Leaving on a jet plane

leaving on a jet plane

I caught a haunting acoustic version of Leaving on a Jet Plane sung by an unknown female singer at Jaya One over the weekend. She has great vocals and a melodic voice that instantly grabs at your auditory senses.

Any idea who she is?

  1. The only version of ‘Leaving on A Jet Plane’ that I listen to is by Chantal Kreviazuk, the original singer, writer. Is that her or those other singer that butchered the song?

  2. I thought this song was written by John Denver several years before Chantal was born? First recorded by the Mitchell Trio in 1967 & Denver himself released his own version 2 yrs later.

  3. Ben, correct! Denver’s one sounds very country. Chantal’s vocal is more powerful than that girl, HB, u’re an IT expert and a tone deaf too.. no offense but i can’t brag about being more soulful than that girl. lol lol lol lol…. yes, i don’t sing anymore nowadays but back in 1990’s i sang and took part in various singing contests including the RTM’s Bintang Kecil when I was in primary school.

  4. LOLsim: The first time I heard the song (besides from radio and other sources) was by a cover band called Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. It’s a punk band under NOFX’s Fat Wreck Chords label.
    ben: I don’t know the origins of the song, but I know I got into it late, and from a punk band to boot. Heh!
    Coki: Oh, I should definitely hear you sing. I bet you can sing well, considering the contest you took part in. Anyway, first time I heard this song, it was sung by a cover punk rock band. *shrugs*

  5. That song was so popular in the 70. My parents went to John Denver concerts and other rock concerts. I was shock to find my parents were rockers (not rocking chairs) fans. They also went to lot of disco clubs too. Sometime we see parents well old but forget they have life just like us.

  6. I always thought the song was kind of poignant, since John Denver wrote it, and he died in a plane crash…
    The song was written by John Denver, and recorded by several artistes around the same time, but the most popular early version was by Peter, Paul and Mary in 1969.

  7. Great article, but a frustrating read, due to the lack of proper punctuation in a lot of spots. Please close your quotations! If this article is following some sort of nouveau grammatical style, of which I’m not aware, I remain frustrated; however, I apologize.
