Favorite aviation themed music

im not sure if this is the right category, so sorry in advance

Sooooooo…
I’ve been seeing a lot of questions like this one asking for opinions, so I thought I’d come up with one! Naturally, every single idea I had was already a thing. Then I was listening to some music some days later, and thought to my self, what good aviation themed music is there? So I decided to make a quick search through the IFC, and found that most aviation music topics have been closed (technology, the boarding music topic is still open, but this is a bit different).
So, what favorite aviation themed music might you listen to?

Here’s what we got so far:

List of songs
  • you can always go around

  • Danger Zone (Kenny Loggins)

  • Down Under

  • Starman (David Bowie)

  • Space oddity (David Bowie)

  • Butter (Swiss001)

  • I’m leaving in a jet plane (John Denver)

  • Still I Fly (From Disney’s “Planes”)

  • Thomas the TCAS Engine (someone who deserves a Grammy)

  • Aces High (Iron Maiden)

Top of the food chain.

“Highway to the danger zone” ring a bell? On a loose note, “Africa” by Toto suits flights that traverse the African continent (LHR-JNB) for example, but overall this song really matches any time you’re above scenery. “Down Under” is also one I listen to when flying in or out of Australian airports, YSSY in particular. But it really comes down to your song taste.

Most certainly this one! This is probably the most important one! I’m gonna go ahead and add a few like Starman and Space oddity, which aren’t exactly aviation, but they’re in the general realm of flight

\Obviously Butter

In all seriousness, it’s pretty good, but @Tsumia has the real song.

Thanks for making this thread. I’ve been looking for aviation themed music but it’s all been weird with nothing to do with aviation.

Unfortunately, I don’t really know of any (that haven’t been mentioned) besides “Still I Fly” from the Disney movie, “Planes” 🤷‍♂️

Not sure if it’s a real aviation song though, lol.
