songs about air travel
Airports are a place where people reunite with friends, say goodbye to lovers or gear up for a great escape. It where people wait, sometimes for many intensely boring hours, for planes that will deliver them to some new adventure. Not surprisingly, many musicians use planes as metaphors for freedom, escape or parting. Others write songs about planes out of sheer boredom, during three hour delays. This week, we have five plane songs you can pack in your iPod and take on your next trip.
John Guerrero, the singer bassist for Lake Worth pop punk band Routine Scheme, says he barely remembers writing the Airport, a song about what happens when apologies become meaningless and breakups inevitable. was going through a really rough breakup and abusing a lot of pills and alcohol, Guerrero adm mulberry handbags its. one thing I do remember about it is that I called the song the Airport because I was imagining a relationship ending at an airport, having a limited time to say what you need to say, stumbling through words and apologies and, in the end, none of it meaning anything. I was thinking about certain movies where a girl is about to board a plane and the man runs up, says some sweet things and wins her over. Not i mulberry handbags n my story. I wanted it to have the feel of a lonely guy standing at the window watching the plane take off and knowing it over. As he puts it repeatedly in this energetic tune, don wanna be the one that holding on.
Getting stuck in an airport is a drag. Once you had your fill of drinking, eating and reading, there little to do, and crying babies make it hard to sleep. Miami Rachel Goodrich who is accustomed to making music on pots and pans, kazoos, children xylophones and anything else she can find beat the boredom of a three hour delay at LaGuardia Airport by writing the aptly titled Song. The ukulele driven tune opens with the lyrics in a terminal/Waiting on a plane/Clouds gonna precipitate/Causing a delay/Make it to Miami/Maybe not today/Baby, we can write a song and fly away.
Sometimes, we wish we could fly away from our problems. Other times, we wish they would fly away. That seems to be the case in on an Airplane, a song by Miami Beach/New York indie rocker Ronald Rip. In it, the Venezuelan native sings, walk the line for myself/To grab the mike instead/The difference is to let go/ Realize I breaking down/Stop the clock and go around/If I find my true desire in a plane/ Fly away, fly away/Everything we know is wrong. The song hints at intuition, the inner voice that comes from the part of our brains where experiences are stored and brought to bear on our decisions. I was writing Jet, I really had no idea what I was writing about, Zaid says. just flowed from within and I mulberry handbags followed its guidance. Later, I would realize that there was a spiritual message in this song and that it was mulberry handbags inspired by the idea of traveling via the imagination and soul. The title popped into my head, and I recalled an old Eastern Airlines commercial from the early that was promoting a quiet plane called the Jet. Amazing how the memory retains information.
West Palm Beach Christian rock band Stonehigh 71 is a five minute song that begins with frontman Steve Beaulieu yelling, on the plane! and ends with a full minute of a classical sounding piano. In between, it a hard rocking tune with lyrics such as not a puppet on a string/I can be forced into anything/Say what you want, this is what I need/You not sending your message to me. Beaulieu wrote the song after his band was invited to play for the troops in Iraq. of my friends and family were upset about the danger involved, and the song was written toward those that opposed me, he explains. knew that God call on my life and the life of the band was to minister to others regardless of their geographical location, and if He was calling us to the Middle East, then that where we were going. Turned out that the AFE [Armed Forces Entertainment] decided it became too dangerous and stopped sending bands in there before we were scheduled to ship off, but that didn change my heart for our troops. The whole band was on board and all were excited about the prospect. But lo and behold, it just never happened.
