    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" "

    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...

    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 "

    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.

    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

    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)

    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..."
Working...
