Music Playlists for Flying

Most of the time when I fly on Infinite Flight, or even control airports, I have a playlist of music I listen to. For me, it helps me focus on the task at hand while drowning out the sounds in the background. The playlist I most often listen to while on Infinite Flight is mainly comprised of 80s music (Elton John, Whitesnake, etc.) and some more recent titles (A few by Imagine Dragons). However, listening to the same few songs on repeat is bound to get… tiring. My thought for this thread would be to create a space where those of us who like to listen to our tunes while we fly (you know who you are!) can share that one song or playlist we tend to default to or maybe even one we created specifically for flying!


I’d like to invite you to share your playlist below, whether in the form of a screenshot, Spotify link or simply listed out, I’d love to see what others are listening to and quite possibly expand my playlist!

I’ll start by listing my playlist below…

  • We Didn’t Start The Fire - Billy Joel
  • Wake Me Up - Avicii
  • You Might Think - The Cars
  • Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting - Elton John
  • Bright Lights - Matchbox Twenty
  • Gimme Shelter - Rolling Stones
  • I Won’t Back Down - Tom Petty
  • Drops of Jupiter - Train
  • Here I Go Again - Whitesnake
  • Don’t You (Forget About Me) - Simple Minds
  • Dancing in the Dark - Bruce Springsteen
  • Whatever It Takes - Imagine Dragons
  • Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
  • Auf Wiedersehen - Cheap Trick

Please remember to stay on topic and that everyone has their own taste in music!

Very creative!

I have some songs that I play while I fly, some of the songs are for specific points during the flight!

  • Nothing Left to Say By Imagine Dragons - When someone runs into you in the air or on the taxi way.
  • Friction By Imagine Dragons - touching down and applying the brakes.
  • Party Rock Anthem By LMFAO - For when I need to be cheered up during the flight, or on a long approach route
  • Smooth Operator By Sade - For when I BUTTER a landing!

There are so many more, this list would be at least three miles long, by the time I would be done!
