this has probably already been done, but…
I’m very amused by the Wikipedia summaries for Cabin Pressure episodes.
It might just be me
But do some of these
Make Cabin Pressure seem a lot more vivacious
And a bit more racy
Than it actually
(Except this one)
- you have to don your cap before dealing with a fire
- otherwise how will the fire know who the captain is
So I tried to come up with the ultimate Cabin Pressure playlist for the loving fan - this is a collection of the proper versions of (nearly) every song mentioned or sung in Cabin Pressure. Enjoy!
(Missing: The “Dragon Song” in Cremona, the two songs played during the safety recordings, and the song that plays in the lobby in the Excelsior. Did I miss anything?)

I love this quote so much because of the parallels with Finnemore himself. "Do you want to hear one you’ve never heard before?" The main thing I like about John’s comedy is his originality. "My biggest weakness is I’m not very good at flying" and "I don’t do it easily, it’s not second nature to me"; John has always made it clear he doesn’t enjoy writing, it’s not what he loves most of all but he’s a perfectionist and wants to be the one in control. I can also easily imagine that he used to feel like a one, then became a two, and so on, and that he’s only getting better. "…even when you turn me down, I’m going to keep flying", the BBC did turn his Souvenir Programme down the first time but he kept going and this year we’re getting the 4th series of a show that got a “no” once. This whole speech could’ve directly been said by Finnemore and will always be one of my favorite quotes.

But the thing is, we’ve taken away all the things that can possibly have happened, so I suppose the only thing that’s left, even though it seems really weird, must be the thing that did happen, in fact.
