Subject: RE: Songs involving Airplanes
I'm glad to see that M TED listed "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea" by Neutral Milk Hotel. Not to many have heard of them but that short lived band was awesome. Not really folk (sometimes categorized as psych folk but more often indie rock), but awesome and hugely innovative. Critically acclaimed as well, the album of that name made many top ten of the 90s lists. I'd recommend them to anyone.
There seems to have been several songs about Amelia Earhart. Well here is an exceptional one by another under appreciated indie band,
The Handsome Family.
