Songs for take-off


#1

Just about to head off on holiday and wondered if anyone else tries to cue up a great song or a great moment for the plane taking off. Can give a real rush when done right.

The chorus to Lorde’s Green Light has been a regular choice, but Prior Things by Hop Along can also give the whole thing a really cinematic sweep.

This is normal, right?

Actually did this the other week. How weird is that!?
