Guardians of the Galaxy brings 70s hits back to the top of the charts
I think you GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY fans may get a kick out of this, as 70s classics are now finding themselves inexplicably at the top of the music charts! It's great to see everyone embracing GUARDIANS so fully, especially it's retro soundtrack that fit the film like a glove. The official soundtrack (Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1) is currenlty number 1 on both the iTunes and Amazon digital-album sales, as well as number 2 on Amazon's overall CD sales.
In case you need a reminder, here's the tracklist:
1. Blue Swede Hooked on a Feeling
2. Raspberries Go All the Way
3. Norman Greenbaum Spirit in the Sky
4. David Bowie Moonage Daydream
5. Elvin Bishop Fooled Around and Fell in Love
6. 10Cc Im Not in Love
7. Jackson 5 I Want You Back
8. Redbone Come and Get Your Love
9. The Runaways Cherry Bomb
10. Rupert Holmes Escape (The Pina Colada Song)
11. The Five Stairsteps O-O-H Child
12. Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrell Aint No Mountain High Enough
Including these classic tracks was a stroke of genius that not only connected the audience with our otherworldly characters but made sense from a narrative standpoint (unlike, say, a Tarantino flick). I would love to see Peter Quill make it back to Earth in a sequel, as I could just imagine him spending a lot of time in a vintage record shop, or having Rocket scrounge up parts to make him a tape recorder.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is now in theaters!
