5. “September” by Earth, Wind, and Fire
Ranking the songs of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, admittedly, isn't easy after you get past Conga. At number 5, I would put Earth, Wind, and Fire's September. My 19-year-old thought this was better than my choice for the No. 2 ranked song, but we will get to that later. His opinion was that it fit better with the rotation of the ride, specifically the turns around the moon.
I disagree. For me, while I like the song addition and it did feel pretty awesome, the intro left something to be desired. I didn't get the actual initial impact of the song intro and that left the start of the ride a little less enjoyable. Once it got going though, it was awesome.
4. “Disco Inferno” by The Trammps
At number 4, I'm going with The Trammps, Disco Inferno. I will be honest, I love this song as part of the soundtrack to Cosmic Rewind. It fits with the theme of the ride very well and has a lot of up-tempo energy that makes you want to jump out of your car. The introduction is on point and gives you that high energy from the gate but it
For me, Disco Inferno gets a spot above September simply for the opening sequence but if you don't mind that part, September is a much better mid-ride track. Disco Inferno loses some of that early energy and and takes a bit of a dive when the lyrics beyond "Burn baby burn" fade to the non-chorus lyrics.
Overall, both of these songs result in the same enjoyable overall experience. I enjoyed Disco Inferno a little bit more, but neither will disappoint you.
