Buried love anthem or a romantic-horror movie soundtrack, I can’t say.  If the lyrics of “In The Aeroplane Over The Sea” seem vague, and whatever the writer’s goal for putting such words in it, I don’t really care. There is a pinch of melancholy in its melody that makes it catchy. Fervid vocals and basic chord pattern can have you sitting and singing this song while waiting for your stop or while killing time in a warm place. Better yet, let’s put it this way: “In The Aeroplane Over The Sea” is one witty love song wrapped in a simple yet indelible hook. So grab your guitar and imagine sitting on top of an airplane overseeing the vast landscape of waters. And don’t forget to sing!
