Helicopter Songs

The Y! Music Playlist Blog

Some mornings when I have my first cup of coffee I decide on a band to listen to during the workday and then proceed to select multiple albums by whoever I select. This morning I realized I had not spent much time with XTC lately. I was shocked by this lapse in judgement, so I started with Black Sea, moved onto English Settlement and then onto Drums And Wires. When the song "Helicopter" came up I thought about what a great under-the-radar song it is. Then a couple more great helicopter songs popped into my head. Namely, tracks by Bloc Party and Guided By Voices. At this point I had the start of a decent playlist, so this evening I sat down and started searching. The end result is this playlist, which features a dozen helicopter-inspired tracks. And I must say, it's a pretty good listen.
