Drop the Pilot-

I think 'Drop the Pilot' is a reference/illusion to a famous 19th Century newspaper cartoon in which a Prussian politician (possibly Otto Von Bismark) is walking down the gangplank of a boat whilst a man whom I presume is Kaiser Wilhelm watches. The cartoon illustrates the end of a period of rational guidance and unification by one individual, and the takeover by a 'loose cannon' in comparison. It all ended in WWI of course.

I apologise for any poor spelling or historic innacuracy, but it is 20 years since I took my History 'O' level at school.

Regards

I'm probably thinking of a different song, but I know that there is a song out there that was about Buddy Holly's death and the word 'pilot' was in the title. That's mainly the reason it stuck in my mind because I thought it was kind of twisted to do a tribute to the most famous musician's death in a plane crash with pilot in the title.

The one I'm thinking of was performed by a British guy though, Mike something.
