The Guardians of the Galaxy films have not only managed to tug at our heartstrings, but they’ve managed to put together some of the best needle drops in mainstream superhero movies ever. It helps that these songs aren’t just selected at random, but they have some intrinsic importance in the overall film.

But the question now is: which songs can we expect in the next movie? Well, one fan wants 1972 hit song “Dancing in the Moonlight” by King Harvest to be featured. Unfortunately, James Gunn ain’t having it, as he revealed on Twitter.

“I’m asked to include this song BY FAR more than any other. And this predictability is precisely why I’d never use it. In general, I’d rather be in the business of giving folks the thing they want that they don’t know they want rather than just the thing they know they want.”

Personally, as someone who has probably heard this song less than five times in his life, I can’t say I’m overly familiar with it, but based on its sound, I can see why Gunn would think it predictable as a shoo-in for Vol. 3. Can’t blame an artist for wanting to zig when the fans want him to zag.
