Alanis edited for airplanes!

I was on a plane last weekend, and they had a station that played some alanis morrisette songs. When they played the song "Ironic", the cut out the whole part about the plane crashing. I found this a bit amusing so I thought I'd share

The verse went

Mr. play it safe, well isnt that nice

No joke...a one line verse!

Wow. I know they edit plane crash references out of films but songs too? (although how many songs have such a reference? I can only think of a couple). Its kind of silly. If seeing or hearing something like that would upset you if you're on plane, don't fly then.

I guess they won't be playing several Gary Numan songs - he's one of Britain's top stunt pilots and has written several songs about his close calls with crashing.

Here's one called My Centurion:

Somewhere in dark corners
I know something is wrong.
No fear, no talking
Just this long wait for pain
Scream scream
We`re going down
My centurion dies

All I can do now is wait for the noise

I`m so helpless and I could just cry inside
`No! No!, Oh God
Look at the speed, we`re going in
So this is death and it`s so calm I`m surprised

All I can do now is wait for the noise

This machine, no sign of life
Only the whisper of air
She won`t turn
She won`t climb
She won`t stop
She won`t fly
I`m falling
I`m silent
I`m thinking
I`m waiting for this thing to end.

All I can do now is wait for the noise.




Imagine hearing that on a plane.

I guess that's why in his car he feels safest of all.
