Night Flight by Professor Eddy

"I wanted to do something special for AOR Disco this summer," says Professor Eddy. "After all those soft rock songs about sailing and driving, I thought it was time to put the spotlight on tunes about flying. To be honest, I have a little fear of flying myself, just like former Dutch soccer player Dennis Bergkamp and singer Gary Brooker of Procul Harum. But to overcome the fear, I have selected quite a few happy and joyful songs about taking a plane, although there are some dark tracks in it as well (from Albert Hammond, Scott Walker and The Motors).  I chose Art Garfunkel after hearing the track on one of the superb Ready 4 Airplay mixes from Flashlites Productions. By the way, according to Typically Tropical, the best airline company seems to be Coconut Airways."
