bookodreams#12 – Steve Miller Band – “Jet Airliner” – (1977)

I once read somewhere that Steve Miller listened to all of his songs over and over and over again to ensure he didn’t get sick of them too quickly – and if they passed the test, he’d release them. Maybe that’s why he’s responsible for some of the catchiest rock songs of the 1970s. This song was actually written by Paul Pena but he didn’t release his version until 2000 and Miller was able to score a top ten hit with his version in 1977. It’s great.
