2 soundtrack... "Chasing the Angels" by Mike Reno.

Hate the movie but love the music!

I find it funny that they use footage from the first movie but the music is from the second.

Sorry! I just now realized I typed that. The "A" is next to the "S" on the keyboard, so well...

Still a cute pet name for our favorite cyclops.

One of my favorite artists and a song that can be understood in different ways... such as working as a humanitarian worker flying over the world to help those in need... wink

"Broken Wings" should be included here. It was originally performed by the band Mr. Mister in 1985.
