The Kinks, “This Time Tomorrow”
A pensive, uncertain song about travel. You like it. I like it. Moving on.
British Sea Power, “The Spirit of St. Louis”
Charles Lindbergh is primarily remembered for two things: a solo flight from New York to Paris, and the unspeakable murder of his infant son. But let us not forget his absolutely nutso racism, anti-Semitism, and specifically pro-Nazism. And I don’t mean the casual belief in eugenics that most white Americans subscribed to in the early 1900s — I mean full-on “Wanted to move to Berlin in 1938.”
Fuck Charles Lindbergh, is the moral.
Nelly, “Air Force Ones”
You know who’s a lot cooler than Charles Lindberg? Nelly! Sure, Nelly’s never flown an airplane real good, but he has given us many enjoyable and popular songs, and is very amusing on Kevin Hart’s BET show Real Husbands of Hollywood. Plus, as far as I know, Nelly has never said anything positive about Nazis.
