12) Catch Me If You Can “Jet Set”
This song comes from the hit Broadway musical of the same name. Inspired by the events of Frank Abagnale Jr, who for years posed as an airline Captain in order to ‘dead-head’ on flights around the world. It is estimated that Abagnale flew over 1 million miles, never paying a penny.

Taken from her second album, the song failed to set the charts on fire, only reaching number 15 in the UK.
15) The High Life “Theme”
Performed by Forbes Masson and Alan Cumming A.K.A. Air Scotia’s very own Steve McCracken and Sebastian Flight, this was the theme to the short-lived, but much-loved BBC Sitcom ‘The High Life’. Unfortunately, there was only ever one series made due to Alan Cummings up coming Hollywood fame. As the camp duo would have said “Oh deary me….”
