The Right Music To Fly
I wrote this blog post while I was on my business trip, and since I didn't have my laptop with me, I wrote it on paper and I'm posting it now....
Whenever I travel on a plane, I am obsessed about listening to the right song when the plane takes off and lands....And not any song would work...the beat of the song has to match the speed of the airplane as it's taking off or landing....crazy right?!
Well, it all started back in August 2007....
I was sitting in plane waiting for it to take off from New Jersey to Florida. I had the airplane headphones on, and I was listening to a random radio station on the flight's entertainment system.
As the plane was on runway ready to take off, the song "Sleepless" by Until June starts to play, and it was the first time I've ever heard this song. So anyway, the beat of the song at the beginning, perfectly matched (in a way) the speed of the plane as it was taking off...so with a big smile on my face and listening to a good song, the plane took off from New Jersey!
Since that day, whenever I travel I take my iPod with me and look for the perfect song for when the plane takes off, and the perfect song for that exact moment when the plane touches the ground as it lands!
This trip, my take off song was "In The Shadows" by The Rasmus, and my landing song was "Winds of Change" by Scorpions.
