Comments: singing flight

Come take a trip in my airship
Come take a trip round the stars
Come take a sail around Venus
Come take a sail around Mars
No one to watch while we're kissing,
no one to see while we spoon
Come take a trip in my airship
and we'll visit the Man in the Moon.

For rainbows, "I'm always chasing rainbows, Watching clouds drifting by..." For a really old flyng song, "Come, Josephine, in my flying machine..." That one's about a hundred years old. Undoubtedly I'll think about a few more after I've finished writing.

I think maybe composers find airplanes more mundane - when they feel like flying, they write about having wings or floating, not about being in machines. Which doesn't explain why there are so many songs about automobiles, but it was a good theory while it lasted.

"Defying Gravity" from WICKED comes to mind. As does "Interplanet Janet" from SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK.
