Air travel FAWM

Right now, I am doing something out of character.
Being satisfied with the 'Receptive' melody, but very much not happy with the lyrics, I've decided to withdraw it from the FAWM thingy. And (of course) replace it with a more radio friendly song.

Often my songs hide a nod in one of my heroes direction. This time it's Chris Farlowe. I've LP's by Chris Farlowe that Wiki doesn't know about. So if you are curious about your health, don't consult the internet.
Chris recorded and (Decca) released Air Travel in 1962. A great track. Hat off to Chris and his oeuvre.

The lyrics of my yesterday's song:

Air Travel

Things we grew up with obsolete
Air travel a strict no go?
Air lobby, lobby all you like
Polution? You say ít ainít so

What if we simply go by train?
Thatís better polution wise
Thereís a train station in Paris
Parisí Centre! Thatís nice

Bridge
An airport Ė Thereís tension
Customs guys as mean as hell
Am I cueing for the right plane?
Could be, but no one can tell

Chorus
When Iím too old for air travel
Will I be sad? No, I donít care
At home I travel in my head
In thoughts elsewhere, Iím everywhere

Wear a helmet while in a cue
Helmet will absorb the blast
Grin all you like behind your hand
Haircut no thing of the past

Iíve brought my own food on the plane
Ďcause their food is just terrible
They smile and tell me: Catering
I think its nameís inedible

@LePlongeur  -
that's odd - I thought I reacted on this track,... but I don't see that here now.
So a second attempt. I like the Claw Boys Claw vibe.
The songs fades in quite rapidly.
Never heard of Chris Farlowe. If you have a title of a must hear song of that artist, most welcome!

O yes, you absolutely did write a post here. And I read it. The panicky fade in is terribly ugly. I agree.

And yes, I am convinced that you heard Chris FarlOwe sing.
Out of time, written by Jagger and Richards.
My way of giving, written by Steve Marriott and Ronnie Lane
On the Sue label he released a single under a Ďblackí pseudoniem and everybody thought he was black.
Did wonderful (live) recordings with Colosseum. A voice like thunder. Wonderful.

The air travel single I mention is earlier, from his solo/Thunderbirds period.

I believe he recorded 7 songs by Jagger and Richards with their blessing and he still performs now and then. Still got his voice and breath.
An amazing craftsman.

I like your post. Claw Boys Claw, fine musicians!
To be compared to them! Thank you! And thank you for listening!

Kind regards, Gus
