With the Blue Angels zooming above our city and terrorizing our eardrums in their annual display to reassure us that America's collective penis size is indeed still impressive, it occurred to me that we need to compile a list of the best songs about planes.
Songs about planes generally have an inspirational, soaring quality and the topic's motivated a lot of great music. Here are my top 3 tunes: Nazz's "When I Get My Plane," Swervedriver's "Planes Over the Skyline," and—hey, obviousness!—the Byrds' "Eight Miles High."
Surely you've been waiting for eons to tell the world your favorite songs about aircraft. Don't hold back. (Also, fuck the Blue Angels with a rusty propeller.)
