It’s time for another Notes from a Composer musical quiz!
All musical tracks and/or musical quiz queries will be somehow related to air travel, to tie in to these shots I took out the cabin window of our sunset flight west from New York City to Madison, Wisconsin. We took off with the setting sun, and kept pace with it – almost – for several hours, for what would be the slowest setting sun I remember experiencing.
High Flying Music Query #1 – Which fab rock band recorded this track called “Flying”?
(as always here at Notes from a Composer, answers to the quiz queries are embedded in the tags below)
At one point the phone camera turned its lense around for this unplanned selfie of me trying to make a shot avoiding the smudges on the cabin window pane…
High Flying Music Query #2 – Who is the High Flying Adored person being sung about here in what titular musical (and who are the two Broadway stars doing the singing?)
High Flying Musical Query #3 – In which new movie musical do we have Nowhere to Go But Up (if you listen to the track and still can’t guess, I despair for your inner child)? And which icon is heard handing out the balloons?
High Flying Music Query #4 – What still-rocking-after-all-these-years band recorded this song about joining the Mile High club?
High Flying Musical Query #5 – Which famous dancer is Flying Down to Rio?
High Flying Musical Query #6 – In what Tony winning musical does a daughter remember playing “airplanes” with her father in the finale called Flying Away?
High Flying Musical Query #7 – Who sang in which James Bond movie the title sequence theme “All Time High”, which is sadly not an all time high compared to most (if not all the other) James Bond movie themes?
We rode with the setting sun for several hours, but eventually we were outpaced, and landed in proper night time, but not before diving into the clouds…
Musical Comical Bonus Query – Who is this comic riffing on Airplanes?
Thanks for joining me on this orange sky flight. Hope you enjoyed the music quiz.
