    There is a local non-profit group in my area that promotes music, art and theater. They are having a fundraiser called "Things with wings". I'm charged with compiling a CD with songs that are related. I can only come up with 9:
    Fly Like An Eagle - Steve Miller
    Fly Away - John Denver
    Flying Home - Lionel Hampton
    Fly By Night - RUSH (although that is a little hard rock for this)
    Wings of a Dove - Ferlin Husky
    Broken Wings - Mister Mister
    Fly Me To The Moon - Frank Sinatra
    Fly With Me - 98 Degrees
    On The Wings Of Love - Jeffery Osborne

    Any help would be appreciated. Fly or Wings doesn't have to be in the title, but just so it keeps with the theme of "Things With Wings"

    Thanks.
