Mike Reno, lead singer of 80s poppers Loverboy, has released a Vancouver Canucks inspired song titled “Flying High”. Reno hopes the tune can carry the Canucks all the way to the Cup.
Loverboy lead singer Mike Reno is a Vancouver native and a huge fan of the city’s NHL team the Canucks, who just finished taking an incredible seven-game playoff series against their rivals the Chicago Black Hawks to move onto the next round.
After winning the first three games, the Canucks dropped the next three, only to capture the series with an exciting overtime victory on their home ice, inspiring Reno and his producer Ben Karlstrom on local station Classic Rock 101′s top-rated morning program The Bro Jake Show, to come up with “Flying High,” a song they hope can carry the home team all the way to their first-ever Stanley Cup.
Loverboy was best known for hit singles like “Working For The Weekend” and “Turn Me Loose”, and probably should have left it at that.
