Question: I hope you'll answer this question because Google has finally, inevitably, failed us. The theme song for the show Airline is a jazzed-up version of "Leaving on a Jet Plane." It sounds a lot like Counting Crows, but... not quite. We love it, though, and find ourselves randomly singing it around the house for days after an episode. Can you please tell us who performs that song, and if it's available anywhere? Thank you for doing what Google cannot. We love you, man. Toni M., Manassas, Va.
Televisionary: Well, if Google could dial a phone and ask an A&E publicist, it could probably write this column, too. But it can't, so I remain employed.
The version you enjoy so was recorded by singer Jimmy Coup and studio musicians Steven Miller and John Fields specifically for the show. Coup tells me it'll soon be available for purchase, but he doesn't have details on that right now. However, if you'd like to check for updates on that (and sample some of Coup's original music), stop by his site.
And I love you, too, man.
