  • Airports in Song Lyrics/Titles

    Four come to mind:

    YYZ by Rush
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YYZ_(song)

    Angel of Harlem by U2
    "It was a cold and wet December day
    When we touched the ground at JFK...."

    Car 54 Where are You?? Theme by Nat Hiken

    "There's a hold up in the Bronx,
    Brooklyn's broken out in fights.
    There's a traffic jam in Harlem
    That's backed up to Jackson Heights.
    There's a scout troup short a child,
    Kruschev's due at Idlewild
    Car 54, Where Are You?"

    Back in the USSR by The Beatles
    "Flew in from Miami(Beach) BOAC..."

      Walking in Memphis - Marc Cohn

      And I boarded the plane
      Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
      In the middle of the pouring rain
      W.C. Handy wont you look down over me
      Yeah I got a first class ticket
      But Im as blue as a boy can be

      (in reference to MEM)

        Considering the current state of Delta Airlines, "Delta Blues" is appropriate!!!

          If that had been made about ATL you would be correct, but in reference to MEM it refers to the Mississippi River Delta area and the Blues from Beale St...Which you havent lived until you have walked Beale St drunk and woke up the next day with a tattoo...hahaha...God I miss my hometown area...hahaha

            When they say ATL they don't mean the airport.

            Anyway, there is a song called "LAX" by Xhibit, and yes he does mean the airport which is made obvious by the planes in the background. Pretty cool song.

              Theres one called "airport" by The Motors, a hit in the UK late 70's, the song mentions jet plane, runways and baggage, but not an actual airport name!

              Also, again for you UK people, Luton Airport, by Lorraine Chase/Cats UK, another minor hit.

              How about Typically Tropical, Barbados - mentions of Bridgetown:

              "Ladies and gentlemen, we are now commencing our approach into Bridgetown Barbados
              The weather is fine with approximate temperature of 90 degrees Fahrenheit
              The sky is blue and the palm trees are really cool
              Captain Wilkock and his crew hope you have had a pleasant flight
              And that you will fly Coconut Airways again "

              If you shoot for the stars and hit the moon, it's OK. But you've got to shoot for something. A lot of people don't even shoot.

                  Re:

                  "LA International Airport". Yes, that's an actual song and that's the song title! It's a country-style song and really not that great. That's just my take on it anyway.

                      What you can not find on the net:

                      . - Susan Raye Lyrics - L A International Airport Lyrics

                      Standing in the silent hall waitin' for the final call

                      Says he doesn't love me anymore

                      Shaking hands I pack a bag trembling voice I call a cab

                      Slowly I start walking to the door

                      The cab arrives he blows his horn I stumble at in the early morn

                      Tell him of the place I've got to go

                      Cared a hundred single nights paid her bills and a traffic fine

                      Gettin' through these doors that's been so slow

                      LA International Airport where the big jet engines roar

                      LA Internation Airport I won't see him anymore



                      The stewardess in a miniskirt a hippie in a leather shirt

                      I started on the way to Naples Row

                      While I'm wondering where it's at I see a Paris diplomat

                      Call his kids while trying to get back home

                      Baggage car goes quickly by see my face and start to cry

                      Stumble to the lounge to be alone

                      And while I'm trying to get some rest I bite my lips and try my best

                      To fight the pain that's making me leave home

                      LA International Airport...



                      With silver wings across the sky paper trails and wave goodbye

                      To those below who've got to stay at home

                      I wish that I had flown at night so I could take that champagne flight

                      Rid myself of every tear I own

                      Soaring high above the heaven in a 747 fighting back the tears that curse my eyes

                      Captain's voice so load and clear amplifies into my ear

                      Insuring me and flying friendly skies

                      LA International Airport...

                      Foxtrot

                        Not quite mentioned in the song but a track on Donald Fagen's latest album called "Security Joan" is described in the sleeve notes as "A sweet interlude at Laguardia. Traveling man and airport security babe "meet cute" "
