I hadn't heard this song for years, until it popped up in the trailers for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3. I had completely forgotten about it and I'm pretty sure the last time I listened to it was back when my mom used to drive me to school in the morning and we would listen to the local classic rock radio station on the drive. Say what you want about James Gunn, but he does know how to pick great songs for his movies.
The thing I love most about this song is that my three (almost four!) year old daughter loves it. I was reviewing some trailers one night and she asked me what song it was. I told her it was by a band called Rainbow, and she loves rainbows, so she asked to see the music video of the song, and to add it to her playlist that we play in the car on the drive to and from her daycare. She'll literally get buckled into the car some days now and go, "Daddy? I want to listen to Rainbow." And when it comes on without her requesting it, she'll say, "Oh, that's my favorite song!"
So this song definitely got a lot of play late last year and early this year since our family rediscovered it.
