LEARN TO FLY

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “I” as in Iron Maiden’s “The Book of Souls” album

Yes, this “Learn to Fly”

The background as to why this song was written, 2 reasons that I know of. Dave Grohl wanted to try to write a well known/catchy pop song. He was also was terrified of flying at the time & was taking flying lessons. This album was released on October 26th 1999. Long time ago, this album also solidified Foo Fighters as my favourite band. My Grandmother passed away from breast cancer on December 5th 1999. I would drive 45 minutes away to Moose Jaw, turn around & come back to Regina just to occupy my time when I was supposed to be at University. I would blast this album everyday in my car.

This was written for a ‘Godzilla’ remake released in 1998. My brother has/had the CD. Notice the lyrics “…I’m afraid of aeroplanes….”

I’m assuming this was written before the ’99 release of ‘Learn to Fly’ off of “There is Nothing Left to Lose” an album made in a week, in Virginia, in Dave Grohl’s basement, in a studio Dave, Taylor & Nate built by sound proofing it with egg cartons & a friend acting as the producer. Oh, & it won 2/3 Grammy Awards.

The Pope’s arrival in the USA is why we missed the first 28 minutes of “The Ellen Degeneres Show” on Tuesday. I record it at 2:00pm for Kim & I to watch later on. Just sayin’! JK!

Somebody should ask this guy “Who are The Simpsons?” I gave up the Simpsons in 1999 or 2000? It got old. The series began when I was in grade 6.

Songs I like, “Rainbow Butt Monkeys” one album. Finger Eleven before they got a new drummer & changed their name. “Finger Eleven” was my brother’s favourite band. We both saw the video for “Circles” at the same time & we both liked it, him a bit more than me. We both bought the CD shortly after seeing the video.
