Ride On A Rainbow

Album: If You Really Want It (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the opening track on the blind guitarist Raul Midón's If You Want It album.
    Midón told Songfacts it's about our minds being able to perceive realities outside of our own.

    The music is upbeat and optimistic. The lyrics start with a workday morning but quickly become a "ride on a rainbow" through quirky scenes and ideas. The song is so enthusiastic regarding the power of the imagination that it could fit in just fine on album of children's songs.
