Every single song about Steven Slater

Since flight attendant Steven Slater’s unorthodox deplaning on Monday, August 9th, from a jetBlue plane on which he had been working, there have been no less than twenty-one different songs on the subject written and recorded and posted to the internet.

This is all of them.

If you know of any not featured here, or related folk-musical artifacts or oddities tied to the subject, leave me a comment and I’ll be sure to get them added. If you’re curious about the backstory to some of this, see my previous post about the Slater folks music / viral weirdness thing.

My interest has largely been in collecting actual recorded musical compositions/performances, but there are few things I’ve tripped across that fall more on the periphery of this collection than anything. Again, let me know if I’m missing anything interesting.

 

Here’s a cover of Rachel’s ballad by youtuber Kimfob:

 

IGN blogging-type-person That Reilly Monster wrote lyrics to a ballad

 

CartoonOverlord put together an odd little animation complete with jingle, Steven Slater – Fabulous Quitter

  1. Hi! I’ve enjoyed reading your blog, especially your compilation of Steven Slater-related videos.

    There is a video that I created and posted onto YouTube on August 11 — “STEVEN SLATER STYLE TRAINING VIDEO” — that, by my standards, was moderately successful (1,200 views thus far).

    Thank you. (btw, you’ve gained another reader.) (-:
