Nice one Plummy! I was trying to give a clue that wasn't too obvious, I found it very difficult.

"She's coming in, 12:30 flight"

Searched for this song on this thread and was surprised it hadn't been used (unless I missed it)

I see what your thinking is - but Rocket Man's lyrics are:
She packed my bags last night pre-flight
Zero hour nine AM

So, not correct this time Paul
First clues - early 80's- HUGE hit, still being played all the time on the radio

Agreed - everyone MUST know this song. In fact as alluded to, it was played on the radio I was listening to this afternoon.
