"LA International Airport" the LAX theme song

I just saw this on the LAX Facebook Page and thought hmmm...

A) I didn't know LAX had a theme song

B) Why wasn't LAX's song Randy Newman's iconic "I Love LA"?

C) I wonder if other airports have theme songs?

Los Angeles International Airport is the only airport with a hit song.

“LA International Airport,” written by Leanne Scott, was first recorded by David Frizzell in 1970. A year later, it was recorded in Bakersfield, California, by country music legend Susan Raye. It became one of the biggest cross-over hits of the decade, peaking at No. 9 on the U.S. country chart and No. 54 on the pop chart. It was also a big hit overseas, particularly in Japan and Australia.
